Milfred ‘Dale’ MacDonald was born on September 2, 1944 in Flin Flon, MB. to Alexander and Stella MacDonald (nee Hanson), and passed away on April 26, 2021 in Preeceville, SK. Dale was raised on the MacDonald Farm south of Preeceville. He married Karen Dolgopol on November 8, 1968 in Regina, SK. They raised four children together in MB, AB, SK, and BC and were blessed (we assume) with 17 Grandchildren who then begat 4 great grandchildren. Eventually Dale returned to have a residence in Preeceville and enjoyed spending time at the MacDonald family farm. He found joy in supporting and serving others. He did many travelling renovation projects for friends and family around the country and as far away as Hawaii. He prided himself in quality of workmanship and accepting most any challenge and adventure. Wherever he lived and worked he would open his home for boarders and would give work opportunities for those in need.
Eleven years ago, Dale took on the role of care giver for Bill Cooper. Dad was like a father to Bill and helped him experience many adventures not typical of these relationships. Dad saw the potential in everyone including Bill and always held out hope for every person and everything.
His Grandchildren meant the world to him, he loved them all equally regardless of distance. They hold many fond memories of the most precious gift of all from grandpa, time for laughing, learning and loving. Dale made his commitment to serve God at the Dagmar Convention in the summer of 1963. This was the foundation and core of his beliefs and he remained true to the end. His spirit of giving was influenced by this commitment. His heart and home were always open to God’s servants, family and anyone that needed a place to stay.
Dale was predeceased by his Daughter Paula Davidson (1998), Grandson Laird Bender (2004), Parents Alexander and Stella, Brothers in Law; Don Hermanson (2018) and Darrel Hermanson (2020).
Dale will be lovingly remembered by his family; Michelle Bender(Dwayne), Lynden, Lara, Leelen, Layne, Leith, Lacey, Laren, Layden, Ladner, Lake, Evan, of Edenwold; Marcella Loucks(Ira) of Regina, sons Levi(Angela), their children Owen, Tenley, son Branden(Montana),their children Mason, Gracelynn; John Davidson and children Miranda, Clayton(Jayde), Savanna(Justin) of Alberta; John(Helene), children Chloe, Jackson of Vancouver; his sister June Hermanson and family, brother Doug(Alice-Mae) MacDonald and family, sister Sandra Hermanson and family; friend Bill Cooper as well as numerous other relatives and friends.
