Dale E Weibley, age 74, joined his Heavenly Father on June 17, 2020. Born on August 18, 1945 to the late Harold Scott and Ethel Mae (Barnes) Weibley in Green Park, he was a devoted husband, father, grandfather and great-grandfather. Dale was a down-to-earth man who loved and provided for his family, who never complained, and could always find someone he knew, even in Disney World. His twinkling eyes and broad grin always indicated he was thinking about his next joke. His many nicknames included Scotty, Scooter, Ski King, Pap, and Little Pap.
Dale was a great volunteer who loved community service and was always willing to help. He is survived by his loving wife of three days shy of 54 years, Martha (Ricedorf) Weibley, and their three daughters: Suzanne Reisinger (Danny) of Ickesburg, Michelle Sweger (Robert) of Loysville, and Kristen Comp (Brent) of Elliottsburg. He was the grandfather to six grandchildren: Kenny Reisinger (Stefanie) and Jacob Sweger of Loysville, Jordan Sweger (fiancée Daphney) of Shermans Dale, Kevin Reisinger (Ashley) and Briley and Ryver Comp of Elliottsburg. He also had three great-grandchildren: Landon and Lucas Reisinger of Loysville, and Everly Reisinger of Elliottsburg. In addition, Dale is survived by three sisters and one brother: Bonnie Bupp (Ezra) of Elliottsburg, Barbara Melius of Shermans Dale, Beverly Beam of Loysville and David Weibley (Cathy) of Mechanicsburg.
He was a member of the Faith United Church in Ickesburg. His community service included memberships in the Ickesburg Lions Club, Lifetime member of the Ickesburg Sportsmen Club, Ickesburg Fire and Ambulance Club and the New Bloomfield Fire Company. Dale has made too many flavors of homemade ice cream to count for the Ickesburg Carnival. He was a hard-worker, great provider, and fabulous family man – always putting his family first. If Dale disappeared from his post, he was usually found in the kitchen. He always looked forward to family meals on Sundays. He was the first person to have his plate filled.
Dale retired in 2017 as an Operator for Pennsylvania Department of Transportation. Dale’s complete work history included working for Duffy and Motts apple factory, Carlisle Tire and Rubber, Central Storage, Roadway, Township Supervisor for Northeast Madison Township, 35 years as Co-Owner of Scott Weibley and Son Fertilizer and Lime, and most recently part-time assistant at Nickel Lochstampfor Family Funeral Home, Inc.
Dale’s many interests in life were watching Western movies, game shows, and live dirt track racing at Port Royal. He didn’t miss attending his grandchildren’s’ sporting events. He was the church softball team’s biggest fan, and his greatest joy was taking Briley and Ryver on Ranger rides.
A public viewing will be held Saturday, June 27 from 9 to 11:30 am at Faith United Church in Ickesburg. Following the viewing, a public funeral service will commence. These services will follow the COVID parameters of social distancing with masks recommended, but not required. Interment will follow the service at Restland Cemetery in Loysville.
Memorial donations may be made in Dale’s name to Faith United Church, 6968 Veterans Way, Ickesburg, PA 17037.
