FELTON - We lost a great man. Dale Hunter Matlack went to his heavenly home on August 12, 2021, where he joined his parents William E. And Martha A. Gellert Matlack.
Dale was born in Baltimore and grew up in Millersville, Maryland. He moved to Delaware about 30 years ago. He spent most of his life as an over-the-road truck driver, most recently with DDS and Greentree Trucking. He traveled through 48 states making friends along the way.
Dale enjoyed raising beagles and attending field trials all over the country. He was a member of the Woodland Ferry Beagle Club. He was most proud of producing 2 field champions.
Dale suffered from a second stroke and came to the home he loved. During his last week on earth, he was blanketed with love by his wife, family, and friends.
Dale is survived by his wife, Donna; his brother, Tim (Diana); his special cousin, Steve (Ruthanne); and his trusted dog, Harvey. He also leaves behind his niece, Melissa Pinque (Bob); her children, Libby Foxwell (Clarence), and Hunter Matlack; and his nephew, Ross Matlack (Stacy). Dale gained three stepchildren, Dawn Hood (Ed), Donnie (Gracie) and Jeff Beauchamp.
