Dale Monroe Johnson was born June 5, 1933 in Prentice, WI, to Albert and Grace (Hvass) Johnson. He graduated from Prentice High School. After graduation, he attended a business school to get his associates degree. Following that, he enlisted with the US Army and served in the supply room at Fort Riley, Kansas.

He married Joan Johnson on Sept. 2, 1967 and spent the rest of his days as a devoted husband to Joan and loving father to their son, Dwight. Upon retirement, he moved to Oshkosh, and later to Wautoma.

While growing up in Prentice, he was baptized and confirmed at First Lutheran Church. When he retired to Wautoma with Joan, they joined Grace United Methodist, and held several offices within the church. He remained a member of the American Legion, the VFW, and DAV. He passed away Saturday, November 24, 2018.

He is survived by his wife, Joan; his son, Dwight (Sherry), and two grandchildren, Katherine and Jonatan. He was preceded in death by his parents, Albert Johnson and Grace Johnson; Lloyd, brother; and Phyliss Sebelick, Lois Healey, and Darlene Beers, sisters.
