Dale Hovenga



March 23, 1936 – January 15, 2023

On January 15, 2023, Dale Hovenga passed into his heavenly resting place in the presence of numerous family members. He was preceded in death by his parents, three daughters, four brothers and five sisters. He leaves behind his wife, six children, fifteen grandchildren, thirty-one great grandchildren, nineteen great-great grandchildren, one sister, one sister-in-law and nieces and nephews. 

Dale served in the United States Army from 1958 to 1960, when he was honorably discharged.

His love for his Savior, Jesus Christ, was passed on to everyone he came in contact with. He put smiles on everyone’s face by continually joking and telling family stories. Till we meet again.
