Dad was an amazing man to say the least and he will be missed by many people. He was successful in everything he did because of his hard work and dedication and passion for life. His career was in banking, as an auditor for many years and he traveled a lot with mom in my younger years for work. As I grew older, Dad grew passionate about his family. He took a genuine interest in my accomplishments and may have seen the same dedication he had when he was studying for his career. He always cared for others, and was ALWAYS a great father to me. In fact, he is the only father I ever had. My dad always believed in me and pushed me to places I thought I could never go. He loved his wife, my mom, he loved his dachshunds, and he loved living life to the fullest. God blessed my mom and I with someone who always put us before himself. When no one else believed in things I wanted to do, HE DID. We had many wonderful talks over Jack Daniels about the Bible, about our passions for Christ and about our passion to live life to the fullest. I will miss him so much, words cannot describe the pain I have in my heart for his absence. As a competitor himself in wrestling and sports, he always pushed me to my edge as well with my swimming competitions and challenged me to go higher and further. He never stopped believing in doing the right thing and helping others. He accomplished something that is not anything earned or worked for...and that was being a great father to me. It was a gift to him from GOD to help others, and that is exactly what he did for me. I will always cherish our "poker" and "jack" nights and sending mom to the grocery store to get us more jack because we wanted to keep playing poker. My dad loved his life with his kids and friends and many people will miss him. Even after his retirement, he choose to work with me, in law. He held my briefcase everyday and we went to work. He loved helping people. People that I do not even know that well loved my dad, just because...my Dad had such a tender heart and compassion for others. That is the Dale Bybee I knew. I will never ever be able to repay him or recount all the memories because there are so many good ones, but I will tell you that I will miss him everyday. We can say GOD is GOOD with tears running down our cheeks because we know dad is not suffering anymore, he can see, he can walk and he has no more pain anywhere. He is with Christ walking in the garden of light. I can't wait to see him again. There are too many passages in the Bible to refer to but the Lord drew me to these 2- Proverbs 3:5- "Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding." & Matthew 11:28-30 28 “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.” I know Dad is okay now, and now I fight the battle here on earth until we meet again. I love you DAD forever and I will miss you every breath I take here without you. You were the only father I ever had and I will never forget you or what you did for me. You always stood up for me and believed in me. I would not be where I am today without that trusting in your heart you had for GOD for me.
