Dale Lee Sheeks Sr.

July 20, 1941 — January 25, 2022

Dale Lee Sheeks, Sr., 80, of Grand Island died January 25, 2022, in Grand Island.

A celebration of life for Dale will be at 3 PM on Friday, April 22, 2022 at Apfel Funeral Home in Grand Island.

Dale was born July 20, 1941, in Grand Island to James and Ellen (Rounds) Sheeks. He grew up in Wood River and Grand Island graduating from Wood River High School. He entered the US Army on January 16, 1960, and was medically discharged. He was very proud of his service.

Dale worked at Kmart as a manager, Bartenbach’s, was self-employed as a carpet layer, and worked several other odd jobs throughout his life.

He enjoyed motorcycles, pool, darts, country music, and fishing. He was a loving father, brother, grandfather, and great grandfather. He loved living for the day, and without hesitation would give the shirt off his back for his family and friends! Dale will be missed and never forgotten forever.

Those left to cherish his memory are children: Dale Lee (Kathy) Sheeks, Jr., Sherri Lemonds, Robyn (David) Osenga, Erin Oshel Wiseman; nine grandchildren; five great grandchildren; brothers: James Donald Sheeks, Delbert Sheeks; and numerous cousins, nieces, and nephews.

He was preceded in death by his parents; and sister, Donna (Jerry) Gewecke.
