Dale Charles Dycus was born in Sealy, the only son of Charlie Dycus and
Agnes Orsak Dycus, but had seven adoring sisters; Marie, Dolores, Susie,
Eva, Patsy, Kathy and Jackie. He was raised in Sealy. He graduated Sealy
High School in 1960, attended Blinn Junior College and Sam Houston State
On February 13, 1965, Dale and the former Carla McClung were married with
ceremony held in Houston. Dale was very active in the community as a member
of CCD, the JCs, the local bank board, a republican Party chairperson,
Rotary Club, and the Sealy ISD school board.
He was born and raised Catholic, and loved his faith. Dale was never afraid
to take chances during his lifetime. He owned  an accounting business in
Sealy for 20 years and operated a meat market and grocery in Wallis for 14
years before health problems forced him to retire, a fighter till the end.
Dale loved being around people and enjoyed making folks laugh. A master at
getting on with the business of life, he never felt sorry for himself and
always put his best foot forward.
When talking to his doctors, he would never dwell on discouraging news.
Through it all, he kept a wonderful attitude, always thinking of others even
in his time of crisis. Whenever he received bad news from doctors, he would
lighten the mood or craftily change the subject. He kept a wonderful front,
and was a great inspiration to all of us. He was a wonderful husband, loving
father of his daughter and two sons, and adoring grandfather of three. Dale
loved his parents and sisters. He always honored his parents, and would
frequently call his ailing mom even while he struggled with his own
