Dale Parent, 77, of San Diego, California, passed away on August 21.

Dale was born on July 28,1938, in Westchester Township, the son of David and Elline (Patty) Wiseman Parent. David and Elline were classmates, who graduated in 1937 from Chesterton High School.

David worked for Thompson Dairy, and the family lived on Calumet Road until they moved to Hebron in 1950, where Dale graduated in 1956. Dale lettered in basketball, track and baseball, leading the county in hitting in 1955. The family moved from Porter County in 1966, when Elline passed away. David died in 1985 in San Diego.

Dale is survived by his five siblings: Dave, Diane, Darryl, Dino, and Drew; and by his four sons: Jeffrey, Mark, Gregory, and Matthew.

Our beloved brother and father will lie at rest with his parents in Chesterton Cemetery in the Parent Family Memorial beside Coffee Creek, where Dale played near his boyhood home.
