Dale Louis Bowe, age 73, a resident of Trego, Wisconsin, died on Sunday, May 3, 2020, at the Spooner Health.
Dale was born on June 10, 1946, in Chippewa Falls, Wisconsin, to parents Louis and Rosemary (LaFaive) Bowe. He graduated from Chippewa Falls High School in 1964 and went to work at Uniroyal until it closed. He then went to work for Stone Crane in Chippewa Falls and later Howard Ullom Concrete in Trego. Dale married Sharon Ann Belknap on December 21, 1963, in Waukon, Iowa. They had three children: Debra Marie, Kim Ann, and Mark Robert.
