Dale H. Resh, 95, of Navarre, passed away quietly Friday morning, May 18, 2018.  Born November 2, 1922, in Navarre, Dale graduated from the former Navarre High School with the Class of 1940.  An honorably discharged veteran of the Army Air Corps he was assigned to the 20th Air Force, serving in the south Pacific and earning the rank of Staff Sergeant.  He completed undergraduate studies at Kent State University and received a bachelor’s degree in education in 1950.  His 35-year teaching and coaching career began at Uniondale School in Harrison County, Ohio; included several years with Fairless Local Schools where he usually taught social studies and government; and finished at Lake Local Schools in Uniontown.

A loving husband and a devoted dad and grandpa, Dale placed his wife and family at the center of his life.  Together they enjoyed all kinds of road trips and vacationed in nearly every state, most often to Florida or somewhere out west.  He enjoyed traveling, along with baseball and golf.
