Dale Andrew Benson, age 44 of Coon Rapids MN, passed away January 13, 2022.
Remembrance celebration will be Sunday, January 23, 2022 – please contact the family for more information.
Born & raised in Cottage Grove, Dale enjoyed playing football, wrestling & meeting his high school sweetheart, Marcy. They both graduated from Park High School and soon had their daughter, Natasha. They headed for a life of adventure together.
First stop, Idaho, where Dale and Marcy had their son, Brandon and the Benson family was complete. Next stop, Illinois and after that, Kentucky. Eventually, Dale and his family moved back to Minnesota for good.
Dale traveled the world during his life and never failed to bring his family something from each and every place. He loved telling his stories and sharing his experiences, he taught us almost everything we know today. From color correcting labels to pitching a tent, to changing our windshield wipers to showing us the world through hiking, Dale always had an answer. Sometimes the answer was "ask mom" but hey, that's still an answer.
Dale lives on through his wife Marcy, his daughter Natasha, and his son Brandon.
