Dale Steven Nelson

March 16, 1946 — April 5, 2024

Dale Steven Nelson, beloved husband, father, and brother was born on March 16, 1946, in Ogden, Utah, and peacefully passed away on April 5, 2024, at his home in Clinton, Utah.

 

Dale, the second of three children born to Howard and Erma Nelson, spent his formative years in Ogden alongside his brothers Dennis and Jeff. Following his graduation from Bonneville High School in 1964, he joined the United States Air Force Reserve, dedicating four years to cryptography and communications.

 

From a young age, Dale was captivated by the world of broadcasting. His passion led him to attend the William B. Ogden Radio Operational and Engineering School in Huntington Beach, California, where he earned his First Class Radio Telephone Operator License in 1969. This marked the beginning of a remarkable forty-year career in radio, where Dale's voice resonated with listeners far and wide.

 

In 1967, Dale found his lifelong companion in Marsha Webb. Their love blossomed, and they were united in marriage on May 2, 1969, and sealed for eternity in the Logan Utah Temple on April 21, 1971. Together, they built a loving home in Syracuse, Utah, where they raised their three children: Shaun, Sheri, and Ryan. In 1987 they relocated to West Point, Utah, and later settled in Cedar City, Utah, in 1996. In 2006, Dale and Marsha moved to Clinton, Utah, where they delighted in being closer to their grandchildren.

 

Dale's dedication to his faith was unwavering. A faithful member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, he served diligently in various callings throughout his life. Among his most cherished roles was his service alongside Marsha in the Ogden Utah Temple, where they found solace and purpose in ministering to others.

 

His impact extended far beyond his immediate family, touching the lives of friends, and radio listeners who felt like friends. He will be dearly missed by his five grandchildren and one great-grandchild. They will always remember his captivating stories, his light-hearted teasing, and the love he showed them.

 

Dale is survived by his beloved wife, Marsha; his brothers, Dennis Nelson (Susan) and Jeff Nelson; son, Shaun Nelson (Marsinah); daughter, Sheri Archuleta (Lawrence); and son, Ryan Nelson. He was preceded in death by his parents, Howard and Erma Nelson; his father-in-law, Lloyd Webb; mother-in-law, Donna Webb; and brother-in-law, Bruce Webb.
