SWARNER, Dale Morris
"Born to Mr, and Mrs. George Clarence 11 o'clock Thursday, Feb. 5th, a fine eight pound son, whom they have named Dale Morris. This little bud of promise welcome to home and heart, makes the home complete and the heart full of father and mother love."
Dale Morris Swarncr of Pasco passed away peacefully on Monday, May 6, 2002 with his loving family at his bedside. Dale was born on February 5th, 1925 to George Clarence Swarner and Ava Margaret Clemmer Swarner in Hartford Kansas.
Dale was 12 years old when he and his family moved to Wendall, Idaho where he resided until he graduated from high school. He entered the Navy on December 29th, 1943 during World War II and served on the USS Thetis Bay, a small aircraft carrier. When asked how long he was in the service he said "2 years, 3 months and 27 days." From kamikaze attacks, combat, typhoons, meeting a high school friend in the middle of the Pacific, utter boredom, to being in the middle of the Pacific at the surrender of Japan; it was an unforgettable experience. He claimed the reasons he joined the Navy were, "not wearing a neck tie and having a bed and warm food (unless we had to swim)." After being discharged, he worked a year and then entered the University of Idaho in Moscow, where he met Joann Yvonne Place, a fellow student and future wife
"Shortly after we were married, I had an old car - a 1936 Chevrolet - which had to be moved because it was parked at a student dormitory. I hooked a chain around the bumper, got in the car and told my wife to put it in gear and pull it out with her car. She put it in gear, hit the gas and went down the road dragging the bumper and leaving me and the ear sitting. When we managed to survive that, shortly after our marriage, we thought we would probably make it." Dale and Joann celebrated their 50th anniversary on November 4th, 1999 and have resided in Pasco for the past 48 years.
Dale was a Washington State Department of Transportation Engineer and the office engineer on many of the major highway projects in this area including the 1-182 Twin Bridges between Richland and Franklin County. He retired in 1987 after 30 years with the Department of Transportation. Prior to working for the DOT he farmed, worked in construction, operated heavy equipment, leveled land and hauled trailers throughout the northwest.
After retirement he was active in Project Literacy, tutoring adults and children. Dale and Joann enjoyed driving to various destinations across the United States to see family friends and meet with shipmates at the annual Thetis Bay Reunions. A mutual interest in family history and genealogy led to trips where they visited cousins, who they had met for the first time and became close friends. They toured and took photos of churchyards, cemeteries, libraries, and locations where their ancestors had lived. As a useful hint to anyone checking our family history: Joann Yvonne Place was born in Bowman. ND and is the daughter of Edward Milton Place and Lula Almira Anderson Place.
Dale was a member of the Ameriean Legion Post #34 Elks Lodge No. 2755, Moose Lodge #482, Richland Riverside Rotary and served on the Retired Public Employees Council. He was a long-time member of Pasco First Lutheran Church.
Dale is best remembered by his family for his strength, courage, persistence, sense of humor, laughter, twinkling blue eyes, faith in God, long drives in the Cadillac, cherry picking, trips for ice cream, Saturday drives, rides on the back of his wheelchair with red handlebars, being a hottie, not holding grudges, trips around the block and the mall, being a guinea pig, "you smell purrty," stink juice Natural Light, thumper bird, growling, "pull up your landing gear," love for watching his grandkids play sports, being good lookin, naked angel food cake, crossword puzzles, Juicy Fruit gum, being a stickler for table manners, "try it," 39 and holding, Old Spice, patience while driving people around, dangerous card tactics, teaching his kids the rules of the road, "Yakety Sax" and his love for all types of music.
Dale is survived by his wife Joann, daughters Kathy Latham, husband Jesse of Richland; Patricia Cabaldon, husband Larry of Rancho Santa Margarita, CA; and Jan Ulmen husband Roger of Kennewick. Dale has four granddaughters: Tara Latham, Michelle Ulmen, Melissa Ulmen and Shanna Latham, all of whom have lived in the Tri-Cities since birth and have spent their time knowing, loving and winding him around their little fingers. His step grandchildren include Lauren, Christopher and Dylan Cabaldon; getting to know the three of them during numerous visits was a wonderful blessing. His nephew, Mike Baker, wife Peggy and their daughters (his great nieces) Stephanie and Kimberly Baker have become like granddaughters to him. All of his grandchildren held a special place in his heart.
He is survived by his brother George Swarner, wife Dorothy of Twin Falls. ID: sister Pearl Harshbarger, husband Gary of Russellville, AL; brother-in-law Erling Place of Plummer, ID; sister-in-law Ruth Pierson, husband Bob; and sister-in-law Helen Evans, husband Ken of Spokane, WA.
