Dale M. Kunau
March 11, 1927 – August 2, 2016
The Lord called Dale M. Kunau home on August 2, 2016. He was born on March 11, 1927 in Rush, Colorado to the late Jacob and Violet (Hopkins) Kunau. Dale was a lifelong resident of Rush where ranching, farming and raising cattle was his lifetime occupation.
March 10, 1957 was an exciting day upon his marriage to Yvonne Swedhin whom he met during a Christian revival in Rocky Ford, Colorado. They were thrilled with joy on March 3, 1960 when their first son, Loren was born. Shortly after, a daughter, Juanita arrived on June 3, 1961 who was of course very welcomed. Once again on December 27, 1962, a daughter, Carol arrived which was a delight. To make the family complete, another son, Marvin was born on February 4, 1968.
Years later, two of the children married and eventually blessed the family with grandchildren. The years passed quickly with marriages of grandchildren and the arrival of great grandchildren.
Dale is survived by his loving wife, Yvonne; sons: Loren and Marvin; daughter, Carol (Christopher) Wright; grandchildren: Jason (Sarah) Kunau, Brad Kunau, Angela (Cody) Miller, Stacey (Josh) Wiese and Leah (Kaleb) Tandberg as well as three great grandchildren. He was preceded in death by his daughter, Juanita; three brothers and four sisters.
Funeral services will be held at 11:00 a.m. on Monday, August 8, 2016 at Kendrick Bible Church, 2985 County Road K, Rush, Colorado 80833. Interment will follow at the Kendrick Community Cemetery.
