Dale Charles Wiegand

27 Jul 1952 in Hermann, Missouri - 29 Jun 2024 in Wichita, Kansas


Dale was born in Hermann, Missouri on July 27, 1952 to Marilyn Grass and Clarence Wiegand. The family moved to Wichita, Kansas where Dale attended Franklin Elementary, Allison Junior High, and graduated from Wichita West High School in 1970. 

He met the love of his life, Sandy Hingst, when they were young teenie-boppers. They met at Lawrence-Dumont Stadium, where he spent all of his money buying strawberry snow-cones and popcorn from Sandy at the concession stand, just to have a chance to talk to her. 

Sandy and Dale married November 10, 1971 and most recently celebrated 52 years of marriage. They had three beautiful daughters, nicknamed Charlie’s Angels. 

Dale worked as a CDL truck driver, or “roadologist” until he retired in 2022. He loved seeing different places, viewing sunrises, sunsets, the moon and stars, finding the best cup of coffee, and meeting new people as he traveled to different small towns throughout the Midwest. 

Some would say Dale was a quiet thinker, but if you knew him well, he was well-versed on many topics and random facts. He enjoyed spending time with his family, watching baseball (especially his favorite team, the Baltimore Orioles), baking Christmas cookies, and eating great BBQ. He was a photography enthusiast, loved to visit the mountains, preferred the cold weather and snow, and enjoyed his luck winning money from scratch-off tickets and pull-tabs.

He is preceded by in death by his parents Marilyn and Clarence. 

Dale is survived by his wife Sandy; daughters Renae Wiegand (Robert Miller), Jennifer Wiegand, and Carrie Cox (Tim); his three grandchildren (Kylee McCorkle, Leia Reynolds, and Justin Reynolds). He is also survived by his siblings Judy Gibbs, Roy Wiegand, Carol Ast, and Marvin Wiegand.

A Visitation will be held Tuesday, July 2,2024 from 5pm - 7pm at Resthaven Mortuary.

A funeral service for Dale will be held Wednesday, July 3, 2024 at 10:00 AM at Resthaven Mortuary, followed by a graveside service at Resthaven Gardens of Memory,11800 West Highway 54, Wichita, KS 67209.

I recognized Dale's name right away, so I'm sure we shared a class or two.

I'm so terribly sorry for your loss and saddened that he suffered such a cruel disease.
