Charles Hale was born to parents Charles and Mary Josephine Hale in Havre, Montana, on Feb. 11, 1942. He passed away on Jan. 4, 2019 at North Valley Hospital at the age of 76.

Dick spent most of his childhood in Blackfoot, Montana, where his father worked for the Great Northern Railroad, in Junior High School the family moved to Whitefish and he graduated from Whitefish High School in 1960. He worked for the Great Northern, Burlington Northern and BNSF Railroads for over 40 years.

He is survived by his wife of 50 years, Janice Hale and sister Roberta Garrett of California. Daughters Stacy Denning and husband Curtis of Whitefish, Randi Long and husband Frank of Kalispell, Brenda Guzman and husband Allen of Columbia Falls.

During his life he enjoyed all types of hunting, fishing, playing golf and woodworking, making many special pieces of furniture treasured by his family. On a sunny day he could be found in the backyard spending time with his wife, tending to the yard, watching birds and feeding the squirrels.

We will have a celebration of his life sometime in the summer.

In his remembrance, catch some fish, go hunting, play a round of golf, and always give a hug to the ones you love.
