Preceded in death by parents, Russell and Florence Aanenson; and brother, Terry.

Dale was my brother-in-law. I would like to know about what time you would be at the site where he was killed. Also, where is Gold Medal Park? Any information would be greatly apprecicated.


I sent you an email, but I will post short answers here for others as well.

Gold Medal Park is in downtown Minneapolis, by the Guthrie Theatre. 2nd Street and 11th ave.

We should be getting up to Blaine to place Dale’s memorial sometime in the early evening. I think that we will be leaving at about 3:45 to 4pm, it should take around two hours to get up there, though that might be longer depending on the size of the group.

Dale had such a love for riding his bike. It was his means of transportation and he took such pride in his bike. Over the years he had ridden several thousand miles locally according to the odometers. He was a safety conscious person and always wore his helmet. He departed this earth for his heavenly home riding his bike.
