Dale and his mother,
Erie Catharine Taylor Wilks
Top: He lived with his
sister and brother-in-law at Burnet, Reta and Charlie Ross, and
worked for Charlie in road construction, here preparing the Chisos
Basin in now Big Bend National Park for addition of a Lodge,
parking, and other services.
Below: This was Dale's
Plymouth car he drove both before and several years after World
War II (license plate reads 1941). It didn't have a heater and
I remember being cold all the way home with them to Brownwood
after one visit to Grandmother's.
