Dale was born on February 23, 1930, a son of the late Charles and Signa Trout. Dale worked as a mechanic for over 50 years in the Finger Lakes area until his retirement. It seemed to his children that he never met a stranger, especially if they were a FORD Motor Company or a car racing fan. He loved to talk and reminisce about growing up in Fayette, and all the fun they had with his family and friends. He told stories of racing and antics of being in a big farming family. He loved his family of origin as well as his own family he had with wife Frances and their five children; Donna (Matt) Dorney of Georgia. Deb (Bill) Gates of Penn Yan, Dale Trout Jr of Waterloo, David (Nancy) Trout of Candor, and Deana (Mike) Lichak of Fayette. He often remarked, he was proud of all of them and even more proud of his grandchildren, Chris, Joey (Katie), Patrick and Peter Dorney, Elizabeth (Brett) Hernandez, Katie and David Gates and Christine Lichak, Jodie Michaels, Heather LaComb and Tyler Bailey; and great grandchildren, Isabella, Josephine, Ada and Nora, along with several nieces, nephews and cousins.
Dale was preceded in death by his wife of 62 years, Frances Marie Wessig Trout in 2018; by his sisters, Mary (Harold) Litzenberger, Roberta (Leslie) Albro, Peggy (Stuart) Nicholson,and Faith Sheppard; and by brothers, Bill (Grace), Paul (Dorothy), John (Pauline), Harold, Corky (Rosie) and Donald (Lorraine)Trout.
