Obituary of Dale Tout

Roebling: It is with great sorrow that the family of Dale E. Tout announces his passing. Dale was born on 12/27/1930 in a snowstorm in Quincy, Illinois to Lyman and Anna (nee Habben) Tout. His prophesy of going out when snow was on the ground was fulfilled on 1/10/18. His heritage went back to the Mayflower, and he was a direct descendent of Basil Tout, who served in the Revolutionary War. You may have known Dale for his mid-western sensibility and work ethic, his engaging stories about his adventures as a farm boy, his exploits in the Air Force during his 22 year career and tours that took him as far north as Cold Bay, Alaska, and included time spent in South Korea and Turkey. He served during both the Korean and Vietnam conflicts. Dale was most proud to spend 23 years with the NJ State Police in various mechanic roles. Dale never met a machine he didn't like, or couldn't fix. He kept up with the times and his daily texts to family and friends were part of his routine. His garage was the heart of his home, and many will recall visits to "Tout's Garage" for conversation and advice. He repaired his tire on his Jimmy only last month. Dale met his wife, Alice (nee Jaichner) while stationed in the Air Force in Ft. Dix, NJ. They spent 57 married years together and especially enjoyed traveling in their RV to Maine, where they were stationed in the 1950's. Alice, and his son, Wayne, predeceased him. Dale is survived by his daughter, Gail Ann Fernandez and son-in-law, Louis, and by his granddaughters Jennifer Harmon and Allison Alexander, along with their husbands, Paul Harmon and Daniel Alexander. They've assured that his legacy will continue with the additions of his great-grandsons, Paul Harmon Jr. and Benjamin Harmon, and most recently, great – granddaughter Mila Alexander. Dale also leaves a sister, Patricia Gunn, in Bonaparte, Iowa, along with nieces and nephews. Dale's final years were brightened by his companion, Barbara. He also enjoyed his many lunches and friends he met at the Bordentown Carslake Community Center. There was no viewing and burial was in a Brigadier General William C. Doyle Veterans Memorial Cemetery in Wrightstown, New Jersey, on Friday, January 19th. In lieu of flowers, please take time to pay it forward, and in his memory, do something nice for someone that is in need. Condolences may be sent to www.koschekandporterfuneralhome.com
