Obituary of Dale Bradford Eaton

Born and raised in Flint, MI, loving husband, and proud Dad and painful Dad-joke teller, Dale is survived by his Polish Queen, Barbara; three sons, Duane, Tim and Thom; and four grandchildren- Brenna, Molly, Fitch and Wesley.

Graduate of Flint Central High School, Dale was an AC Spark Plug employee for 37 years, and quick to remind his sons to use “the right tool for the right job.”

Dale was helpful to those in need, loved to laugh, and was like by and friends to many. Dale made Sunday family-TV nights with Disney even more fun by adding food coloring to the popcorn as it was being made. Dale was an avid golfer and enthusiastic U of M fan, and enjoyed embarrassing his sons in front of their homecoming and prom dates, reminding them that “When you’re dancing with your honey and your nose is kind of runny, don’t think it’s funny…’cause it’s snot.”
