Born on April 2, 1949 in Brunswick, MD to Kenneth James and Lucille Virginia Dixon, Dale was the younger brother of Kenneth Leo Dixon. Dale grew up in Brunswick and graduated from Brunswick High School in 1967. He was a member of the West Virginia Air National Guard and did basic training at Lackland AFB in Texas and served in the reserves afterward. He went on to have a long career with the Department of Energy, which allowed him to travel throughout the US and many places in the world. He retired from the DOE in 2004 after over 30 years of service.
Dale enjoyed music (most notably, he was an avid Beatles fan), coaching baseball, writing poetry and vintage Corvettes. In his later years, he liked caring for his property and feeding the birds and squirrels that called the trees around his house their home.
