Dale and his wife, Serita have three children and eight grandchildren. Dale says “I fell in love with quartet singing around twelve years old, and I was fascinated by the bass singers of that era. I attended many concerts to listen and learn to apply what I had heard.” Dale sang with his kids as the Evans Family until they grew up and dispersed. Through the years, Dale sang with several groups but he says, “I always wanted to sing with The Foothills Quartet. I am proud and honored to be able to still present the Gospel in song and want to continue with FHQ until the Lord tells me to retire from singing.”
