Dale Gaylord Enget
November 19, 1943 - January 8, 2022

Place of Birth: Powers Lake, North Dakota
Residence: Powers Lake, North Dakota
Age: 78

Dale Enget, 78, of Powers Lake, died Saturday, January 8, 2022, at Altru Hospital in Grand Forks, ND.

Dale Gaylord Enget was born November 19, 1943, to Benny O. and Selma (Sampson) Enget in Powers Lake. He graduated from Powers Lake High School in 1961. He married Janice Skalicky on September 27th, 1963 at Tonset Lutheran in rural Columbus, ND. To this union, they welcomed three children, Lyne, Torrie and Misty. They lived in Minot initially while Dale finished college, and then Berthold, Stanley and ultimately their family farm, south of Powers Lake starting in 1977.

Dale was so happy to be back home in Powers Lake. He was able to do what he always loved, farming and teaching. Dale retired from teaching in 1988, and although not active every day on his farm, he always made sure to plant “the kids field.” He loved having all his kids and grandkids compete over who sold the grain at the highest price, along with many “creative” and often outdoor, competitive games on Christmas Day.

Dale enjoyed singing and playing guitar with friends and family. He could often be found in the kitchen practicing the songs he was asked to sing at church. He also loved to make up his own lyrics to songs many of which could not be used for church. He also loved writing and reciting poetry – his favorite poem being Robert W. Service's “The Cremation of Sam McGee.”

Dale entered Maple View Memory Care in Grand Forks in the spring of 2021 and later Valley Memorial Homes where he remained until the time of his death. His time there was made better by frequent visits of family, his extended family from Powers Lake and the great care he received.
He was a member of Bethel Baptist Church in Powers Lake.

Dale is survived by his son, Torrie (Amy) Enget; his daughter, Misty (Gerad) Paul; grandchildren, Chase (Alexis) Enget, Kale (Sunena Karel) Enget, Noah Enget, Georgia Paul, Ella Paul, Greta Paul and Caden Enget; great-grandchild, Jaxon Enget; sisters-in-law, Kathleen (Ru) Drisi and Mary Skalicky; brother-in-law, LaVern Allen (Kandee) Skalicky; several nieces, nephews, and cousins.

He was preceded in death by his parents; beloved wife; son, Lyne; brothers, Obert and Herman; and sisters, Fern Albertson, Margie Johnson, Dagney Sem and Darlene Sem.

Uncle Dale, you were a legend. Very blessed to have had you as a 6th grade teacher. I can only hope to be as smart, witty, good natured, lovable and humorous as you. Heaven became an even more admirable place to be with you now in it. Give Aunt Jan and great grandma Selma a hug! Til we meet again.

I was very saddened to hear of the passing of my friend Dale Enget. Dale was a genuine character who always had an interesting story to tell or a memorable song to sing. We had so many good times in our youth growing up in Powers Lake and during our college years. Rest In Peace, my friend.
