Dale Edward Powell passed peacefully April 15, 2022 with family members at his side. He was born in Everett, WA April 19, 1939, and was raised in Port Orchard, WA. Dale graduated from South Kitsap High School with the class of 1957. He attended the University of Washington where he graduated from the school of pharmacy. It was there he met Patience Wheeler, school of Medical Technology. They married December 30, 1961, and moved to Port Orchard to work in his father's H&P drug store. In 1967 H&P expanded to the Westgate area of Tacoma, where Dale and family moved. Many happy memories were created in that store until it closed in 1993. Dale was a member of the state pharmacy association, receiving his 50 year practice award as did his father before him. He was a West End Kiwanis member.
Fishing and boating were his passion, as well as birdwatching with Audubon friends. A canal boat vacation in England was a travel adventure highlight for the whole family.
He is survived by his wife Patience, daughters Victoria Hanline (Brian), Andrea Pervinich (Mark), and son Matthew Powell (Stacey), as well as grandsons Nathan Pervinich (Bella), Blaine Pervinich (Darian), Lucas Pervinich, and granddaughter Roxanne Buckholz.
