Dale Joseph Gengler, 62, died Nov. 27 at home in Falcon Heights. Dale grew up with nine siblings on a dairy farm in Slayton, Minn. He completed his food science degree in 1973 at the University of Minnesota and married Irene (née Roberts) in 1974. They shared a home for 39 years and a business for nearly 25 years. Dale was a jack-of-all-trades: food scientist, chemist, Mr. Mom, product researcher, handyman, gardener and repurposer of all things otherwise used and forgotten. Dale is survived by his wife; daughter, Amanda; son, Justin (Teresa); mother, Dolores; and nine siblings. A memorial service was held Dec. 5 at St. Christopher’s Episcopal Church in Roseville.
