Dale G. Goetzke, 71, died suddenly Nov. 21, 2021. Retired from his IT profession, he found a creative use of the computer to convert his photographs into art.
He participated in many St. Paul Art Crawls over the years, changing up his art every year. He was talented enough to be entered into the Minnesota State Fair Fine Art show twice! He and his “trophy wife” (his words) had been together 25 years, but only got married on Leap Day, 2004. He liked to say that he always remembered his anniversary that way.
He is survived by his wife, Paula; brother and sister-in-law Chris and Patti, his sister and brother-in-law Lynn and Knute; and his daughters, Julia and Melanie.
Service was held Nov. 30 at St. Anthony Park Lutheran Church. Memorials for Dale Goetzke, Springboard for the Arts, ATTN: Individual Giving, 262 University Ave. W., St. Paul, MN 55103.
