W. Dale Klinchuch
February 4, 1948- August 29, 2020
William “Dale” Klinchuch, 72, of Caldwell, was reunited with our Lord on Saturday morning, August 29th, 2020. Dale was born on February 4th, 1948 in Nampa, Idaho. The son of Joseph & Ileen Klinchuch, Dale was the middle child of five children. The family moved from Adrian, Oregon to Nampa, Idaho in 1953. Dale graduated from Nampa High School in 1966 and Boise State College in 1972. On November 23, 1968, he married his high school sweetheart, Carol J Ross. Together they raised two boys, Brett and Bryan, and enjoyed over 52 years of blissful marriage.
Dale had an outgoing spirt and was a successful entrepreneur. He began his career in business as an insurance salesman and then went on to work in carpet sales for Mr. C’s and Finer Floors. His entrepreneurial calling led him to start his own flooring company, Pioneer Floors. In 1987, Dale took a break from running his own business and worked for Contract Floors until 2003, when he reignited his business again, this time Dale’s Floor and Décor. Dale retired officially in 2013, but continued to do small interior jobs, sprinkler blowouts and repairs for customers around the valley. Throughout his life, every customer interaction was meaningful and genuine. So genuine in fact, that he made life-long friends of many of his clients. Dale was known for integrity in his work, honesty and fairness in everything he did.
Dale had two favorite places he loved being: McCall, Idaho and in the stands at Boise State Football games.
Dale could not think of anything more relaxing and enjoyable than spending time in the mountains of McCall, Idaho. Many summers were spent with family and friends, soaking up the sun, picking huckleberries and water skiing on Payette Lake. Winters were filled with Christmas memories at the cabin, PLENTY of snowmobiling, while enjoying the company of his kids and grandchildren.
There wasn’t a more loyal fan of Boise State Football, than Dale Klinchuch. Rain or shine—win or loss—he was there to support the Broncos. As a season ticket holder for years, there weren’t many games Dale missed. He attended as many away games as possible. From Hawaii to Virginia Tech, Georgia to Old Miss—Dale was there supporting Boise State. In fact, in 2013 he attended every game that season, home and away. As a mentor and coach for his sons growing up, sports played a huge role in his life. He coached both Brett and Bryan in numerous sporting events, including baseball, football, wrestling, basketball, and water skiing. Dale loved showing support for his children and grandchildren, and always made time to acknowledge and celebrate their activities and achievements. Those who knew Dale will always remember his smile, laughter, and loving heart.
Dale loved his family more than anything in this world. He loved God, his community, and his country. A true “people person” to the end, Dale will always be remembered for his kind, light-hearted personality, his warm smile and willingness to help others. Every person he met throughout his life was treated with respect and shown the same amount of love and light. His strong faith and willingness to love others the way God asks us to, is the legacy he left for his children, grandchildren, family and friends. Although his presence will be missed by so many— his examples of love and kindness will resonate in the hearts of all who knew him forever.
