1954 - 2022

It is with sad and heavy hearts that we share the news that our dear friend and mentor, Dale Lonis, passed away on March 20, 2022. He lived his life with a rare grace, acceptance, and dignity. He exuded a pure and powerful love for life.

 We are all better for having known, learned from, and loved, this pillar of humanity. His incredible legacy will live on, through the lives and teachings of his many students, for whom he had great pride, love, and respect. What an extraordinary man. The world has lost a shining source of joy and inspiration.

 We are heartened with the outpouring of love for Dale and his impact on all who knew him. Dale’s wish was to leave a legacy of remembrances for his beloved grandsons, Owen and Ben. Please share your memories, anecdotes, pictures at

Just when you think you can’t…is often exactly when you must.
