Dale K. Brasel, age 65 of Perham, MN died Tuesday, February 16, 2021.
Dale Kenneth Brasel was born August 4, 1955 in Park Rapids, MN to John and Ann (Oldenburg) Brasel. He attended school in Park Rapids before graduating from Perham High School in 1973. Dale or “Skeet” as some knew him, started working at Tuffy’s around the age of 18 and continued working there for over 42 years. Softball was one of Dale’s passions. He also liked to golf and drive his Caddy. Dale will be remembered as a remarkable father, raising his three children all on his own. Dale always made it a point to take his kids fishing and camping. The kids loved these activities, but later in life, they found out that Dad really didn’t care for either camping or fishing! Dale often put his personal activities to the side so that he could care for his children.
Dale is survived by his three children Mike Brasel, Jamie (Matthew) Donat, and Angie (Kenneth) Cox; his grandchildren Tristin Brasel, Trent Wolford, Connor Swenson, Gavin Burns, Harley Brasel, Phoenix Brasel, and Lucien Brasel; his great-grandchildren Paislie Brasel, Christian Swenson, Baylon Swenson, and Nolan Swenson; his siblings Janice (Gordon) Pederson, Jack Brasel, George (Gina) Brasel, Chuck (Kathy) Brasel, Diane (George) Rux, Carol (Russel) Schaefer, Lois (Dave) Samuelson, Darla Brasel, and Ed Brasel; along with numerous nieces and nephews.
Dale was preceded in death by his parents; his twin brother Dean “Bugs” Brasel; and his three sisters Jeanie Veal, Vicki Derung, and Judy Hanson.
