Dale, the son of Gerhard and Evelyn (Krogman) Mueggenberg was born on June 8, 1943 on the family farm near Arcadia. He grew up on the family farm and graduated from St. Bernard’s Catholic High School in Breda in 1961. After his formal education Dale was employed as a farmhand. After a few years he moved to their current residence west of Breda where Dale began his own grain and livestock farming operation. On April 24, 1965, Dale was united in marriage to Arlene Haverman at Holy Angels Catholic Church in Roselle, with Fr. Victor Ramaeker presiding. The couple made their home on the farm where Dale continued his farming operation until 2006 when he retired. After retirement, Dale continued to help his brothers farm as needed. He also worked for Wittry's Plumbing and Crop Production Services for several years. Over the years Dale enjoyed, fishing, hunting, bowling, watching westerns, camping with his family, and short vacations especially to Branson.
