Dale was born October 17, 1934 to Charles and Helen Williams Taitt of Parkersburg, West Virginia. A graduate of Parkersburg High School, he married his high school sweetheart Shirley Lee McCloy on June 27, 1953.  She became his lifelong sweetheart.

Dale was a journeyman master mold maker in the glass container industry for more than thirty one years.  Outside his family, his passions were hunting, fishing and serving his Lord.  The Dale and Shirley duet shared the gospel in song.  Dale was active at Second Baptist Church of Washington in the choir, as deacon and a Sunday School teacher.  His greatest joy was sharing the gospel with others.

He is survived by his wife: Shirley Taitt of the home; six children: Michael E. Taitt and wife Barbara of Stafford, VA, Mark A. Taitt and wife Kim of Carrollton, VA, Steven E. Taitt and wife Corina of Burlington, Teala R. Taitt of Greenville, Helen J. Taitt of Washington and Bobbie Taitt of Columbia, SC.  Dale had eighteen grandchildren and twenty-two great grandchildren.
