Dodd City, Texas -- Dale Anthony Bordelon, 71, of Dodd City, Texas, passed away on November 13, 2023. He was born on April 12, 1952, in San Diego, California, to the late Noland Bordelon and Margret Norris. Dale proudly served in the United States Marine Corps from 1970 to 1976 and was stationed in Benoi, Vietnam, where he worked as an avionics electrician.

After his military service, Dale pursued a diverse career as an entrepreneur. He worked as a mortician at Hixon Brothers Funeral Home in Monroe, Louisiana, before becoming an airline pilot for ASA. Later, he served as the CEO of Marble Life. Dale's dedication and hard work made a significant impact in his various roles.

Dale left this world with two devoted children, Dakota Beaver and Savannah Bordelon and a loving co-parent, Virginia Beaver.  He is also survived by his sisters, Melanie Nelson, Denise Wood, and numerous cousins, nieces, nephews, and great nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his mother Margret Norris, father Noland Bordelon, son Gaston Bordelon, and brothers Larry Bordelon and Gary Bordelon.

Dale attended Evergreen Elementary for his primary education and later graduated from Tioga High School. He furthered his education at McNeese State University in Lake Charles.
