Dale Allan Wallick, 69, of Mount Wolf died peacefully Wednesday, April 11, 2018. He was born on September 7, 1948 at the Columbia Hospital, Columbia, PA. He was the son of the late Raymond Freed Wallick and the late Ethel Pauline (Mundis) Wallick. He grew up in Hellam Township and claimed Highmount as his hometown.
Dale graduated from Eastern High School in 1966, where he enjoyed playing basketball for the high school team. After graduation, he worked locally building houses and also learned the masonry trade using this talent at part time work throughout his life. He retired from Standard Register Corporation, where he was employed as a printer on the night shift most of his working life.
Dale owned a small farm in the Starview area, which was his passion. There he grew hay, straw, wheat, barley, and corn. He especially enjoyed selling his harvests at various Lancaster County auctions, where he had loyal customers, including the Amish community. Dale enjoyed attending public sales, especially farm sales. He loved catching up on the news and gossip with many of his loyal friends who visited him often, even when he was not able to travel to see them. Over the years, he assisted many local farmers and friends with butchering their hogs and steers.
He was a lifetime member of the Fairmount United Methodist Church in Highmount. There he served in various positions over the years. This included serving as a trustee, working on the annual Highmount picnic committee, and assisting with maintenance at the church and picnic grounds. He also served on the Highmount Cemetery Association for many years as treasurer.
