Local Music Superfan and Early Blues Lovers Supporter Dale Park Passes

From our blogger, Lou:

I am heartbroken to report the passing of Dale Park, one of Hamilton's biggest local music fans. My love goes out to his friends and family, especially his beloved wife Susan.

Dale was the very first person who answered the Kijiji ad where I posted about my new group, The Hamilton Blues Lovers. We developed a wonderful friendship over the years and shared many stories as well as our love of local music. He was my earliest supporter.

I have many cherished memories of him. During a Blues With a Feeling fundraiser, Dale kept pushing me to dance with Linda, who at the time was a friend who hung out with us but later became my wife. We shared many incredible Trickbag shows together. Being invited to his wedding and seeing him dance with his new bride was another unforgettable moment.

Thank you for your friendship and all the great memories Dale. I'll miss you

In your honour, here's a track from his favourite band, Trickbag.
