Dale R. Folkert, age 75, of Alto, MI, formerly of Cutlerville, passed away unexpectedly on Monday, December 6, 2021, and went to be with his Lord.  He was preceded in death by his parents, Francis and Della Folkert; sister, Vivian Dubbink; brother, Lynn Folkert; sister, Ardith Hook; and brother-in-law, Jerry Tyler.  Dale is lovingly remembered by his wife of 53 years, Sharon; children, Melissa (Christopher) Borduin, Kathleen (Chad) Keech; grandchildren, Lance Cpl.
