Dale R. Spindler, 76, of Sheboygan, passed away on January 7, 2023 at his home. Dale was born to the late Norman and Elsa (Schneider) Spindler on June 28, 1946 in Sheboygan, Wisconsin. He graduated from Kiel High School in 1965. Dale was united in marriage to Bonnie Neese on April 27, 1968 at Our Redeemer Lutheran Church. At the age of 18 he started working at Kohler Co. and later owned and operated his own restaurant, Spindler’s Café, in Sheboygan. He also managed Cousins Subs in Sheboygan. His favorite job, though, was working for Prigge’s School Bus Service. He greatly enjoyed driving the 4K kids to and from school. In his younger years, Dale played baseball for Kohler Company, basketball and volleyball in local men’s leagues and was in a barber shop quartet. More recently, he loved sitting outside watching others in the neighborhood do their yardwork. He was a huge lifelong Packers fan and was very proud of all his grandkids.
