Dale Wenner Obituary

Dale Wayne Wenner passed away on March 6, 2024, in Norman at the age of 85.  A gathering of family and friends in remembrance and honor of his life will be held at 2 p.m. Saturday, March 30, at Dale’s home in Norman.

Dale was born August 31, 1938, in Norman to Fred and Jessie (Guntharp) Wenner.  After graduating from Norman High School, he served his country in the Army National Guard and pursued a career in the building industry, becoming a long-time construction superintendent in the Norman area.  He married Margaret Alice Mulvey on October 19, 1963, and they raised their family in Norman.

Dale was a life-long lover of nature and never happier than when camping, hiking, or canoeing with family and friends.  He was a keen observer of all manner of plant and animal life and especially enjoyed birdwatching, marking the changing seasons by the comings and goings of his feathered friends.  His backyard was filled with bird feeders which he attended daily.  He was a highly skilled builder and tinkerer and in retirement still enjoyed working on projects large and small, and was always available to assist others with theirs.

Dale was a devoted family man survived by his sons, Mark of Tulsa, Chris and wife, Tonya, and sons Nicholas and Jacob of Allen, TX, Timothy and wife, Treka, and son Jonathan, of Edmond; and sister Faye Wenner of Norman.  He was preceded in death by his wife Margaret, his parents, and brothers Fred III and Dean.

Dale will be remembered for his love of family, his devotion and excellence in his craft, and his appreciation for the simple pleasures in life.  He leaves behind cherished memories that will be forever treasured by those who knew him.
