Obituary of Dale E. Kisner
Dale E. Kisner, age 86, of Hudson passed peacefully on Tuesday, March 2, 2021 at his daughter Donna’s home. Surrounded by family, he went to be with (in Dale’s own words) the best friend he’s ever had, Jesus Christ.
He was born Feb. 6, 1935 in Ogden Station, MI to Estel and Katherine (Riesz) Kisner. On September 28, 1957, he married Freda Barns. They raised three daughters on their dairy farm in the Waldron area.
He worked 35 years as a milk tester for Dairy Herd Improvement Association. Dale and Freda lived their retirement years on Horseshoe Lake in Hudson, MI. Dale enjoyed antique tractors and cars and touring the country on his Gold Wing. His favorite pastime was cheering on his grandkids at sporting activities, giving them his signature thumbs up to show his faithful support.
Dale is survived by wife, Freda; three daughters, Phyllis (the late Roy) Myers of Hudson, Donna (Kim) Baker of Clayton, Janet (Dr. H. Lee) Kanter of Virginia Beach; a sister, Kathleen Cole of Hillsdale; three sister-in-laws, Mary Kisner, Karen Kisner, and Grace (Alvin) Wheeler; 12 grandchildren, Jacob, Joseph, and Marina (Myers), Sarah, Jacob, Mark, Yeison, Adam, Dalay, and Hannah (Baker), and Lucas and Nathan (Kanter). He was preceded in death by two brothers, Gerald and Thomas; brother-in-law, Richard Cole.
