Dale Anthony Desautel

Dale A. Desautel, age 59 of Pierz, MN passed away Sunday, October 8, 2017 at the Harding Place where he resided the last 17 years. He was born November 13, 1957 to Armond and Muriel (Patnode) Desautel in Cloquet. Following graduation from high school, Dale served in the US Army as a sharpshooter.

Dale loved root beer and malts and enjoyed watching his TV favorites; Price is Right, the Young & the Restless, and Let's Make a Deal. The Dr. Phil show was one that he did not like. He enjoyed visiting with some of the residents and staff, playing BINGO, participating in exercises, when he was feeling up to it. Dale was apprehensive to go on outings but once he was involved, he enjoyed them. When leaving Harding Place, Dale would ask lots of questions and stay close to people he knew; and again he would enjoy himself once he understood what he was going to be doing.

Dale was preceded in death by his parents; and his brother, Ronald. He is survived by his brother, Gary (Peggy) Desautel of Duluth; nephews, John and Joseph Desautel, Mike Savolainen and niece, Katie Desautel.

Visitation will be held from 10:00 AM until the 11:00 AM Funeral Service Tuesday, October 17, 2017 in Nelson Funeral Care, 1004 Cloquet Avenue in Cloquet. Military Honors accorded by the Cloquet Combined Honor Guard. Interment will be in Old Calvary Cemetery in Cloquet, MN. Visit the guest book at
