Dale R. Jedlick Sr.

April 16, 2015
Pine Island Eagle

Dale R. Jedlick Sr., 69 now in the hands of the Lord passed away March 11th. Dale was born on November 20th, 1945 to Donald James Jedlick Sr. and Marthabelle Russell in Cleveland Ohio and spent his early years growing up on Lake Erie. He moved to Pine Island with his family in 1961. Dale started working on small engines at a very young age. He ran a family shrimp boat for a couple of years before beginning his 40+ year career as a mechanic. He worked for Chevrolet, worked on school buses, was a diesel mechanic for John Deere and worked at Marty Slater's garage in Matlacha before settling in at the Pine Island Fire Department for 24 years. Everyone who knew him treasured his mechanical advice and overall knowledge as he could figure a way to fix a lawn mower, boat engine, any household appliance to a heavy duty truck and he could do a professional paint job to restore it to like new. Dale is survived by his daughter Shanda Herbott (Dave), grandsons Brett & Josh Herbott, sister Kay Cousins, sister in-law Jacqueline Jedlick and too many nieces and nephews to mention and several lifelong friends. Dale will be sorely missed by all. Services will be held Saturday April 4th, 2015 at the Pine Island United Methodist Church @ 11am, with reception to follow.
