David Kingsley Dalke

David Kingsley Dalke, 84, died surrounded by his family, on Dec. 19, 2014. Born in Battle Creek, Mich., to Paul and Sarah Dalke, David was an iconic individual. The single event that would define so much of his life was joining the United States Navy, at age 17. He served for 20 years on submarines, and was privileged to serve on the initial crew as a sonarman on the first U.S. ballistic missile submarine, the U.S.S. George Washington. He served as Chief of the Boat of the U.S.S Grenadier, and of the six boats on which he served, he earned the title of “Plank Owner” on two. His travels and adventures in the Navy and on water instilled a love of both in David. The sea remained a passion throughout his life.
