Obituary for Dale Wayne Newman

Newman, Dale Wayne
It is with great sadness that the family of Dale Newman announce his sudden passing. Dale is survived by his loving wife of 40 years, Tracy (Asselin), and sons Dustin and Danny. He is survived by his sister Diana Koski (Ray) of Thunder Bay, and predeceased by his parents Reino and Ilona Kaukinen, and nephew Derek Koski. He will be remembered by nephew Ryan Koski, Aunt Velva & Uncle Pekka Roininen, Aunt Lillian and friends and cousins in the Thunder Bay area.
Dale was born in Port Arthur (Thunder Bay) and attended Lakehead University. After marrying Tracy in 1979, they re-located to Winnipeg where he began his career with Eaton’s. His sales and people skills kept him in demand, starting in the Bargain Basement, and moving him around to Men’s Wear, Sporting Goods, and the Housewares departments. He was instrumental in the development & opening of Eaton’s Business Centre and then accepted a transfer to the Buying Office in Rexdale (Toronto).
He moved Tracy and 3 year old Dustin to Brampton and Danny arrived a year later. He then switched careers, starting up the Canadian operation of Software Publishing in his basement, then moved onto VP of Sales & Marketing at Ingram Micro D. The sunny south called and once again Dale moved the family, this time to Scottsdale Arizona to become VP of Sales and Marketing at FormGen, a U.S. based software manufacturer. Dale was responsible for worldwide sales and marketing and was instrumental in launching FormGen’s award winning software program "Duke Nukem 3D".
Upon returning to Brampton, Dale became VP of Sales & Marketing at Keating Technologies until a massive layoff in 2007 resulted in him starting his own business, Global Leasing and Finance Group, which offers financing solutions to manufacturers, dealers, and owner/operators of heavy equipment.
Despite a stellar career, Dale was first and foremost a family man and enjoyed many holidays and cruises with his family. His visits to the family cottage found him at his most relaxed. Dale’s many hobbies and pastimes included cooking, reading, golf, music, and theatre. All was well when you found Dale indulging in the latest best-seller, lathered up with the sweet smell of Coppertone wafting from the backyard.
Dale will be remembered for his strength, wisdom, quick wit and love of family and friends. Nothing made him more proud than watching his sons develop into fine young men. They were his source of joy and comfort.
Private cremation has taken place.
In lieu of flowers, a donation made in Dale’s name to a charity of your choice would be gratefully appreciated.
A tree will be planted in memory of Dale in the Dods & McNair Memorial Forest at the Island Lake Conservation Area, Orangeville. The annual dedication service will be held on Sunday, September 8, 2019 at 2:30 p.m. Condolences may be offered to the family at

Tracy, Dustin and Danny.
We were so shocked and saddened to hear of Dale's sudden and unexpected passing. He was and will always be remembered as one of my favourite people. As such he was the obvious and only choice when it came to asking someone to do the "toast to the bride" at our wedding. I remember you both thanking us for our wedding as I believe Danny was conceived during that visit. That always makes me smile and laugh. Dale was always a source of fun and laughter for our family (the extended Lempiala family) and he was a source of mentorship to both his younger cousins Eric and Ricky. He was such an important part of my childhood/teenage years and even though I didn't see him much of late, he will be sorely missed. The world is a lesser place without his wit and charm. It's sad to know I won't be able to see him again and say "Hey cuz, how's it going? You look good, " and give him a hug. Our deepest sympathies,
Kathy and Greg Lundy
Erin and Andrew, Ben and Jocelyne, Zack (Astrid and Aela)
