Ronald Dale McCombie

He was born in Beggs, Okla., to Oleta Mae and Harry McCombie on November 14, 1921 and was raised in Seminole, Okla.

Dale was a proud World War II Air Force veteran of the 305th Bombardment Group flying 28 successful missions over Germany. He received numerous medals of valor including the Distinguished Flying Cross.

He moved to Pauls Valley in 1947 and established Magneto Electric Company, an oil field service company.

In late 1963 he was one of the first businessmen in the U.S. to receive the Honda motorcycle dealer's license and named it Dale's Honda Sales where he later added the Yamaha and for a brief time Suzuki motorcycle dealerships. He sold his business in 1986 and retired.

Dale enjoyed playing on his high school basketball team until he contracted polio at 16 years of age and thus ending his "career." Later, his true sports love was playing tennis for exercise and recreation and did so for some 25-30 years and spending many enjoyable hours viewing the major tennis championships on television and attending several smaller tournaments.

In addition, his family would travel to Houston, Texas annually for several years to watch motorcycle races and later sponsored a successful regional racer, who later became a top 100 rider in the U.S. He was also an avid, active investor in the stock market.

Dale and his loving wife Beatrice of 64 years developed many lasting friendships in the community. They were active members of the First Church of God and their wonderful, caring congregation.

He is survived by his wife Beatrice at Pauls Valley Health Care; and two sons: Rev. Michael McCombie and his wife Wilda of Lancaster, Calif., and Patrick McCombie and his wife Georgeanna of Tulsa, Okla.; a brother, Darel McCombie and sister-in-law, Donna of Sun City, Ariz.; a sister, Doris McDonald of Tatum, N.M.

He is also survived by 3 grandchildren and 5 great-grandchildren and numerous nieces and nephews.

Visitation will be 7-8 p.m. Tuesday, March 31 at Stufflebean-Coffey Funeral Home.

Funeral services will be held Wednesday, April 1 at 11 a.m. at the First Church of God under the direction of Rev. Patrick McCone with Rev. Michael McCombie officiating.

Interment will be at the Mt. Olivet Cemetery under the direction of the Stufflebean-Coffey Funeral Home in Pauls Valley.

In lieu of flowers, please send donations to the First Church of God, 414 N. Chickasaw, Pauls Valley.
