Dale Edward Buhrdorf, the son of Elmer Henry and Helen Sophia (Baack) Buhrdorf of Potter, was born on Aug. 1, 1942 at Sidney. He was the eighth of nine children and grew up on the family farm north of Potter. On Aug. 23, 1942, Dale was baptized at St. Paul's Lutheran Church in Potter and remained a member throughout his life. In 1956 Dale moved to the Bethesda Lutheran Home and School in Watertown, Wis. There he spent the next fifty-seven years before moving back to Nebraska in November of 2013 and made the Golden Living Center his home.

Dale was always ready with a smile, to fold his hands and say "Amen" when talking about Jesus and his love for Him.

Dale was preceded in death by his parents: Elmer and Helen, his brother: Robert Buhrdorf, his sisters: Maxine Buhrdorf and Shirley Meisner and brothers-in-law: Wendell Johnson and Russel Worthman.

Dale will be missed by all who knew him. His smile and hugs were there for everyone. Dale was truly a blessing to his family and friends and is now in his heavenly home.
