DALE EUGENE CLARIN August 27, 1931 – May 18, 2017                   Dale Eugene Clarin, age 86, a life time Menahga, MN area resident, peacefully passed into eternity on Thursday, May 18, 2017 at the Green Pine Acres Nursing Home in Menahga.                 Dale was born on August 27, 1931 in Rapid City, South Dakota to Henry and Edna Clarin.  As a young boy, Dale moved with his family to a farm near Menahga, moving all their possessions by horse and wagon.  He attended country school and grew to manhood helping on his father’s farm where he learned at a very young age the value of good hard honest work.  As a young man, Dale ventured to the Twin Cities where he learned carpentry and cabinet making skills working in both these fields in a long time career.  He returned home to operate the family farm in the late 60’s after the death of his father.  He moved into a home he purchased in Menahga and retired from active farm life in the mid-1990’s due to losing his sight from glaucoma and becoming totally blind. He became a resident of the Green Pine Acres Nursing Home in April of 2013.  Dale will be long remembered for his quick wit, his sharp tongue and the many old stories he would tell.                 Dale will be lovingly remembered by his brother, Don (Marsha Christenson) Clarin of Billings, MT.; his six sisters:  Joyce (Warren) Nelson of Ridgecrest, CA, Janet (Jim) Makela and Joan Torma all of Menahga, MN, Jewel (Ron) Anderson of Walker, MN, Linda (Dick) Nevala of Big Lake, MN and Lora (Eric) Erickson of Maple Grove, MN as well as many nieces and nephews.                  Dale was preceded in death by his parents and two brothers: Leon and Gary.                 Funeral services have been set for 11 AM Monday, June 5, 2017 at the Cardini-Pearson Funeral Home in Menahga with Rev. Loren Ferch officiating.  Visitation will begin one hour prior to the service.  Burial will be made in the Menahga City Cemetery followed by a luncheon at the Menahga VFW.  To leave on line condolences please visit www.cardinipearson.com
