Dale Keith Angel

Dale Keith Angel was placed on this earth October 1, 1962 and departed his
earthly flesh and moved to his eternal home Sunday, September 20, 2015. He
had made reservations for his eternal accommodations by accepting Jesus
Christ as his personal Savior in 1986. His soul lay in wait for his ride
home at Carolinas HealthCare System - Cleveland and when God's appointed
time came he made his trip to this heavenly home to be with Jesus
forevermore. Lying in wait to greet him were his twin babies he never met,
his mother Betty Upton Angel, his father William Hugh Angel and his father
in love Don Whitaker.

Dale leaves behind to celebrate his home going yet mourn the loss of the
huge void his departed earthly body are his soulmate and love of his life
for twenty-five years Katrina Whitaker Angel, the precious children their
union God chose to bless with and of whom he was extremely proud, Hanna
Elizabeth Angel, Harley Jean Angel and Haven LeeAnn Angel of Lawndale.

Dale is also survived by his brother whom he loved dearly and his family,
James David Angel, wife Angela and daughters Taylor Angel and Haley Hoyle
and spouse Chris, their children Lily and Landrey; brothers in love Brian
Whitaker and Wesley Whitaker of Casar and his children Lacy Sparks and
spouse Daniel and daughter Ella of Shelby, Skylar, Kelsey, and Sophie
Whitaker of Casar and mother in love Judy Whitaker of Lawndale, a
grandmother in love, Elsie Whitaker with whom when he visited would greet
her with "Hey Good Lookin". He will also be terribly missed by the family
pet, Banjo an English Blue Tick.

Dale worked numerous jobs in his life beginning with the city of Cherryville
as a young man. He also worked at Broughton Hospital where he would
jokingly tell people "I had a key" and at the North Carolina Department of
Transportation. Dale also volunteered his time and talent to the Life
Enrichment Center and Hospice Cleveland County.

Dale was called to preach in 1987 and surrendered to the call and educated
himself in the ministry at Fruitland Baptist Bible Institute and Gardner
Webb University. He followed God's call and accepted the pastorate at
Bristol Drive Baptist Church, Statesville, New Buffalo Baptist Church,
Grover and Westover Baptist Church, Kings Mountain.

He had numerous lifelong friends and was an avid cyclist, having cycled
across Switzerland and North Carolina. He loved travel and had the
privilege to preach from a boat on the Sea of Galilee to the passengers. He
loved hiking with his daughters and instilled in them a love of hard work
and "just do right". He had the honor and privilege of leading to the Lord
and baptizing all three of his children. His famous words during his
sermons were "I hope that one day my daughters can walk by my casket and say
our daddy loved God and his family." To Dale's Credit and mercy of Jesus
Christ this has come to be true.
