Dale Tikalsky, Jr., 47, of Scottsbluff, died of natural causes on Saturday, September 26, 2020 at Regional West Medical Center in Scottsbluff. His Celebration of Life will be held at Monument Bible Church on Wednesday, September 30, 2020 at 2:00 pm with Pastor Mike Clement officiating. Cremation has taken place and there will be no visitation. Dale’s family respectfully requests that in lieu of any flowers, memorials in his honor may be made in care of his family to be designated at a later time. Online condolences may be made by viewing Dale’s memorial page at Bridgman Funeral Home and Cremation Services in Scottsbluff are entrusted with arrangements.

Dale Lee Tikalsky, Jr. was born July 19, 1973 in O'Neill, Nebraska to Dale Tikalsky, Sr. and Mary (Hynes) Tikalsky. Dale graduated from Bayard High School in 1991. He married Erika Goldman on July 19, 1995 in Scottsbluff, Nebraska. To this union one son was born, Alexander.

After graduating, Dale worked at Western Sugar in the Ag Department for 23 years. Dale had many passions during his adult life which included collecting coins and hot wheels, but his true passion was collecting rocks. Dale spent time with friends collecting rocks in Utah, New Mexico, Arizona, Wyoming and several other areas. Dale spent much of his free time turning his findings into beautifully polished rocks. Those who have visited Dale at home know that his garage and driveway were dedicated to rocks and he loved to tell you all about them.

Anyone who knew Dale knew that nothing was more important to him than family. Dale will always be remembered as a kind and caring man who almost always had a smile on his face.

He is survived by his wife Erika Tikalsky; son Alexander Tikalsky; stepfather Gary Suhr, Sr. of Bayard, NE; brother Matt (Becky) Tikalsky of Lincoln, NE; sisters Jenny (Gregg) Witfoth of Lincoln, NE and Julie (Jeremy) Blake of Seward, NE; and many nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles, and cousins.

He was preceded in death by his father and mother.

Dale was such a kind and happy person. We always looked forward to seeing him at the Crawford Rock Swap
We will treasure the rocks we have bought and traded from him.
He always mentioned his son and how proud he was to be his Dad.
We hope good memories will comfort you.
The world lost a great man

We did not always see eye to eye. We had our good and bad times, but we were always there for each other. There will be always be a hole in my life and heart. Love you Dale!

I am so sorry to hear of Dales passing , Our thoughts and prayers are with the family.. I will always remember Dale by his smile and boisterous voice.. I still have 2 of the polished rocks in my home that he gave me when I was working at the rehaul office and Dale was a loader op and later a mechanic.. He was a great kid and will be missed .. May your memories come to comfort you in the days and week that lie ahead and may the Lords arms wrap around each of you as you continue on life's path.. Safe journey my friend till we meet again.

I only met Dale a couple of times when we crossed paths at the sandpit when we were there for a birthday party. We had a great conversation about rocks and he shared some of his polished ones with us. He had a very gentle, kind spirit. Im so sorry for you're loss.
