Dale was born June 5th, 1946 in Sioux City, the son of Louis and Bessie Geraldine (Van Syoc) Peterson. He graduated from Lawton High School and attended Palmer College of Chiropractic. Dale married Connie Johnson on December 10th, 1967 in Davenport, Iowa.
Dale owned and operated Peterson Chiropractic in Sioux City before moving his practice to Springfield, Missouri. There he began a printing business which he continued to own and operate. He greatly enjoyed interacting with customers. The couple eventually returned to Sioux City where Dale continued his business and practice. With work being Dale’s passion he never “officially” retired.
