Dale Staudter, age 80, of St. Paris, OH passed away on Saturday, November 12, 2022 at 5:15 a.m. at Danbury Senior Living, Tipp City, OH.  

Born on October 18, 1942 in Dayton, OH, to the late Valentin and Josephine (Kress) Staudter.  On August 17, 1973 he married Mary Ann (Waldron) and they were married for 49 wonderful years.  Dale and Mary Ann collectively have spread much kindness and love throughout our community. 

Dale and Mary Ann’s children include Rebecca (Allen Brandon) Holbrook, Daniel Staudter, Joel (Kelly) Staudter, and Zach (Mary) Staudter.  Grandchildren: Alexander, Elizabeth, Allison, Damian, Abigail, Andrew, Juliana, Malia, and Josephine.  In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by a son, Danny Staudter, a sister Dolores Staudter, and a brother Donald Staudter.

He is also survived by brothers/sisters-in-law Patricia Staudter, John Waldron, Thomas (Cathy) Waldron, Patricia (Bill) Waldron, Eileen (William) Hanafin, Fran (Mike) Kowilick, Michael Waldron and many nieces and nephews.  

Dale was a proud graduate of Chaminade High School class of 1960. He was a member of Sacred Heart Catholic Church, St. Paris, OH.  He loved farming, cutting wood, story telling, taking golf cart rides, helping with Federation of Churches, serving on the board at the Caring Kitchen, supporting the Champaign County Democrats, and, most of all, sharing his infectious laughter if you had time to talk. He retired from General Motors (Inland Plant) in Vandalia.  Dale cherished every moment he spent with his family and friends but especially glowed with happiness when in the company of grandchildren.  Dale never met a stranger and loved attending all of his grandchildren's sporting events and activities.  Dale's contagious smile and roaring laughter will forever be missed in our lives, but we know he is at peace in the house of the Lord.
