Dale began his career in the insurance industry in January 1969, and has been affiliated with MassMutual Financial Group since April 1980. Dale retired from being the General Agent of Seymour & Associates/MassMutual Financial Group in April 2012. Dale is now focusing on his personal practice, and specializes in comprehensive planning for individuals and business owners, from insurance strategies to investment and retirement analysis and business succession planning.
Dale created SeaGate Benefits Administrators, Inc. in 1981 in response to requests from Seymour & Associates agents for local and knowledgeable third party administration of qualified retirement plans, health insurance and other ancillary group and individual health and welfare insurance products.
Dale resides with his wife, Phyllis, in Sylvania Township, Ohio. They have three grown children, two of which work in the family
businesses. They also have eight grandchildren (one in heaven), who take up a lot of their free time. Dale and Phyllis are also helping
to spread awareness for Epidermolysis Bullosa, a rare genetic skin condition that their 8th grandchild, Quinn Seymour, battled during
her short 8 months of life. They are currently working towards raising money to build a chapel inside Amplatz Children's Hospital at
the University of Minnesota (where Quinn lived). More information about Quinn and EB can be found at www.quinnscrusade.org.
