Dale P. Repass, 70, of Dubuque, passed away Thursday, July 11, 2019.

Friends may greet the family from 3 p.m. to 4:45 p.m. Wednesday, July 17, at Westminster Presbyterian Church, 2155 University Ave., Dubuque, where Memorial Services will be held at 5 p.m. Egelhof Siegert & Casper Funeral Home and Crematory, 2659 JFK Rd. is entrusted with arrangements.

Dale was born on September 3, 1948, in Waterloo, IA, the son of Don and Ruth (Sutherland) Repass. He earned his B.A. from Wartburg College in 1970 and his J.D. with Honors from Drake University Law School in 1974.

Dale devoted over forty years of experience to the financial services industry, having been involved in all phases of banking and trust services. He served in many positions, including senior lender, trust department manager, and President/CEO/Chairman of two Mercantile banks (now US Bank) located in Clinton and Dubuque. In 2001

Dale co-founded First Community Trust, N.A. where he served as Chairman and CEO for 14 years.
He was involved in a number of civic and charitable organizations. He served as a Commissioner on the Iowa Civil Rights Commission, as well as serving on the boards of Iowa Women Lead Change (IWLC), First Community Trust, N.A., The Finley Hospital, Dubuque VNA, and the Dubuque Regional Humane Society. He was also a member of the Bar Associations of Iowa, Dubuque County, and the American Bar Association.

Dale married his college sweetheart, Diane Rose Schalkhauser, on June 5, 1970, in Waterloo, and their wedding was officiated by Diane’s father, Rev. Erhard “Rusty” Schalkhauser. He enjoyed spending time with his family, traveling, fishing, golfing, and playing cards (with varying results in the last three categories!) Dale made sure to spend time every day playing with the beloved family Goldendoodle, Cricket.

Dale is survived by his loving wife of 49 years, Diane, of Asbury; two wonderful children, David (Teresa) Repass of Maryland, and Julie Repass of Paris, France; two step-grandchildren, Susana (David) Zaka and Alex Vazquez, both of Maryland; two sisters, Judy Smith (Dick) of Fairfield, IA, and Camille Power (Ed) of West Des Moines, IA; his brother-in-law, Jim (Joni) Schalkhauser of Lansing, MI; and his sister-in-law, Linda (Dick) Anderson of Traverse City, MI.

He was preceded in death by his parents.

Dale’s family extends a special thank you to the staff at UW Madison Hospitals for their care of Dale.

Memorials may be given to the Dubuque Rescue Mission, 398 Main St., Dubuque, IA, 52001, St. Stephen’s Food Pantry, 3145 Cedar Crest Ridge, Dubuque, IA 52003, or a charity of your choice.

Diane and family,
My wife Ann and I were very sorry to hear the news about Dale. I knew him from Dupaco's ties with FCT and from an occasional round of golf with him at Thunder Hills. He was a true gentleman and one of my favorite guys to spend time with. Our sympathy to you and family.

Dear Diane, My memories of the time that Dale and I spent at FNB hold a special spot in my the recall of my life. I can remember
his laugh to this day. I really did try to teach him to fish, and I think once when we were on the river he actually did land one ! While our paths separated, My time with Dale at First National Bank have stayed clear as a bell. My thoughts this day are with you and your family. I am so very sad for the loss of Dale, it would have been wonderful to have been able to see him once more and to share stories of our younger days.
