Jim was born July 7, 1948, the son of Melvin and Edvina Dahle, spending his first nights in a dresser drawer fit as a crib at the family home in Kensett. He was baptized and confirmed in the Lutheran faith. Kensett was an integral part of Jim’s life. Growing up as one of the Kensett Kids, he graduated from Northwood-Kensett High School with the class of 1966.

On June 1, 1968 Jim married Sonya Pacey in Northwood, IA and were blessed with two sons: Jason and Joel. Following their marriage, Jim enlisted into the United States Army, where he served a 20 year career. The family relocated several times, finding opportunity and adventure in their moves overseas and stateside. Whether they were in Italy, Germany or stateside in Florida, the family took in the experience. In 1999 Jim and Sonya returned to North Iowa, eventually making their home in Northwood. No matter how far away, Jim’s home was always Kensett, the Heart of Worth County. He cherished time with life long friends and family in Kensett, just like the good ol’ days.

Across 56 years of cherished memories and unwavering devotion, Jim and Sonya’s love only deepened. In their final days together, they renewed their vows, a true declaration that love conquers all barriers, even those of time itself.
