MPMA Remembers Dale Greenwald
Tuesday, June 27, 2017
It is with great sadness that the MPMA shares the news that Dale Greenwald, former president of Cass Screw Machine Products, passed away on June 23, at the age of 78.
Dale was President of the MPMA from 1979 - 1980 and served on the Board of Directors for more than 20 years. Dale cared passionately for the MPMA, its members and our industry. Dale started his career at Cass Screw in 1957 as a janitor. In the late 1970s, Dale, along with Marvin and Lorraine Wise, purchased Cass Screw from the Cass family. After Lorraine’s passing and Marvin’s retirement in 1995, Dale became president. He remained president until 2015, when he retired.
Dale was the emcee of MPMA’s annual Golden Gloves event, which he supported whole-heartedly for nearly 35 years, singing the national anthem, handing out prizes and sharing a joke or two on stage each year. Dale also will be remembered for playing his guitar and his deep country voice, often singing Johnny Cash songs by the campfire at Grand View events or at the annual President’s Appreciation Dinners. And for many of us, Dale will be remembered for his big smile and hugs, which warmed every room he entered.
There will be a visitation from 4:00 – 7:00 p.m. Thursday, June 29, 2017, at Evans Nordby, 6000 Brooklyn Boulevard, Brooklyn Center. A Celebration of Dale’s life will be held at 10:00 a.m. on Wednesday, July 5, at Peace Lutheran Church, 4512 France Ave., N., Robbinsdale.
The full notice and obituary can be located here.
Dale’s contributions to the MPMA and to the manufacturing industry were innumerable. MPMA will be setting up a tribute memorial in Dale’s honor in the future. Please watch for further details.
