Dale Wesley Goens was born September 8, 1916, in Plainville, Kansas and passed away July 18, 2005. Dale's father bought him a guitar when he was a teenager. Music would become a lifelong connection for Dale. In the 1930's Dale was playing professionally in a western swing band right here in Enid, Oklahoma. He and the band played on radio station KCRC in Enid (Still in business to this day) as well as the dance halls in the area. After WWII in Enid Dale built his own arch top guitar. Dale always had a love affair with wood. He also built model airplane gliders and flew them in competition. In 1949 Dale got an offer to work at Sandia Base in Albuquerque as he had worked on B-25 aircraft in Kansas City during the war. After 21 years at Sandia Base, he retired. With his love of wood, Dale developed a sideline business of making custom gunstocks for hunting rifles. Prior to his Sandia Base retirement his gun business had grown to such a point that he had to either pursue it full time or give up the business. Dale achieved a national and international reputation in fine custom American bolt rifles. Dale continued his gunstock making business until November of 2000.

I don't always drink beer, but when I do, I put on a dress, some lipstick and a wig and have a Bud Light.
