Deputy Marshal Henry Dale was shot and killed when he interrupted a robbery of a tavern at 119 East 79th Street in Chicago, Illinois.

Four men entered the tavern and announced a robbery. Deputy Marshal Dale shot and killed one of the subjects before being shot in the head and killed. The other three men fled the restaurant but were all apprehended. The leader of the robbery crew was the man who shot Deputy Marshal Dale. He was convicted of murder and several counts of armed robbery. He was subsequently sentenced to 50 to 70 years in prison.

Deputy Marshal Dale had served with the Unites States Marshals Service for only two weeks after retiring from the US Army. He was a veteran of the Korean War, during which time he was a prisoner of war. He was survived by his wife and three children.

I knew Henry while stationed at the Chicago detachment of the 204th Military Police Company, Ft Sheridan Illinois. He was one of the kindest men I have ever met. My sympathy to your family. Rest in peace my friend.
