TBS Badge of Mourning

Brothers and Sisters,

It is with deep sadness and grief that we write to inform you of the passing of our friend, Brother, Sister, and Headquarters staff member, Dale Croston. Dale passed away Friday, September 27, 2013, surrounded by family and friends, from complications following surgery. This is a very sad time for our Headquarters Family, and all the Brothers and Sisters that knew and loved Dale. Our hearts and thoughts are with his wife Lisa, member of the TBΣ Board of Trustees, his son Jared, and the rest of the Croston family.

Dale served KKΨ and TBΣ as the National Chapter and Colony Education Coordinator. He is a life member of the Alpha Chapter at Oklahoma State University, and an Honorary Member of the KKΨ National Chapter, Southwest District, TBΣ National Chapter and the TBΣ Alpha Chapter. Dale loved our organizations very much, as epitomized through his recognition as a recipient of the J. Lee Burke Student Achievement Award, Stanley G. Finck Memorial Award and the A. Frank Martin Award. As a student leader, Dale helped his chapter achieve the William A. Scroggs Founder’s Trophy and the J. Lee Burke Trophy for best Chapter Display. Dale exemplifies those qualities held most sacred by both KKΨ and TBΣ.

Funeral services will be held Sunnybrook Church in Stillwater, OK on Friday, October 4 at 3pm. In lieu of flowers, the family has asked that you donate in Dale’s honor to the Boy Scouts of America and the KKΨ / TBΣ Headquarters Landscaping Fund.

Headquarters will run limited hours the week of Sept. 30 and will be closed Friday, October 4. If you have an immediate need, please contact your Governor/ Counselor.

KKΨ National President
