      A funeral service for Dale C. Dycus, 61, of Sealy, was held on Saturday, June 5 from the Immaculate Conception Catholic Church in Sealy with the Rev. Octavio Muguerza and the Rev. David DuBose co-celebrating the funeral mass and rite of committal.  Interment was at Immaculate Conception Cemetery in Sealy.  Pallbearers for the service were Joe Pattison, Emil Kocurek, John Bird, Billy Schavrda, Tommy Smaistrla and Fred Kugel.  Honorary pallbearers were Wayne Schomburg, Frank Vecera, Leroy Zapalac, Melvin Pechacek, Sidney Levine, Billy Schaffner, Rolf Krueger and Dr. Victor Morris.
      Dale Charles Dycus was born in Sealy, the only son of Charlie and Agnes (Orsak) Dycus, but had seven adoring sisters: Marie, Delores, Susie, Eva, Patsy, Kathy and Jackie.  He was raised in Sealy, graduated from Sealy High School in 1960, and attended Blinn Junior College and Sam Houston State University.  On Feb. 13, 1965, Dale and the former Carla McClung were married with ceremony held in Houston.  Dale was very active in the community; CCD, the JC's, the local bank board, a Republican Party chairperson, Rotary Club, and the Sealy ISD School Board were some of which he was a member.  He was born and raised Catholic and loved his faith.  Dale was never afraid to take chances during his lifetime.  He owned an accounting business in Sealy for 20 years and operated a meat market and grocery in Wallis for 14 years before health problems forced him to retire.  A fighter till the end, Dale loved being around people and enjoyed making folks laugh.  A master at getting on with the business of life, he never felt sorry for himself and always put his best foot forward.  When talking to his doctors, he would never dwell on discouraging news.  Through it all, he kept a wonderful attitude, always thinking of others even in his time of crisis.  Whenever he received bad news from the doctors he would lighten the mood or craftily change the subject.  He kept a wonderful front and was a great inspiration to all of us.  He was a wonderful husband, loving father of his daughter and two sons, and an adoring grandfather of three.  David loved his parents and sisters; he always honored his parents.  He would frequently call his ailing mom, even while he struggled with his own medical hurdles.  Dale C. Dycus died Thursday, June 3 in Katy.
      He is survived by his wife, daughter, Jennifer Janczak and husband Jay of Angleton; sons, Chuck Dycus and wife Tina of Katy, Jonah Dycus of Houston; sisters, Marie Pattison and husband Joe of Pattison, Susie Schavrda and husband Billy of Sealy, Patsy Dycus of Sealy, Jackie Smaistrla and husband Tommy of Sealy, Dolores Kocurek of Brenham, Eva Bird and husband John of Sealy, Kathy Kugel and husband Fred of Brenham; grandchildren, Madison Dycus, Chase and Julia Janczak; and a number of nieces and nephews.
      He was preceded in death by his parents.
      Funeral services were under the direction of Knesek Family Funeral Chapel of Sealy.
