August 13, 1946 ~ March 9, 2020 (age 73)


Clyde Dale Poling, of Morgantown, passed away on Monday, March 9, 2020 at Mon Health Medical Center. 

Dale was born on August 13, 1946 to the late Victor and Agnes (Boyles) Poling. 

He was a graduate of Morgantown High School, served in the West Virginia Army National Guard, was a Master Salesman at State Electronics, and also worked as a Real Estate Agent for Pat Stewart Realty. 

Dale was a faithful member of StoneBridge Baptist Church in Morgantown. He loved sharing the message of Jesus with everyone that he encountered, including through a weekly Bible study with his friends at Morgantown Unity Manor, where he resided before his death. Dale’s love for Christ was so deep that he even purchased a Honda Odyssey for the purpose of transporting people to weekly worship gatherings at StoneBridge. Dale never married, but was faithfully devoted to serving and caring for his parents before their death. His special riding buddy was his dog Sparky, whom he loved and cherished as a friend. 

Dale is survived by his sister, Marie Cordwell, and her husband Ed of Morgantown; nephew Victor Cordwell of Morgantown; niece Kimberly Cordwell and husband Mike David also of Morgantown; great niece Morgan (Cordwell) Austin and husband Hayden Austin; great nephew Skyler Cordwell; and great niece Emily Mayle. 

In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by a niece, Amy Cordwell.

A memorial service will be held at a later date due to Covid-19 at StoneBridge Baptist Church, 6510 Mall Rd., Morgantown. 

In lieu of flowers, memorial gifts can be made to StoneBridge Baptist Church, P.O. Box 1168, Morgantown, WV, 26507.
