Vanden Brink, Dale Warren  
Dale Warren Vanden Brink, MD July 7, 1926 - July 26, 2015 Happy family man, caring physician, and passionate volunteer, Dale Vanden Brink was born in Holland, Michigan to Bernard and Gertrude Vanden Brink. The day after his graduation from high school, Dale joined the Navy and later served as a proud corpsman in the Marines. A graduate of Hope College and Northwestern University School of Medicine, he served his internship and residency at Cook County Hospital in Chicago, Illinois. A Fellow of the Academy of Family Practice, Dale practiced in Sullivan, Illinois and Torrance, California, spending 45 years serving others. Following his retirement he spent several years working with the Sioux Indians on their reservations. He became a great supporter of the program sponsored by the Bureau of Indian Affairs and the AMA, spending time each year on a reservation in Eagle Butte, South Dakota. A friend of DePauw University, Dale had the opportunity to serve on their health team in the early 1990's during a month-long service trip to El Salvador. Working with the students, as well as the citizens of El Salvador, changed his life and during the next few years he was able to share his thoughts and experiences with a variety of school children. The most important experience in Dale's life was fathering his four children, Mark (Melody), Eric (Janet), Kurt (Barbara) and Kris. They were the love of his life, and although he had limited time to spend with them, he made every moment count. Along with his wife of almost 60 years, Ellen (Little), their children were their greatest accomplishment. Dale also adored his grandchildren, Brian Little Vanden Brink (who preceded him in death), Melissa Reedy, Ashley Stinson, Jeffrey Probus, Jason Probus, Jessica McQuilling, Andrew Vanden Brink and Ashleigh Vanden Brink.
