Memorial services for Cecil Dale Bollen, 69, of Marsden were held at 7 p.m. Tuesday, August 25 in the Chapel of Flanagan-Watts Funeral Home with Reverend Claud Williams officiating.

Interment will be held at a later date in the Criner Hills Cemetery, Carter County.

Born February 16, 1951 in Ardmore, the son of Cecil and Marie Goldsmith Bollen, he died Friday, August 21, 2020 at his home. A resident of Love County all of his life, he attended school at Meadowbrook and Turner Schools, graduating from Turner in 1969. He married Linda Dove Bollen in 1969 and they had two children, Sherry and Christy. He married Faye Raynes Bollen in 1992 and they made their home on the same land where he grew up. Dale was a plumber for most of his early career and then retired from Michelin after 25 years. He was one of the founding members of the Criner Hills Volunteer Fire Department. He was the handyman of the neighborhood and the one everyone turned to when they needed to know how to fix something. Dale was a music lover and was happiest when he had his guitar or bass in hand and was surrounded by family, friends, and fellow musicians.

Preceding him in death were his parents; granddaughter, Lexy Knopp; great-granddaughter, Teagan Prince; and brother-in-law, Larry McNeil.

Survivors include his wife, Faye of the home; children, Sherry Bollen Flanagan and husband Kevin of Greenville, Christy Bollen of Burleson, Texas, Bill Hobbs of Sayre, and Bart Hobbs and wife Mary of Lansing, Kansas; brother, Larry Bollen and wife Karen of Miami; sisters, Dorothy Hearell and husband Odis of Burneyville and Jan McNeil of Marsden; grandchildren, Tyler Prince and Dylan Prince, both of Ardmore, Phillip Hobbs of Lansing, Ashley Broussard and husband Nate of Kansas City, Missouri, and Crystin Perkins of Fox; great-grandchildren, Cooper Prince, Nora and Ethan Broussard, and Teagan George; and many other family and friends.

Serving as honorary bearers were Lester Butler, Lyndal Butler, Lance Butler, Tommy Farve, Mike Morrow, Steve Webb, and Donnie Hardcastle.

The family suggests contributions be made to Cross Timbers Hospice in Dale’s honor.
