In Memory of Longtime Y Supporter – Dale Dykema
Dale Dykema passed away on July 4, 2017 at the age of 87. He is remembered by the community as a great businessman, political activist, and philanthropist. To the Y, he was our dear friend and supporter, past board member, and someone we could count on year after year to provide funding that supports financial assistance scholarships for programs in Santa Ana.
Dale and his wife, Sandi, have been giving annual donations to the YMCA for over a decade, contributing over $40,000 to the organization. Their contributions make it possible for the Santa Ana Family YMCA to provide life-saving drowning prevention programs to low-income children and families, swim lessons, swim team, and soccer programs that for many would not be accessible without the help of the YMCA scholarship program. Dale also served as a member of our investment committee up until the time he passed away.
