The 63-year-old was a miller at the Lassonde Pappas factory, according to his obituary.

“He will be remembered for his years of expertise and strong work ethic,” reads the obituary. “He hardly ever missed a day at work and was proud of his job.”

In addition to his time at Lassonde Pappas, the second largest producer of private label juice drinks, Devilli is known as “an avid outdoorsman and handyman.”

‘Of his countless hobbies, he perfected archery, fishing and gardening; the latter would grow a wide variety of fruits and vegetables each summer.

‘Dale was seen as the rock in the surf. He was their protector, their leader and their home.’
