Portland Tribune and Community Newspapers - Doing good deeds one pint at a time 8/27/12 9:24 AM
by: REVIEW PHOTO: JORDY BYRD - Dale has given more than 31 gallons of blood in almost 50 years of donating.Doing good deeds one pint at a time
Published on Wednesday, August 22, 2012 | Written by Jordy Byrd |
Kenneth Dale has donated 31 gallons of blood
His father had recently passed away. Kenneth “Ken” Dale, now 68, remembers his father donating blood when he was a child. During World War II, he even donated twice in one week. His father led by example.
He inspired Dale, and soon another man — another generous man — would inspire him to donate blood, a lot of blood. It was 1964. Dale was 20 years old. Because he was younger than 21, he needed a signed consent note from his mother to donate blood.
A young man on staff at the Portland Red Cross drove Dale in his red and white Chevy Impala all the way from the Ross Island Bridge to Lake Oswego and back so Dale’s mother could sign the consent release.
“The guy just gave me a ride, but he had a major impact on me,” Dale said, sitting in the shade and waiting to donate blood at the New Life Church. “In doing so, he told me how valuable each pint is.”
Last Saturday, Dale donated his 250th pint — just more than 31 gallons — of blood to the Red Cross. It’s quite the accomplishment for this long-time Lake Oswego and West Linn resident. But like most good deeds, his lifetime of donating has gone mostly unnoticed.
Dale’s father moved to Lake Oswego in 1923. Back then, Dale said, the Oswego Lake Country Club golf course was a dairy. His father loaded cement trucks and always told his son he was “too young for World War I and too old for World War II.”
Dale was born in 1944. He said he went to school when there was only one schoolhouse in town and rode the first school bus in 1950. Next month, Dale will be back at the dairy turned golf course for his 50th reunion from Lake Oswego High School.
He went to St. Olaf College in Minnesota and started donating blood regularly as a freshman. He joined the United States Air Force in 1966 and became a missile launch officer.
“At first I thought I couldn’t donate blood in the Air Force,” he said. “Then I found out you just couldn’t do it 24-hours
before a mission.”
So Dale donated the maximum amount of blood possible — five times a year. He was in the military just shy of six years. He moved back to Lake Oswego in 1972 and then to West Linn in 1992.
Today, he works as a part-time insurance inspector in West Linn. He donates the maximum six times a year or once every eight weeks. He said the Red Cross used to give donors cards with the names and faces of people his donation helped.
He used to carry one such card in his pocket. He has since lost it, but Dale said the photo was of “a little kid with leukemia, the cutest little kid in the world.” Mentioning the card still makes him teary. Dale said he donates blood for the obvious reasons: altruism, a free physical six times a year and free cookies at the end.
“It’s such a simple thing to do and it has such a great benefit,” he said. “Every unit typically helps three people.”
Dale has donated consistently for almost 50 years. He says eminent death is the only thing that will keep him from
donating. Death is the only thing that will keep him from eating raisin oatmeal cookies and drinking apple juice once every eight weeks in churches and blood drives and grocery stores throughout the West Linn and Lake Oswego area.
He acknowledges his accomplishment, and like his father before him, Dale hopes to lead by example.
“It’s so easy to do to help other people,” Dale said. “The pain is incidental, and it’s knowing in your heart you’re doing
something right — giving back, making things better than you found them.”

My Workout: Writer/publisher makes it a point to do something physical every day
Published: Tuesday, October 12, 2010, 4:54 PM Updated: Tuesday, October 12, 2010, 5:02 PM
Who: Randall Stickrod, 66, Portland; 6 feet, 1 inch, 212 pounds
Workout: A writer and publisher, Stickrod also is a science buff with a degree in physics. He does something physical every day. Every other day he bench-presses 225 pounds during an intense 30-minute weight workout. After hitting all the major muscle groups, he moves on to a gymnastics routine. He uses rings and bars to work on flexibility, control and core strength. On alternate days he runs. "Never more than a mile or two," he says, "but at a pretty good pace." He doesn't believe much more than that is really necessary for optimum fitness, but for good measure he also hikes, climbs and plays basketball.
Feedback: He says he's always been exercise- and nutrition-conscious and as a result, "I can't think of anything I could do at 26 that I can't do at 66. I believe strength is a critical defense against aging." He also believes that exercise trumps diet; that a regular workout will make up for a number of diet evils but that it doesn't necessarily work the other way around.
Move it or lose it: Stickrod is co-author, with Stanford Medical School's Dr. Walter Bortz II, of the recently published "The Roadmap to 100 -- The Breakthrough Science of Living a Long and Healthy Life." His mantra, as stated in the book, is "Move! Move whatever is movable. Rejoice in your gift of movement. Walk. Run. Fidget. Put your joints to work. Jump (when was the last time you jumped?). Bend. Stretch. Throw your arms over your head. Swim. Play ball. Any kind of ball."
Nutrition: He loves to cook. He's the cook of the house in addition to doing the planning and grocery shopping. Fruits and vegetables are a major part of his diet, along with fish and fowl. He eats red meat only occasionally. Breakfast is usually an egg, toast, juice and fruit. For lunch he grazes on cheese and crackers, nuts, the odd cookie. Dinner always includes a glass of wine (usually red) and something green. He consumes no soda or fast food but has a notorious sweet tooth. "Not many evenings pass without serious chocolate," he says, "and a really good cinnamon roll is a sensual pleasure." Supplements, on the other hand, are mostly a waste, he says. "In Defense of Food," by Michael Pollan, tops his list of recommended reading.
Carol (McMonagle) Ellis and her husband Duane Ellis were involved in the "Fifty For Five New Orleans Trip".
In August, 2010 Rebuilding Together South Sound had the chance to be part of something big. It has been 5 years since Hurricane Katrina devastated the city of New Orleans. In many neighborhoods, the need is still critical, but last month, 50 families received help that will get them back in their homes.
A volunteer team from Rebuilding Together South Sound traveled to New Orleans from August 24-29 to participate in Fifty for Five, a work week commemorating the 5th anniversary of Hurricane Katrina. Our wonderful volunteers took on two houses in the Gentilly neighborhood of New Orleans. Our team braved the sweltering Louisiana heat and torrential downpours to accomplish as much as they could in 4 days of work. One house received a fresh paint job and a new fence, and another house needed to be entirely re-framed to ensure that it is structurally sound.
Volunteers included: Carol Ellis is a board member and spends her time helping our House Selection Committee. Duane Ellis from D.R. Ellis, LLC is a wonderful first-time house captain.
It takes a very devoted volunteer to take 6 days out of their busy schedule and travel across the country to participate in a week of hard work, in addition to all the amazing help they give us normally. But 6 of our wonderful volunteers stepped up and did just that.
