Dale Cooley August 17, 1944 – February 18, 2021

Dale Cooley died Thursday, February 18, at home under the care of hospice and with family by his side. He had lived with stage 4 cancer for several years. 

Dale will always be remembered for his deep commitment to his program of recovery. He celebrated 38 years August 27, and insisted on facing the challenges of cancer with his sobriety intact. In the midst of all that he undertook with his illness, he maintained his sense of humor, his commitment to helping others, and his optimism born of his own experience, strength, and hope.

Dale grew up in Wyoming in a Mormon family, leaving home to move to Denver and then later to Los Angeles. His career was working in the banking business, something he always said he enjoyed, except for having to wear a tie to work every day.

In retirement in the 1990s, he moved to Palm Springs where he continued his involvement at Sunny Dunes and at other meetings in the Valley. For several years he worked during the tax season at H & R Block, right up to three days before he died.

Dale is survived by a host of friends that grew up around him in cities around the country. He is also survived by a brother from St. George, Utah, a niece and two nephews, one of which, Jason, lived with Dale in Cathedral City.

An outdoor memorial occasion is planned for sometime in late April or early May.


Our 7th Tradition states:“Every A.A. group ought to be fully self-supporting, declining outside contributions.”

As you can imagine, AA contributions are now falling off sharply. Our meeting room may be empty, but the rent still needs to be paid. Please consider making a (regular) contribution to our Sunny Dunes Group.

Alcoholics Anonymous is a fellowship of men and women who share their experience, strength and hope with each other that they may solve their common problem and help others to recover from alcoholism. The only requirement for membership is a desire to stop drinking. There are no dues or fees for AA membership; we are self-supporting through our own contributions. AA is not allied with any sect, denomination, politics, organization or institution; does not wish to engage in any controversy, neither endorses nor opposes any causes. Our primary purpose is to stay sober and help other alcoholics to achieve sobriety.
