Dale Charles Bartholomew
Dale Bartholomew went to be with the Lord on July 21, 2023. He was born in Milwaukee, WI on April 7, 1930 and lived in Eau Claire, WI until he went to the University of Wisconsin receiving a degree in Metallurgical Engineering. He worked in numerous locations as an Engineer including Pittsburgh, PA and San Diego, CA before moving to the Tri-Cities in 1976. When he moved to Richland he became Manager of Engineering at Atlantic Richfield Company, later becoming Director of Operations at Rockwell Hanford.
Dale loved Jesus will all his heart, and believed that life was all about loving others and helping them in any way possible. This led him to many volunteer activities including The United Way, Kiwanis, The Gideons International, Association of Quality and Participation (AQP), and many others. In retirement, he started his own consulting company where he mentored leaders of several local businesses.
Dale is survived by his wife of over 40 years Kathleen; son Scott and his wife Tina, daughter Jill Maas and her husband Dean; grandchildren Jason Maas (Erin), and Nicole Neufeld (Jeremy); and new great-grandson Elijah Neufeld.
Dale was a gentle, kind, and loving man and will be sorely missed by all who were blessed to have known him.

Remember him during Hanford days. He was well looked up too. Smart guy…
Sincere condolences to Dale’s family… I first met Dale many, many years ago, when he helped to charter the local chapter of the Association for Quality & Participation (AQP). I also knew him from working at Hanford. He was such a kind and caring man – always there and putting in extra effort to assist others, to help our AQP chapter grow and be successful over the years. I have so many fond memories of times spent with Dale and other chapter members at AQP meetings and conferences in several cities across the country, and how Dale always volunteered to help out wherever needed. I feel truly blessed to have known Dale and to be able to count him as one of my good friends. May your many great memories of times spent together, and the love of family and friends comfort you.
Dale’s friendly smile and kind words are missed. He had a heart of gold.
