Dale Van Dorp "The Voice of Dearborn"

Dearborn has lost a legend. It is with a heavy heart that we inform you of the passing of Dale Van Dorp "The Voice of Dearborn".  Dale died Sunday evening at 10:30 pm after a long bout with cancer.
One of our area's greatest performers Dale was a charter member of the Dearborn Theatre Hall of Fame and Dearborn Area Theatre Association.
To most Dearborn residents Dale was most recognized as "The Voice of Dearborn", Dale would MC many city events and anyone that has ever been to Dearborn Homecoming would recognize his deep welcoming voice. For 34 years Dale would inform of us about upcoming acts at Stage B, remind us kids to head to the Police Command Post if we got lost, and count down to a resounding "Happy Homecoming Dearborn!" before another amazing fireworks display. Homecoming will never be the same without Dale's voice echoing across Ford Field.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to Dale's family and friends.
Dale Van Dorp (1952 - 2015)
