Honorable Dale E. Jaynes

Age 72, of Burdett, NY went to his heavenly home very peacefully with his family and friends by his side on October 1, 2019. He was born on December 10, 1946 to his parents, William (Bill) Jaynes and Alta (White) Jaynes who pre-deceased him, as well as his daughter, Kristina (Jaynes) Burke. Dale is survived by his loving and devoted wife of 50+ years, Linda (Hillerman) Jaynes of Burdett NY; sons, W. Scott Jaynes of Rochester NY, Sean Jaynes of Ballston Lake, NY, and son-in-law, Allan G. Burke of Burdett NY, (special friend Chrissy Wetmore); grandchildren, Alex Burke and Kristofer Burke of Burdett NY, Jaeden Jaynes and Isaac Jaynes of Ballston Lake NY; brothers-in-law, William Hillerman of Nassau, NY and Larry (Sue) Hillerman of Reno, NV; and nieces, nephews and cousins.

Dale served in the “Brown Water Navy” in Vietnam, his temporary assignment with Mobile Support Unit 2, until January of 1971, deploying the various Special Operations Units, Seal Teams, Special Forces, and Force Re-Con, etc., was most memorable to him. Because of this assignment, Dale received many awards and metals. In April of 1971, he became a member of the Burdett Fire Department, serving for 48 years and holding the offices of: Secretary, Treasurer, Lieutenant, Captain, Assistant Chief, Chief Deputy and Chief. Dale was a member of Schuyler County Volunteer Ambulance and served as a Paramedic for 22 years until 1992.

In August of 1973, Dale was appointed as a Charter Member of the Schuyler County Fire Investigation Unit by Emergency Management Director Harlow J. Bailey. Dale was still a member, holding the position of Chief Investigator, Pro-Board-Certified, Level Two, the highest level in NY State.

Dale dedicated his life to the service of others, putting their needs ahead of his own, over the years.
Dale was hired by International Salt in 1976, and worked for each company who later purchased the plant. He received his Journeyman Card as a Maintenance Welder-Pipefitter, a position he held up to his retirement in 2007.

In 1984 Dale joined the Boy Scouts of America to be in scouting with his sons, Scott and Sean As his sons advanced up thru the ranks so did Dale, achieving the positions of Asst. Scout Master, Asst. District Commissioner, Chapter Advisor for Order of the Arrow, and finally achieving the rank of Vigil Honor. While in Scouting in 1996 he was presented with a Bachelor of Commissioner Science, in 1997 achieved his Degree as Master of Commissioner Science and finally in 1998 received his Doctorate of Commissioner Science from the New York-Pennsylvania College of Commissioner Science. His crowning award was the joy he got while advising the young men as Ceremony Advisor in the Order of the Arrow TKaen DoD Lodge #30 BSA.

In May of 1998, Dale was appointed Hector Town Justice. In July 1998, he graduated from Basic Judicial School at SUNY Canton and continued to go to Judicial Schooling every year to present. He continued in the position of Justice of Hector to the present day.

In September of 2000, he was appointed by resolution of the Schuyler County Legislature, to the position of Deputy Fire Coordinator, a position he still holds today. He was also a member of the Odessa American Legion Post 676, since his discharge from active duty.

He was President of the Union Cemetery of Hector in Burdett for over 10 years. Dale was a member of the Reynoldsville United Methodist Church, where he served for many years as Church Council Chairman, as well as Trustee Chairman. Among all the titles that Dale has held, being called Papa or Grandpa was his most treasured. Those wishing, in lieu of flowers, may donate to the Burdett Fire Department, PO Box 238, Burdett, NY 14818 or the Reynoldsville United Methodist Church, 5092 State Route 227, Burdett, NY 14818.

Dale was a great man. He was my Scout Master when I was in Troop 52, way back when. I helped Sean on his Eagle Scout project. My sister and I grew up with their family and I always respected Dale. I pray his family finds peace in his memory.

The world is a lot less bright now. I worked and trained Ambulance with Dale. I was in the room with you LInda when you had your son and got to be the one that said "you have a boy" to Dale. I saw his first day at the Salt Plant. I have NEVER seen such zest for life as Dale. As it has been said, he is the one we try to set our standards to. I don't think it is possible for most of us to achieve. It would take at least ten people to make up for the loss of Dale. See you on th e other side Dale. All my love to the whole family and my time help heal this massive loss to this world.
