Quince Dale Hatch

Quince Dale Hatch (known as Dale or Q. Dale) was born on March 16, 1933 in McNary, Arizona and passed away on April 28, 2024 in Mesa, Arizona after suffering a cardiac arrest. He left this life peacefully surrounded by his family. He lived a life full of hard work and service to his family and to the Lord.

Dale grew up in Snowflake, Arizona, where he learned his strong work ethic through many chores and responsibilities at home, which he did dutifully his entire life. He had many adventures with his friends and brothers. He was a devoted son, and later, husband and father. Dale worked several jobs during the summers and school years to put himself through college, paying his own way through many years of schooling. He received a Bachelors of Science from Brigham Young University in 1960, and a Juris Doctorate from Arizona State University in 1972.

Between his years of schooling he also took time to serve his Country and church. Dale served the Lord faithfully as a dedicated missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Later Day Saints in the Northern States Mission. Upon returning from his mission he joined the Army where he received prestigious honors and was chosen for many specialized trainings.

He had many jobs throughout his his law career, but his last and longest was as a Deputy County Attorney for Maricopa County. It was during this time (specifically during a trial he was prosecuting) that he met his future eternal companion JoLene Aycock. They were married on November 29, 1980 for time and all eternity in the Mesa, Arizona temple. Dale and Jody were blessed with four beautiful daughters that he was extremely proud of, followed by four son in laws (he finally got some boys in the family!) and thirteen beautiful grandchildren.

Dale and Jody began their family in Tempe, moving to Gilbert in 1989 where they lived in the same home until his passing. They made many wonderful friends through their church and neighborhoods. He served in the Temple and had several wonderful callings in the church including his cherished service as a Prison minister every Saturday for years. Dale served faithfully as a husband and father and grandpa. He cherished each of his children and grandchildren, rejoicing in these eternal callings. They have truly been, and continue to be, the greatest joy in his life. He will be deeply missed by all.

Dale is preceded in death by his parents, Viva Gardner and Orlando Hatch, his siblings Larry, Velma, Flora, Janelle, and Lana, and his grandchildren Lynlee (Albrecht) and Chase and Cooper (Ellis). His only living brother is Hal Cloyd Hatch. He is also survived by his loving wife JoLene (Jody) Aycock Hatch and his daughters Heather (Joshua) Ellis, Joy (Aaron) Albrecht, Allesha (Cameron) Shumway, and Lindsey (Jared) Minson. He has ten living grandchildren, three in heaven, and one on the way.
