Dale Sherman Ginter

Dale Sherman Ginter, age 66, of Shelby, died Wednesday, June 26, 2019 at OhioHealth Grant Medical Center in Columbus due to complications during heart surgery.


Dale was born March 27, 1953 in Shelby to the late Junior E. and Bonnie G. (Barnhart) Ginter. He was a 1971 graduate of Shelby High School. Following school, Dale began a career at the Shelby Sales Book where he worked for 30 years. Dale then went to work for the Tuby for 10 years, retiring from ArcelorMittal in 2013.

Dale was a farmer and a jack of all trades. He enjoyed tinkering and had the skill and drive to fix, repair, or building anything that challenged him. Anything with wheels was his entertainment especially his ’69 Camaro, his Harley Davidson, his John Deere, or his Polaris RZR. He and his wife, Sandy, enjoyed traveling. They especially enjoyed wintering in Arizona for six months each year and taking the RZR into the mountains on day trips. His family, especially his grandson, Brock, meant everything to him.


Dale is survived by his wife, Sandra (Boggs) Ginter, whom he wed on July 31, 2001; daughter: Nicole (Billy) Hartge of Shelby; grandson: Brock; a sister: Diane (James) Wheeler of Shelby; mother-in-law: Neva Boggs of Oak Hill; brothers-in-law: Ron Carey of Shelby, Steven (Regina) Boggs, and Jerry (Michelle) Boggs both of Oak Hill; aunts and uncles: Tom Barnhart of MI, Ardelle (Floyd) Rietveld of Dayton, Barbara (Richard) Jordan of Shelby, Rev. Charles (Bonnie) Ginter of Bellville, Janet Ginter of Shelby, Kenny (Loretta) Ginter of Shelby, Danny (Cheryl) Ginter of AZ; and numerous nieces, nephews, cousins, other relatives, and friends. In additional to his parents, his sister, Dora Carey, preceded him in death.

    I was shocked and saddened, to hear of Dale’s death. I had him as a student, in Jr High School, and he was, also, a neighbor of mine, for a number of years. In school, he always had a smile, and was ready to work. He was the same as a neighbor. He was always ready, to lend a helping hand. He will be missed.
