August 02, 2006

Daniel McTyeire Sale, a retired Montgomery Ward manager, died of cancer-related respiratory failure Saturday at Baltimore Washington Medical Center. The Pasadena resident was 80.

Born in Lakeland, Fla., he skipped his high school graduation and lied about his age to join the Coast Guard during World War II. He escorted naval vessels in the English Channel during the Normandy invasion in 1944.

After the war he earned a bachelor's degree in psychology from Florida Southern University and belonged to the Pi Kappa Phi fraternity.

He moved to Baltimore in 1961 as a manager of the old Montgomery Ward store on Washington Boulevard, and was later assigned to the store at Glen Burnie Mall. He retired in 1985, and then sold homes through the O'Conor Piper & Flynn office in Annapolis until 1995.

Mr. Sale was a member of the Kiwanis Club and enjoyed fishing, golf, bird watching and reading.

A memorial service will be held at 11 a.m. Aug. 19 at Stallings Funeral Home, 3111 Mountain Road, Pasadena.

Survivors include his wife of 56 years, the former Helen E. Knight; a son, Richard D. Sale of Tolland, Conn.; two daughters, Linda A. Dodson of Oakton, Va., and Marian E. Bellis of Newark, Del.; two brothers, Harold Sale of Lakeland, Fla., and Frances Sale of Jacksonville, Fla.; a sister, Elizabeth Ferguson of New Orleans; and five grandchildren.
