    Was Dale Robertson part Indian ? I wonder due to his birth in OK and his Indian medallion in the photo.

      Dale Robertson himself said that he had Cherokee blood, saying he was their West Coast Distributor! I was born in ’59 during the middle of Wells Fargo, but I never watched him until last year (2017). He was a kind and wonderful actor and man, kinda sweet and mischievous at the same time. He liked to play a bad guy who becomes good by the end. Even Jim Hardie said he’d blow up his own grandma for a hundred dollars! Live on, Dale. I remember your sweet voice.

    I was sad to hear that Dale Robertson was now in a wheel chair. I heard about this from someone at a dental office he was in not too long ago. I will always remember how cordial he was to me when I heard his voice at a pancake house many years ago. I was introduced to him and that just made my century!! I have always loved his look and his beautiful voice. Loved watching movies and shows with him in even as a child. Awesome guy.

    Sorry to hear Dale is ill, hope he gets better. Yes I’ve been a fan of Dale’s for years, watched Tales of Wells Fargo, Iron Horse, also have the movie Sitting Bull, for which he starred. Also have a g-g-g-son of a horse he owned Rebel Cause. Also love his kind voice, Oklahoma accent, my mom was born in Oilton, Okla., but raised in Mo. Thank you for letting me comment. Give Dale a big hug and a wish of wellness for me.

    Hello, just wanted to let everyone know that Dale has moved from Oklahoma to California. I no longer have a contact address for him. Really sorry too. The last visit I had with him in the nursing home in OKC was once of the best. He sat and remenised about all the old days when he was still acting. What a visit. I will miss him greatly. Thanks Dale for all the wonderful memories!!

    Thank you everyone for your comments. I have copied them all and will send them to Dale the next time I write to him. I am sure that he is delighted to be in his new home with his wife. David, Dale does have some wonderful stories doesn’t he?

  14. Curt Wheeler says:

    Years ago, I saw and really enjoyed the movie, “City of Bad Men” (maybe around 10-15 years ago?). I then was curious and got on the internet and found the website of Mr. Robertson and sent a “hello” email and, to my surprise, got a very nice email back. I wish Mr. Robertson and his wife the very very best of luck. Curtis Wheeler

  15. Lamar Robinson says:

    I saw many of his movies and was one of my favorite western stars. My sister had a huge crush on him and sent for his picture. She was thrilled when she got it. Happy Birthday to a real gentleman & actor.

  16. Michael Vaughan says:

    Your old show, Wells Fargo is now on COZI TV and I find it more enjoyable then when I was a kid. I am glad that God has blessed you with a long life and a great family. I wish you well.

  17. Nan says:

    I absolutely loved Dale Robertson when I was young. He still has a special place in my heart, even though I’m 69 now. I named my horse Jubilee, after Dale’s horse on Tales of Wells Fargo, and had a bridle just like his. I’m sorry he had to leave his beloved Oklahoma! Time just won’t stand still for anyone, alas.

    Hey everyone just wanted to let you know that my dear friend Dale Robertson passed away this morning at the age of 89 yrs of age. Dale was a great friend and I will miss him dearly. I got a phone call from another friend of Dale’s this morning letting me know of his passing. If anyone would like to call my number is 405-589-0443. Keep his family in your prayers this Feb. 26th 2013

  19. Gretchen Lathrop says:

    Sorry to hear of Dale Robertson’s passing. He was one of my favorite actors. Sometimes it seems that they could live forever, but reality sets in and you read their obituary on line, newspaper, etc. May God comfort his family at this time of sorrow. Gretchen Lathrop

  20. Thomas H. Nienburg Sr. says:

    My Dad called him “Left Hand Draw” & immitated his wave while walking away. Love to see his shows again.

  21. Jeannine Audcent says:

    Thank you everyone for your comments which I will post to Dale’s wife later on when she has more time to appreciate them.

  22. David Hayes says:

    This message is for Jeannine Audcent, Jeannine if you talk with Dale wife Susan, tell her I am David Hayes from Oklahoma, I am in a wheelchair and used to visit Dale when he was in the nursing home in Oklahoma City. I have always loved Dale and he was a good friend. Please tell Susan that I would love to have something of Dales if she still has anything. I know that last May they had an auction and sold alot of stuff but I did not get to attend the auction. Please give her my number which is 405-589-0443. I would really appreciate it very much. Thanks!

  23. Jeannine Audcent says:

    David, Some folks are sending me sympathy cards so that I can post them on to Susan. I will enclose your message with them. Don’t expect any quick answers though, as this will take some time. And, in fact, you may not get an answer unless Susan has also met you! Some of the cards will be posted from the USA to me in the UK. Hence it will take some time before I can forward them to Susan. I doubt very much that she has anything but the most precious things that she knew Dale would want kept. Some of the auction items are being sold on Ebay now. Look for the Bing Crosby and Frank Sinatra golf badges!

  24. Richard Wike says:

    I was saddened to hear of Dale’s passing in the British Times paper. I and my brothers always looked forward to seeing Dale in Wells Fargo every Saturday on TV all those years ago. They don’t make TV like that any more!
