Dale Irby through the years


In this combination image made from photos courtesy of Dale Irby, Dale Irby is shown in a series of yearbook photos over the course of 40 years: from left, 1973, 1980, 1988, 1996, 2004 and 2012. Irby retired in 2013 as an elementary school physical education teacher in the Richardson school district, north of Dallas. The 63-year-old Garland resident says when he received his photo in his second year at the school he was embarrassed to discover he'd worn the same outfit as the first year. His wife dared him to wear it again the third year, then Irby thought five would be funny. He says, "After five pictures it was like, 'Why stop?'"
