Delbert was a strong and honorable man who dearly loved and cared for his family. He enjoyed the outdoors immensely, especially hunting and fishing. When he wasn’t hunting or fishing, he was cooking and baking. He enjoyed baking kolaches and making homemade noodles for chicken noodle soup. Delbert, also known as “Sam” by many, was always there to offer a helping hand to family and friends whenever needed. He will be greatly missed.
A celebration of life service will be held at a later date.
