Finally! He is with his wife in paradise! Just what he wanted years ago! This man has touched so many lifes for God, I was blessed to get to know him the little I did. I got to see him baptized in the river with his son and daughter in law and see his face beam with pride! I walked with him in a cancer walk in Mosinee with the whole family and again, saw the pride of family in his eyes. If you have ever gotten to meet Delmar, I have to believe you have been touched by God in some way. He was truely a example of a Godly man, husband, father, friend etc. I hope to meet you again one day Delmar, and spend eternity with you, if you like it or not. We can have a campfire in heaven! My sympathy to all who loved him and were touched by his life. We have lost a good man. Love Mugsie

I was very sad to learn of Del's passing. My husband Don and I were very fond of him. We were fortunate in getting to know him while Del and Don were residents at Rennes for many years. I will always treasure the generosity of his heart, with the gift of a lovely Bible he gave us! God bless all of the family, prayers are with you. His wish was granted - he lived to be 100 years of age!

Polly: I am sorry to hear of your father's passing. I know it's been a long time since 1962, and you may not even remember me, but I just wanted to express my sincere condolences to you and your family at this difficult time.

Newt & Gerana were two of the most gratious, loving people I've ever had the pleasure to know. They are finally together again.

Del will be greatly missed at Rennes Health Center. He was such a kind, compassionate, loving man, who never complained and always wanted to make sure who was taking care of him, was ok. He never wanted us to over work ourselves, and was always so greatful and appreciative. He always showed gratitude and love for every one of us! When he first came to Rennes, he gave all of us bibles, and that was so sweet. Glad he is at peace now, and we will miss him so much!
Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.

Del was my boss at the Medford location for Consolidated Badger Cooperative(Morning Glory) in 1963-64. His wife took care of our children when we were transferred to Medford that year. Both Del and his wife were wonderful people. We are sorry to hear of his passing but he lived a long and fruitful life. We will keep him in our thoughts and prayers. Margaret and Clyde Romenesko De Pere, Wi.

We recently gave a donation to the Gideon's in Del's name. We thank him for his many years of friendship, service to the Gideons, Lion's and Masonic Lodge. We are vacationing in Michigan and will be unable to attend the service on Thursday. Our thoughts and prayers will be with you.
