Delbert developed a strong work ethic growing up on a farm. He graduated from Spring Valley high school in 1969 and went on to serve in the US Army as a mechanic and was a very proud Vietnam Veteran.
He earned numerous medals in the service and after being honorably discharged, returned home where he worked at Summit Cheese Factory and United Gear and Assembly before retiring. He bowled on leagues and rode snowmobile for many years. He enjoyed fishing, riding his ATV, and socializing with his many friends.
Del was married to Sandra (Lamm) Kephart formerly of Elmwood, WI; they later divorced.
Del is survived by brothers Orville (Elizabeth) of Carrollton, GA and Neil of Menomonie, WI. He is also survived by many nieces, nephews, cousins, other relatives and friends.

brother & sister-in-law: Marvin (Pat) Kindschy.
Delbert was a generous man who would lend a hand or almost anything else he owned. He had a youthful approach to living his life. His veteran pride and patriotism were always on display.
