My deepest and most sincere condolences to the entire family. Del was definitely one of the good ones. I and proud to have known him and able to call him a friend. He was the nicest, funniest and one of the most giving people that you could ever meet. I will cherish all the memories, including the drinks, laughter, food, golf games, cashing those winning tickets at the track, and yes, even getting tricked into eating turkey nuts.
Del’s devoted friendship was second to none, and for that, I am thankful to have known him.
I was unaware of Del’s passing until today. I worked with Del prior to his joining the Fire Department. I saw him occasionally throughout both our careers. He was a character, never a dull moment when Del was around. My condolences to the family.
