My deepest sympathies Carol and family. I had some real good memories of you and Delbert. My neighbours in Estevan. We built our houses together and had some good laughs while doing so. He was a good guy and I’m very glad I knew him. Cherish the memories. 😘 From Dolores.

My deepest condolences to the family. Del and I were classmates in Class #5 at the SK Police College in 1976. We were a fun group back then, I'm saddened we never stayed in close touch. I admired his career as he progressed to eventually lead the Estevan PS as the Chief. Rest in eternal peace Del.

I have such great memories of Del and my time working with him and the Estevan PS. He played some good pranks on me that I still smile at when I think of them. Last fall I was able to visit with him and Carol in Saskatoon. So glad I did. Del had a presence whenever he walked in the room.... he was an excellent cop, but a great husband, father and person!!!

Rest In Peace Del
