He served in the United States Army during the Vietnam War and is a Purple Heart recipient.
Following his military service, Delbert returned home to Sanborn, New York. In 1969 he embarked on a coast-to-coast trip on a “Lil” Indian mini-bike with a good friend and his family. They traveled from New York to San Francisco in two and a half weeks. In the years following the mini-bike trip, his children were born and he took his family on numerous trips across the U.S. in his motorhome.
He retired from a career as an Industrial Maintenance Mechanic at Nabisco in Niagara Falls, New York. Retirement took him down to Southern Florida to escape the snow and cold. He enjoyed dancing and tinkering on many projects.
