He graduated from Milroy High School, then served two years in the U.S. Army during the Korean War. After his discharge, he returned to Milroy. On December 28, 1957, he was united in marriage to Rose Boerjan at Holy Redeemer Catholic Church. The couple farmed and raised their family near Milroy. Although Delmar continued to help on the farm, he retired from active farming in 1980. He began a woodworking business where he built many rustic furnishings, tables, picture frames and other items. He enjoyed marketing these items at various craft shows and other places. Delmar had many interesting collections including animal traps and Winchester Tools and other items. He was a firearms instructor for 40 years. He was very active in his community. He was a lifelong member of the Knights of Columbus, 63 year member of the American Legion, Charter Member of the Milroy Lions Club and served on the City Council in Milroy for 25 years. He was also an avid deer hunter. The couple loved to travel, especially to Mexico in the winter. In 2018, Delmar and Rose moved to Heritage Pointe in Marshall. Delmar died on Sunday, January 19, 2020, at Heritage Pointe Senior Living Center in Marshall.
