Deloy spent every day of his life living the philosophy, "do unto others as you would have them do unto you". He did so with his whole heart. He helped, supported, forgave and found no flaws in those he loved.
He was a quiet soul whose dedication to his children ran deep. He was quick to help, without questions or judgement. His sacrifices were many and knew no bounds. He worked hard every day to make sure everyone was taken care of, before taking care of himself; never asking anything in return, yet silently teaching us all to do the same.
He always had a smile on his face, a joke on his lips, laughter in his belly and true love in his heart. To know him was to know a truly great man. He will be missed by all who had the honor to know him.
May our love lift you into heaven to the arms of your waiting family. It's ok, rest now Daddy, Grandma has you now.
