I was deeply saddened by news of Dels passing (from this site). Although we did not hang out in high school or after, his friendship was very important to me. In the troubled years of my youth, I was always running from my disfunctionAL family I felt imprisoned with.He and his family took me in for a few months. He made a difference in my life and I am still grateful. His dad took us hunting and his mom was up late into the night nursing me after a minor surgery. I hope the survivors of his family continue to be blessed by his life. If anyone knows the circumstances and date of his passing and surviving family, I would be very grateful to hear about it. Thank you Del for blessing my life.

What a nice memory you shared. I wish I could help you with your request. I, sadly can not. I relate to this, as I also was taken in by Renee Wilson's family. Sometimes it is nice too stop and Thank those in my life whom stepped up. I wish you health songs happiness. I don't remember you, but I wish I had. Take care, Theresa Mairs

I too Knew Del not so well not so less and am saddened also by this loss... It seems the older we get the more frequent it rolls down the hill at us gathering speed as the years pass... Prayers and blessings to Del's family and loved ones... And if I may for a moment comment on Trees' comment.. I too knew Renee Wilson oh so well or so I thought.. Years after high school we actually lived in a trail or park just down the street from each other... Either because of her free spirit or my ignorance I never realized the importance of her problem. (Sigh) but she was bold, loving , and like I said a spirit that was born to run like the wind.... Del...Renee... Miss ya both!

Craig, I lived down the street from you and remember you well. I have attended all four reunions and searched for you each time. I am glad you finally popped up. I new Del fairly well. But like most I lost track after school. I am not possitive but I believe he was killed in a car train accident out by Mt Home not all that many years after graduation.
