I have to go way back in time to recall images of Del. I was a youngster and I stayed with Elsie on the farm for part of the summer for several years. It was summer of delights,including hanging out at the gas station and collecting eggs. But I clearly remember seeing Del and his young wife (Elsie and Hank’s daughter) and his new truck (a dump truck). I remember an energetic, vibrant, and kind young man. I’m happy to hold that picture. Jean Weedman (formerly Reddemann)

We (Pastor Bill and Paulette Allwardt) have always lived far away in Springfield, Ill. during seminary and then Paris, Texas and Bay City, Michigan but I remember getting together at Ray and “Lyd” I remember “Del’s” smile and interest when we would visit.
I also remember the trucks and being very impressed as a kid.
I know it is always hard to let go, but celebrate the memories. Thank God for his strong faith. We know where we are going and someday we will join “Del” and all who have gone before us in faith. Blessings! Serve God by serving one another as he did.

Del was always nice to work with. Once at Our Shepard Lutheran church we were working on a parking lot. Del brought in his big equipment and made the task easy. I think Del had breakfast at George Webb’s just a few more time than me. Now he can just move bigger thinks around in heaven with his heavenly equipment. He will be missed. Bob Tennie
