  1. Saddened to hear of Del’s passing. We so enjoyed visiting with him when we spent time in the Shuswap and we have great memories of when he visited us in Newfoundland.
    We will always think of his big smile and will remember him fondly. Bev, we send our sincere sympathy to you, Delmer, and all of Del’s family. Big hugs.

  2. Heaven now has the ultimate ‘Body Man’! The Shuswap won’t be the same with another friend gone from Phyllis’s dinners. Thinking of you at this time Bev and Delmer. Love Phil and Sue.

  3. We too were sad to hear of Del’s passing. He was a GOOD man and a great supporter of water quality issues in our area. Our deepest condolences to Bev.
