Del gave me my incountry checkride in Feb 68 introducing me to being shot at. We flew several missions together until I went over to the guns. He will be missed by many. Smooth air to you, Del, God now has a great SIP in charge.

Like some of the others, I didn't know half of your accomplishments, but always knew that you would always meet any challenge with courage and giving your best, however great the task. As we trained as helicopter pilots at Ft Campbell to deploy the 61st AHC to Vietnam, we all recognized the best of the best. Del, you were right there at the top. As Operations Officer for the unit, I knew that you would not give up whatever the risk to yourself. You are what I think of when I recall the Army Aviation motto "Above the Best". I'm looking forward to being together again someday to catch up on the years since we last spoke.
I know your family and friends will miss you and your smile.

I knew Del well. The one guy that was special to all of us. True to his nature after many days and nights and twice as many drinks and even though on occasion he would let a "little" war story slip out. I had no idea of the magnitude of his heroics. I salute you sir and I will see you later. Pappy

Our hearts are so heavy with grief...without you here with us.

It is said that:

"You have never lived until you've almost died

For those that fight for it, life has a flavor the protected with never know."

Del, you had that "flavor" for life and truly lived life to the fullest! Our lives are all so much richer because you were part of them.

Del, I know you are with George now sharing a martini and listening to Jimmy Buffett songs and sharing stories of all your "conquests." That thought brings a big smile to my face. I know George is so proud of the way you took care of me. I am eternally grateful for your friendship and the pleasure of your company.

I will always love and miss you!
