He spent 35+ years working as truck driver, as well as a mechanic.

Delvin was a motorcycle enthusiast. He loved spending time enjoying the open air as he traveled about on his motorcycles. He loved old hotrods and spent countless hours building and rebuilding them. Delvin was an avid fan of boxing. If a boxing match were on television, he would find it and watch with intensity. He also enjoyed going to the local coffee shops, where he and Vickie would visit with friends.
