When he sold his Hamm’s Beer distributorship, he worked as head of maintenance at Bethany Nursing Home for many years.

He loved to pilot his plane around the farm after he came back from the war. Del continued to garden and raise vegetables with Olive in Alexandria. They enjoyed ballroom dancing on the weekends. He liked making trips to Denver, CO to see his son, Todd along with his wife Diana and his granddaughter Haley.
