He enjoyed the solitude of the woods early in the morning and a quiet day on the farm. He was a devoted father and grandfather, who enjoyed a laugh and a visit with his family. He was a member of the VFW #474, and had made a dedication of his life to Christ, becoming a Baptist by faith before going to his eternal home on January 31st, 2013 in Muskogee, OK. He will be missed by all who knew and loved him.
Delmar is preceded in death by his parents, and his four brothers and three sisters, Robert, Dillard, Denver, and Lester Bailey and Mary Bailey, Jessie Shankles, and Artie Thompson.
Delmar is fondly remembered by his only child, daughter, Rebecca Carey and husband Marlin of Hulbert, OK, and his three grandchildren, Nathan, Brittany, and Mariah Carey, as well as two beloved great grandchildren, Austin Carey and Melanie Carey . His memory lives on in his many nieces, nephews, cousins and a host of friends and loved ones.
