Delroy Melvin Kiley was born on June 4, 1940 in Krain Township, Stearns County, MN to the late Thomas and Hattie (Jarnot) Kiley. He attended country school through the 8th grade. On July 2, 1960, he was united in marriage to Karel Dahl at Grace Lutheran Church in Albert Lea, MN. He worked for Nabisco in the Twin Cities until the couple purchased a farm near Pine Lake, MN in the mid 1960’s. The couple then moved to Upsala, MN in 1967 and continued to farm until the mid 1970’s when he began driving semi-trucks. He continued to drive truck until his retirement in 2014. Delroy was a kind and gentle man who cherished spending time with his family and friends. One of his favorite past-times was “spending his children’s inheritance” at auctions and at the casino! He also enjoyed camping, fishing, spending time outside and picking on his grandchildren and great-grandchildren. He was a member of Gethsemane Lutheran Church in Upsala.

Delroy is survived by his sons, Mike Kiley & wife, Janice (Stueve) of Upsala, MN and John Kiley & wife, Mary (Lechner), of Sauk Rapids, MN; brother, Richard “Dick” (Sharon) Kiley; six grandchildren; five and one half great-grandchildren; best friend, Sue Dierks; four step children; seven step-grandchildren; three step great grandchildren and many nieces and nephews.

He was preceded in death by his parents; wife, Karel; brother, Bob and an infant daughter.
