Brenham Banner-Press, March 21, 2009:

Delmus John "DJ" Brandt was born April 11, 1922 at home in Bellville, the son of Emil and Martha Lueckemeyer Brandt. Delmus was baptized on Aug. 20, 1922, and was confirmed at the Saint John Lutheran Church in Bellville where he would later marry Evelyn Langberg on Nov. 11, 1944.

Delmus grew up in the Ives Creek Community and attended the Ives Creek School. He worked on the family farm and cotton gin which his father owned. He enlisted in the United States Army Air Corps during World War II and was honorably discharged.

In 1943, he began working for the Humble Oil and Refining Company, which later became Exxon Company U.S.A. Delmus was affectionately know as "Pete" to his many friends and co-workers in the oilfield. He was a loyal and dedicated Exxon employee and retired after 40 years of service.

Delmus enjoyed farming, ranching, and selling feed for Nutrena Feeds. His favorite hobbies were traveling, playing dominoes, and barbecuing chicken for his family and friends. Throughout the years, Delmus especially found joy and contentment on his John Deere tractors whether it be shredding, discing, or planting. He was a member of the Saint John's Lutheran Church, Men in Mission and Church Council, Austin County Farm Bureau, American Legion, and Cochran and Bellville School Boards for 12 years. Delmus passed away March 19, 2009 in Bellville at the age of 86.
