Online condolences may be sent at Stephens Funeral Service – Redwood Valley Funeral Home is assisting the family with arrangements.

Delbert was born January 23, 1942 to George and Margaret Barningham in Braham, Minnesota. After graduating from high school in Braham, he enlisted in the Army and later served in the Army National Guard for over thirty years, proudly serving the country he loved.  In 1964, he met Paty Walks, and they wed later that year. From their love five children were born: Thomas, Roxanne, Michael, Kay Marie and Raymond. Delbert was a force of nature, determined to provide for his family and give them the life he felt they deserved. His family meant more to him than anything else in the world. He was unendingly proud of his wife Paty, his children and grandchildren; he always tried his best to support them.  Anyone who knew Delbert knew that he was the most loving father and husband a family could ask for.

He is survived by his wife Paty, children: Thomas (Tricia), Roxanne, Michael (Anna), Kay (Dan Fjeld), Raymond; grandchildren: Alexander, Katlynn, Marcus, Sean, George, Andrew and Angelica; and two great-grandchildren: Nora and Jaxon. Delbert was preceded in death by his parents George and Margaret; brothers: Don and Dale; sisters: Benice, Janice, Marjorie and Elsie.

Delbert will be greatly missed.
