McCall Gardens

Delbert was born in Vegreville, Alberta, one of five children. He was predeceased by parents, Violet and Fred; sister, Lila Cox and brother, Howard East. He is survived by his sister, Ruby Law and family of Quesnel, BC;  sister, Hazel Bendall (Dave) and family of Victoria, BC and Auntie, Lola Wagar of Viking, Alberta. He moved with his family to Victoria in 1942.

Delbert worked for many years at the DVA hospital. He liked gardening and always shared his bounty with his neighbours. He loved cats and country western music.  Del could often be found with his guitar singing at Willows beach and entertaining at care facilities and legions.

Special thanks to the caregivers at Selkirk Place, 3rd and 6th floor. You were so kind and caring to him.

We’ll miss your songs, Delbert, keep on singing.

Private family service. Thanks to the staff of McCall’s and Royal Oak Burial Park, you were such a help.

Condolences may be offered to the family below.

    I was very sorry to read of Delbert’s passing. Growing up on Scott Street, across from the Easts, I knew Delbert well. I fondly remember Delbert and Hazel playing guitar and singing on the front porch. Rest in peace Delbert.

    “May the peace of God rest with your family at this time. Strength will come from heart felt prayers to our God above, He knows coping with the loss of a loved one is difficult for us, He put eternity into our hearts (Ecclesiastes 3:11). I pray then, the message of Hope in His Holy Word will guide and comfort you today and in the days ahead, you have my sympathy for your loss.” Acts 24:15, Acts 17:27
