After a hard fought battle, Delbert Olive, Sr., left this world on May 9, 2019.  He was born prematurely on March 19, 1948.  Against all odds, he survived and grew into a man of character, a man that loved everyone, especially his family.

Delbert also had many friends that he loved as family.

Visitation will be at Spry~Williams Funeral Home Sunday May 12 at 2:00 pm. with services to follow at 3:00 pm. Delbert and his family have requested that in lieu of flowers a donation be made in his name to Davita Dialysis, Dr. Hicks Blvd location.
