Delano graduated from Daniel Webster High School in 1970. Just three short years later, he married the love of his life, Vickie, on September 25th, 1973 in Tulsa. From their union, Felicia was born- their only daughter.

He dedicated his life to his Lord and Savior over 60 years ago at Mt. Olive Baptist Church in Tulsa. Delano was a very passionate man who enjoyed many things in life. One of his greatest joys was spending time with his grandchildren and great-grandchildren. He loved playing his guitar, often playing with his friends. He was a car fanatic and enjoyed building them, at the time of his passing he had a ’57 Chevy in his collection. Delano worked as a Master Tool Builder for McDonald Douglas (23 years) and Nordam (22 years).
