Delbert Morris Harron, of Brook Park, passed away on Wednesday, August 29, 2012 at his home in Brook Park. He was 60 years old.
Delbert was born on November 19, 1951 in Saint Paul, Minnesota to parents Joseph and Jeannette (Walker) Harron. As a young child, the family moved to Colorado where Del attended Sterling and Merino Schools. In his teenage years, Del helped his father do scrap iron work. While in Colorado, Del met Judith Ann Yaraborough. The couple was united in marriage on August 28, 1969 in Salinas, California. The couple raised their three children Tammy Ann, Steve, and Ronnie in California. From 1969 to 1987, Del was a member of the Teamsters Union and worked as a Supervisor in the frozen foods Industry. In February of 1987, Judith passed away after battling cancer. Del and the kids moved to Grasston, Minnesota to be closer to family. Del worked odd jobs until 1989 when he began his career with Pentair Tech Products as a Fabricator. He continued to work until declining health forced him to retire in April of 2012.
Del was a hard worker, but loved to spend his free time with his sons working on hot rods and cars. He enjoyed collecting rare coins and was a huge Elvis fan. Del collected memorabilia and Elvis music in record, 8-track, tapes and CD form. Most of all, Del loved his family. He enjoyed many family dinners and breakfasts with his parents, siblings, and children. He will be dearly missed.
