Daleroy was a phenomenal man. He Neverminded to help anyone even a stranger in need was a friend.  He feared nothing and was always the life of the party and stayed ready to party.  Daleroy’s love for fishing is what taught him how to be patient.  Fishing was a get away for him, he would sit out at the fish creek or the Ocean and even spend the night if he didn’t get a bite, he was not going home empty handed and fishing was his get away from the world.  He loved gambling, and playing any type of game that he thought he could beat you in from Dominoes, Solitaire, Poker he played them all and would read your hand quicker than you can.  He loved watching movies, martial arts in particular, and action movies. “ Shottas” is one we can all remember that he wore out for sure.
