Spent some time with Delos at the 50th reunion.  We had several college acquaintances in common, but I didn't know him well at LAHS.  I learned that he and Margurite had formed a law firm in LA where I started my banking career.  We exchanged numbers and planned to meet the next time I was in town.  That never happened, which I regret.  Rest in peace, Delos!  My sincerest condolences to Margurite!

I am so sorry to hear about Delos. We were at LAHS and Stanford together. He was a great guy. I had lunch with him at the 50th, and we reminisced about blowing up the chem lab in summer school. I thought he Was the culprit, but it turned out I was wrong. We laughed together. My condolences to his wife and family.

Am deeply saddened by his passing.  Delos was an all-star on our little league team in 7th grade & he continued  playing the adult leagues all of his successful life. He was always such an upbeat and engaging friend.  Everyone seemed to be captivated by his good nature & interest in making life creative & fun. His absence will be felt within our tribe.

The only time I shared a classroom with Delos was my first year in Los Altos, in Mr. Hill's 8th-grade class at Covington.  His infectious good humor and smarts were on abundant display then.  With the passing of both Carolyn Somers and now Delos it feels like everything about that wonderful time is diminished. So very sad.

My high school friendship with Delos ended when we went our separate ways in college. After a hiatus of 50+ years he kindly contacted me to extended his sincere condolences following the death of my husband in 2017. Hearing from Delos and other LAHS ‘62 friends was comforting and appreciated after all those years. We had relevant conversations regarding life and mortality, both with levity and sobriety, both having current experience in opposite capacities. My heart went out to him and his caretaker and wife, Marguerite. I am saddened by his passing.

My sincerest condolences to Marguerite, his brother, sisters and dear friends.

“To laugh often and love much; to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children; to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends; to appreciate beauty and find the best in others; to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition; to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. 

This is to have succeeded.” -Ralph Waldo Emerson
