III and Terese Delcollo of Hockessin, Kevin J. and Shana Delcollo of Newark; his daughter, Lisa Marie Delcollo of Bear; his mother, Catherine Delcollo of Wilmington; his sister and brother-in-law, Catherine and Eric Engberg of Wilmington; his stepdaughters, Marie Lemmon and her husband, William Nau of Woodbridge, VA and Lisa Giobbe of Bear; and his nine grandchildren, Abigail, Alexandria, Dylan, Sadie, Vincent, Gavin, Nicola, Tyler and Dominic.
