Delbert Blose was born Dec. 12, 1917 and died April 6, 2017. He lived the life he wanted. He lived 99 years hoping to make 100. He was the husband to two wives, Helen Mae Blose and Margaret Merwin Blose. He was the father to one fine son, Larry R. Blose, who was his care giver. Delbert insisted he be at his home in his last years when he took his final breath. He was uncle to three nieces, Deborah Levin, Patricia Blose, and Michelle Johnston. He was grandfather to Paula L. Blose and Christine R. (John) Kuczler. Delbert was great-grandfather to Capt Jedd (Nikki) Ferris, US Army, and Brenna R. Ferris. He was great uncle to Amanda, Butchie, and Matthew and great-great uncle to Joey, David, Trent, and Devin.
Delbert worked at US Steel, Irvin Works, as a shearman. He retired to Sigel in 1972 and stayed on his beloved mountain, never venturing further than Brookville for most of his days. For many years he shared the mountain with his brother, Joe, and sister-in-law, Frieda. There were many happy moments when we all gathered for hunting season and told stories while the women and kids waited to see who had gotten the bear or deer. He was the oldest of five sons and one daughter. He was the last surviving member of his family.
