Delond was a man of honesty, integrity, and a man of few words. He was an intelligent businessman and loved farming, livestock sales, and hard work. He was 'the man with the tractor,' helping neighbors remove many feet of snow. He liked watching sports on his big-screen, especially the Jazz and BYU.
