Since Del’s passing I have collected a bunch of great photos of Del from before I knew him. When I first met Del he must have been in his late 80s or early 90s and he always had quite a striking presence. It’s so amazing to see him so young in these photos. What a handsome man!
Here are some of my favorites.
