Donald Delkus Obituary

Donald E. Delkus, age 92, of O’Fallon, IL, born on July 21, 1931, in East St. Louis, IL, died on Thursday, December 14, 2023, at his residence.

Don was a son, brother, friend, nephew, uncle, husband, grandpa, and great grandpa, but most of all he was an honest, devoted, hardworking role model, who helped others and an absolute hero to his family.  Death leaves a heartache no one can heal; love leaves a memory no one can steal.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Adam and Mary, nee Lobin Delkus; his siblings, John Raeder, Martha Haenlein, Mary Evans, Ruth Delkus; his nephew, Johnny Evans; and his brother-in-law and dear friend, Jack Evans.

Donald is survived by his wife, Mary Ann Delkus, Nee Koehler; his children, Mary (Larry) Buchanan, Donna (Greg) Brutto, Debbie (Brad) Allsup, and Patty (Dan) England; grandchildren, Scott (Jessica) Buchanan, Kristina (Brenton) Kutz, Brittany (Jeremy) Wooten, Sean Buchanan, Shannon Buchanan, Josh England, Allison Brutto (Henry Mooney), Samantha (Tannar) Priem, Katie Buchanan, and Mary Marie Buchanan; and great grandchildren, Jordan, Brooke and Gage Buchanan, Eli and Ezra Wooten; Aria and Adley Kutz; Iggy and Ozzy England; Hudson Priem; and soon to be arriving, Kaiden Mooney.
