Delbert went to be with the Lord on Saturday, July 11, 2015 after difficulties with congestive heart failure. He was 87 years of age. His strong faith helped him cope and not complain, but courageously endure through difficult times until God called him home.  Family was always his first priority. His wife, children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren meant the world to him. During Delbert's youth,  he learned the skill of carpentry and worked for a short time in Topeka as a carpenter.

Delbert was instrumental in bringing rural water to Republic County and served on the board of development for Republic County Recreation Association bringing a golf course to Belleville with grass greens. Delbert owned and operated the Clarence L Gile Insurance Agency with his wife Norma for the past 33 years. Farming was in his blood.  He grew up helping his Dad and then took over the farming operation planting and raising the crops later passing on the farming responsibilities to his son, Ron. Delbert was united in marriage to Norma Greenslade on April 20, 1947 at First Methodist Church of Topeka and to this union four children were born: Phyllis, Ron, Jane Ann, and Carrie.
