During his service, Del received training as an air conditioning / refrigeration tech.

After his honorary discharge from the military, he went on to trade school to work in the air conditioning / refrigeration industry. Del owned and operated his business in Southern California for about 20 years.
In the late 1970s, Del moved to Bend and continued working as a technician. He retired from the industry around 1995. About two years ago, he moved to Baker City.

Del loved to work on projects around the house. He was a good handyman and could fix just about anything. While living in Bend, he removed two houses from complete shambles to beautiful homes.
