"It saddens me to say that God has called home one of his beautiful angels. Delbert Kleen has been a dear friend to this family as well as many others for many, many years! Anyone who has had the pleasure to meet Delbert knows what an honor it was to call him "friend.” He was a wonderful husband, stepfather and papa. He will be greatly missed!” –From the family
