After farming they moved to Milan in 1981 and resided there until March of 2017.

Delbert enjoyed the outdoors, including trapping, hunting and fishing. He also played dartball. During the early years of retirement Alma and Delbert enjoyed traveling and gardening. Together they enjoyed playing cards with friends and spending time with very close friends, Arlette and Clarence Molthen. He also was a member of Bethlehem Lutheran Church in Milan.
