Delbert was a very private person. Once you got to know him, he was a friend for life. He loved the outdoors, he grew up camping and fishing with his mother in Washington state which carried over into his adult life taking our family camping and fishing. Delbert loved music and played the guitar by ear, he played the old songs and sang to our children as they grew up; Jesus Loves Me, Froggie Went a Courtin', You Are My Sunshine and country music. He was artistic and painted us many pictures.

Delbert is preceded in death by his parents; two brothers Harold and Ray Riddall and one nephew Jim Riddall.

Delbert is survived by his wife of 45 years, Helen Harris Riddall; special sister Dee Jacks and husband Vern; brother Blaine Riddall; son Darrin Riddall and wife Michelle of Wylie, TX; daughters Christina Mercer and Dave of Vancouver, WA and Renee Riddall Elliott. He is also survived by six grandchildren Michael, Shawn, Matthew and Melissa Mercer, Khristopher and Nathan Riddall; three great grandchildren Calvin and Boston Mercer and Allison Keller Mercer and many nieces and nephews.
