Following his military employment, Delbert worked at Klein-Schmidt as a teleservice technician where he was able to travel. He then went on to work at Snap-On Tools as an inspector and retired in 1987.
Delbert was a gentle soul who loved to tease you. He enjoyed woodworking and furniture making, bowling with his father and brothers, working on his home which he remodeled and put an addition on, refurbishing old cars, going to car shows, watching auto-racing, going out to eat, going to casinos, and was a fan of the Packers and Brewers.

He is preceded in death by his siblings, Russell (Susie) Wollert, Louis A. “Bud” Wollert, Lowell Wollert, and Edward Wollert; and a brother-in-law, Beryl Vogelman.
