    Notes 
    • "Delbert was the first of seven children born to Emma Ida Allen and W illiam McElrea. He was twelve years old when the family
      moved to Washington. His father died in 1941 when Del was 15. Being the oldest he was assigned the father's role in the family
      which was rather stressful. Following high school Delbert worked for many years for Northwest Airlines in Yakima and Seattle. He
      had long had an ambition to own and operate a restaurant, and in 1960 he resigned his job with the airline and went into business for
      himself in Seattle. In May 1951 Delbert married Marian Shaw. The couple had two children, Joe Elwin and Maureen Estelle. Delbert
      was quite musical, playing and organ. He always felt a great responsibility for his Aunt Stella in Mound City, South Dakota. The
      family reports spending many vacations driving to South Dakota to look after Auntie.
      Del had just opened a new restaurant at the time of his death. Death came suddenly and unexpectedly while driving. Happily,
      no one was injured. The family were Baptists." [3]
