Delmas was a free spirit and played by his own rules. He did not need material processions to make him happy, just being outdoors and having his children and soulmate, Mary by his side, which was his freedom. Delmas was a humble man who possessed a caring and giving nature, he was the one that would stop if you were broke down on the side of the road, if he found you walking would offer you a ride, and many times would give you his last dollar.
