Delmar dedicated a significant portion of his life to serving his country. He proudly served as a U.S. Army Veteran during the Korean Conflict. 

Outside of his professional life and military service, Delmar was an individual full of zest and enthusiasm for life. He had a passion for square dancing with his wife Peggy as part of the Butler Generals Square Dance Club. Together, they gracefully moved across the dance floor, bringing joy to all who witnessed their rhythmic motions. Additionally, Delmar found solace in camping.

"Bud" Stockdale and Lawrence Stockdale.

Though Delmar leaves behind many cherished memories with those who loved him most dearly, he is survived by numerous loved ones who will continue to hold him close to their hearts. His son, Delmar "Danny" (Lisa) Stockdale II of New Liberty, KY, stands as a testament to Delmar's loving and caring nature as a father. Delmar also leaves behind his sister Louise Fitzpatrick of Carrollton, KY.  Additionally, he is survived by his grandchildren Jenna Sue (Christopher) Burns and Jessica (Tyler) Lawson, who will forever carry on his legacy. The love he shared with his Great Grandchildren, a total of 5, will remain an everlasting gift.
