Delvin Jay Van Soest


May 4, 1950 - July 25, 2010



Delvin Jay Van Soest was born May 4, 1950 in Parkston, SD to Peter and Anna (Auwema) Van Soest. He grew up in Stickney where he attended school and graduated from high school in 1968. He then attended Mitchell VoTech earning a degree in building construction.  He was a carpenter for many years. Delvin drove the Stickney school bus and each student meant so much to him.  In more recent years he did maintenance work at the Mitchell Super 8 Motel and was caretaker for the Silver Ridge Cemetery at Stickney. Delvin proudly served as a volunteer fireman for the Stickney Fire Department for over 30 years.  He enjoyed raising a large garden, bowling, hunting and was an avid fan of sports activities around Stickney including the Stickney/Corsica baseball team.

He is survived by his mom, Anna Van Soest of Stickney, four sisters: Eileen Van Soest of Sioux Falls, Marjean Waldow and husband Arlin of Willow Lake, Betty Van Soest of White Lake and Janice Hettinger and husband Paul of White Lake, numerous nieces, nephews and great nieces and nephews.

He was preceded in death by his dad, a nephew, Jeffrey Waldow, a great nephew, Braden Bertsch and his maternal and paternal grandparents.



 Memorials are preferred to the Stickney Fire Department, the Aurora County Cancer Society or the Heart and Sole Cancer Fund of Mitchell.

Oh how Delvin will be missed. South Dakota will never mean the same to me again. We would go to South Dakota to see the relatives and that always was Delvin. He would never miss a time to see family. Feel the arms of Jesus surround your families. Love, Londa and Family

Our sympathies to Aunt Dolly, Eileen, Marjean, Betty, Janice and their families. Praying that you will know God's presence as He strengthens you...letting go of someone you love, even when you know he is now without pain and suffering and is loving heaven, is not easy to do. Know that Jesus sees your tears and understands your pain. Delvin's quiet presence will be missed. Praying for you all...greetings from Michigan. Pam & Larry Maat family.

Delvin 'Crusher" was a one of a kind guy and former neighbor. His struggles are over and may he rest in peace.

I worked with Delvin at Super 8 Motel in Mitchell several years ago. He was a very kind person, a little ornery sometimes--but in a good way!! Once he got to know you, look out!! He was fun to work with and would do anything for anyone. May his family and friends find comfort in memories of Delvin...

My brother waa a quiet guy with a big heart. He had many passions....hunting with his brothers in law and nephews, having a garden, bowling on his bowling league, following the local sports teams, being on the Stickney fire department, and driving the school bus.....the kids on his bus were very special to him. He loved his nieces and nephews and great neices and nephews and enjoyed playing with them and was proud of their accomplishments. He had a love for the town of Stickney and was willing to help out those who needed it and was especially a great son to my mom..........may he rest in peace. We will miss him.
