Delbert grew up in Onion Lake, and was raised by his parents, Eric Lewis and Cecile Whitstone, he also lived on Quest Farm with his siblings and parents. Delbert was a little terrorizer to his brothers, sisters and cousins, and it was all either good, bad or ugly. Delbert liked to fish, trap, and to be with his nephews, teaching them things that would have to do with fixing cars or cleaning the house, but he also had a lot of fun with them. Delbert loved to cook, and eat like there was no end to it. Delbert was very well liked and making friends was easy and he would leave an impact on your life. Delbert worked on the highway for years before he made the choice to move to Edmonton, AB., to get to know family better. Delbert always had the knack for giving names to family members. For instance, Leland Ladoucer was Big Brother; and his niece, Brittany Whistone's family name was my "Fiji Neechie's". Delbert struggled with alcohol but when he decided to quit, he would. He was a humble, caring, and loving kinda guy. He would help you any way that he could. You had to meet Delbert to know what we are talking about. Delbert also has kids that he raised and called his own.
