Delbert was born on January 18, 1930 in St. George Township to Frank and Clara (Balder) Winkelman. He graduated from Foley High School in 1947. He married Eleanor Regnier on April 25, 1950 at St. Lawrence Catholic Church in Duelm.Delbert worked various jobs such as driving taxi cab, Lakeland Bakery, and McGarry Bros on road construction before landing a job at the paper mill (St. Regis, Champion) in Sartell. In 1961 they purchased their farm in St. Augusta. He continued working shift work at the paper mill for 32 years until his retirement in 1989. After retiring, Delbert and Eleanor were able to spend their winters down south and spend much of their summer at their lake cabin on Round Lake. After giving up farming, they sold and moved to St. Cloud in 2003. Delbert was an avid sports fan, playing football and baseball in high school and Legion baseball. He was a great pitcher. He had a chance to sign with the Dodgers farm team, but he had to pass because it was financially impossible. Delbert loved to watch the Twins and Vikings.
