Delvin was born to Arthur and Erna (Borth) Isaak on October 22, 1951, at Dodge.

He attended school at Halliday and later moved to Beulah where he graduated from high school. He was an outstanding athlete and received numerous awards for basketball and football.

Over the course of the years, he owned a liquor store in Shreveport, Louisiana. He loved working in casinos because he was a people person. Delvin was a jack of all trades – he could master any repair job of home, vehicle or motorcycle.

There was no prouder father than Delvin. He talked about his children frequently: how Greg was such a hard worker, Ben a whiz with electronics and he thought Stephanie was the most gorgeous girl he ever saw.

Among his interests were telling stories to others. He loved people, especially kids, and also animals – dogs in particular. He was also an avid car and motorcycle enthusiast. He truly enjoyed life.
