He attended Pleasant Plain School and graduated from Fairfield High School.
He was united in marriage to Kay Dianne Fitzwater on April 12, 1964, in First Baptist Church in Fairfield.
Delbert was employed with Northrup King/Syngenta in the seed stock division for 34 years and was an active member of the Washington County Model Railroad Club. He had a passion for being on his tractor plowing snow or tilling gardens.
Delbert was a big kid at heart, who had a quick wit and always had a joke to share. One of his greatest joys, besides his grandchildren, was his model railroad hobby, which he shared with everyone he met and even had an extensive display in his home.
Survivors include his wife Kay, of Washington; children, Michael Hoyle (Rhonda) of Hubbard, and Teresa Long (David) of Rubio; four grandchildren, Travis, Paige, Shannon Hoyle and Daniel Long; seven siblings, Paul Hoyle (Karen) of Fairfield, Gene Hoyle (Lori) of Washington, Glen Hoyle (Jane) of Washington, Marilyn Martin (Dick) of Brighton, Kathryn Newman (Dick) of Brighton, Donna Rugg (Beryl) of Wayland and Wayne Hoyle (Amy) of Crawfordsville.
He was preceded in death by his parents, sisters, Bertha Kleese and stillborn sister, Luella, and one brother, Larry.
