Dale Delka


February 22, 2024

Dale Leroy Delka was born on a fence post and hatched in Red Cloud, Nebraska, Feb. 14, 1947. Son of Harold and Olive Delka, Dale was the seventh son and one of 11 children, raised in an honest (somewhat), hardwork- ing (sometimes), and loving (always) family. He attended school in Guide Rock, Nebraska, where he still holds the record for minutes riding the bench, thanks to Coach Holtmeier. Dale was so appreciative of the record setting bench time Coach Holtmeier gave him, Dale later showed his great appreciation by marrying Coach Holtmeier's niece, Diane Joyce Holtmeier (more to come later).
