Dell attended and graduated from Paseo High School class of 1973. Dell then went on to work for various companies which included: Pappa’s Chevrolet, Southeast High School and Home Room Furniture. Dell was the family comedian a long side his sister Jackie. Dell had a unique relationship with all of us. Dell was straight­forward, at times too honest, and just down right honorary. Dell also knew this, so to make things lighter so you weren’t mad at him he would make you laugh. Because of this most knew that you just better except him and love him as he was because he wasn’t going to change. Dell loved listening to music, his favorite artist were Tupac and Isaac Hayes. Dell also enjoyed cooking and he loved his hot sauce on his oxtails and pig feet. Ultimately he made the best chicken noodle soup. Dell loved sports and betting on the games. If you made a bet with Dell you better had got it in writing or had a witness, because if he decided he wasn’t going to pay he would deny the bet was ever made. When you saw Dell you also saw his long time best friend of many years Michael Smith. They were two peas in a pod, like Bubba and Forrest Gump. Dell will forever be missed by everyone who knew and loved him for him. With faith we should keep in mind in Dell’s case his death was healing and we should be comforted that he suffers no more.
