Upon his wish, there will be no services at this time for Delbert Law, 79, of Roswell, who passed away at home Saturday, Nov. 20, 2010, after a long and courageous battle with cancer. Del was born Sept. 7, 1931, in Belleville, Mich., to Del Sr. and Pearl Law, who preceded him in death. He was raised and attended school in Belleville until he joined the Air Force in December 1947.
He served until December 1953. After leaving the Air Force he relocated to Cleveland, where he worked for Union Carbide as a shift supervisor until he was promoted, then transferred to open the first Union Carbide plant in Ashtabula, Ohio. He worked that job for many years until he had to retire due to medical reasons. He then became disabled, at which time he relocated to Roswell, in 1974. In 1978, he moved back to Belleville, to care for his ailing parents until their deaths.
He returned to Roswell in 1994, and remained until his passing. Delâ€™s favorite pastime was working with wood and working in his yard, but more than all other things, he enjoyed the peace he found in fishing and camping with his family by his side, no matter what state he was in. His outdoor spot of choice was the Bonita Mountains. Del is survived by three sons, four grandchildren, and six great-grandchildren: Jim Law, and wife, Connie and their family, Staff Sgt. Jim Law Jr., and wife, Stephanie, Savanna and Brittany Law, all of USAF Base in Turkey; Jeremy Law, and wife, Tanya, BreAnna and Bella Mae Law, all of Roswell; Tim Law, of Texas; Eric Law, Jessica Law Morales, and husband, Ermie, and Brittany and Alex Morales, all of McKinney, Texas; and Jeff Law, of Roswell. Del especially wanted to â€œThankâ€ Kymera, Mission Arch, and the entire Hospice/ Vista Care Staff as well as his favorite nurse, Anita Marriyo, who could always make his day brighter. Above all â€œThanks,â€ Del wanted his special caregiver and daughter -in-law, Connie Law, to know how much he loved her.
