Delmar James Eddie was born July 24, 1939, at Carroll, to Kenneth and Geneva (Stephens) Eddie. He attended Sun Shine Country School District #75 and graduated from Carroll High School in 1957. Delmar married Nyla Delozier Sept. 4, 1960, at St. John’s Lutheran Church, Randolph. The couple farmed near Carroll for many years. In 1983, they sold their dairy herd. For 20 years, Delmar loved his job planting trees for NRD.

His advice to his grandchildren was work hard and save your money so you don’t have to work so hard when you get old.

There was no other farm equipment in the world to him than John Deere.

Delmar enjoyed golfing, camping, being a fast pitch softball pitcher and going for rides. He loved having beverages and visiting with his friends and making new friends.

Delmar is survived by his wife, Nyla; children, Monica Carrol, Wayne, Brian Eddie, Coleridge, and Valerie (Rob) Hoffman, Plainview; ten grandchildren; three great-grandchildren; two sisters, Marlene Dahlkoetter, Carroll, and Vonnie (Vince) Meyer, Randolph; and nieces and nephews.

Delmar was preceded in death by his parents; son, Brad; granddaughter, Cara; and great-grandson, Kellyn.

Memorials can be directed to the Eddie family for later designation.
