July 15, 1962 – May 28, 2021

It is with great sorrow we announce the passing of our beloved son Delbert Wayne Thideman. Delbert lost his battle with cancer on May 28, 2021 at age 58. He is survived by his parents Lloyd and Linda Thideman, wife Alison and children Maughin and Konner along with his mother-in-law Greta Wright. Also survived by his sisters Shirley and Fern Morin, Tracey and Hugh Whalen, Shelley and Norm Vekved and Erin Thideman. Sister-in-law Suzanne and Dennis Siemens and Rosalind and Barry Schimelfenig. Along with many Aunts, Uncles, nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.

Delbert was born in Quesnel, BC on July 15, 1962, but he grew up in Wells till the age of 12 when the family moved to Quesnel, where he attended Barlow Creek Elementary, QJS and graduated Correlieu in 1981. Delbert loved the outdoors and worked until his illness in the bush with Amboy logging for 37 years.

Delbert was an avid fly fisherman and could be found in his boat on any local lake on any given weekend or holidays. Delbert gained the title as the “Chironomid King”

of Quesnel. Delbert will be missed greatly by his flyfishing family Kurt, Dom, Rob, Bob, Gordy, Windy, Ed and many more. Also by his childhood friend Bill Carter who took him for drives to share a many good chat about younger days in Wells. Delbert lost his long brave battle with cancer, but not without leaving his mark on the world he was known for, his big bright smile, sense of humour, joy in talking, sharing a joke or two and was a great friend to all that met him.

Predeceased most recently by his cousin Kelly Schoepp who was like a brother to him. Both sets of grandparents Jack and Margaret Lust, Mildred and Maurice Thideman, as well as

many Aunts, Uncles and cousins. His father-in-law Rob Wright and brother-in-law Steve Wright.

Delbert faced his cancer with the resilience and fortitude that inspired all that knew him, he even found a way to offer support to those close to him with a little quote

“It is what it is”.

“We watch him leaver our shores and lament as

he disappears over the horizon, but our of sight there are those gathered on a far offshore rejoicing shouting here he comes.” Obituary
