Delmiro (Dely) Isidro Elizondo passed away on February 9, 2020 at his home in Spicewood, Texas. Dely was born in San Antonio, Texas on May 15, 1925 to Matilde and Aurelia Elizondo. He was the fourth of five children. Dely graduated from Central High School and went to St. Mary’s University.

Dely enlisted in the Navy on November 1, 1943 and was honorably discharged as a Radarman First Class on March 20, 1946.

Dely worked at his father’s meat market as a butcher growing up.

He enjoyed working with his hands, hunting, fishing, reading, and parties. We will especially remember him for his smile, laughter, and storytelling. He was always the life of the party!
