Delmar Sailer, 77, of Stanton passed away Wednesday, April 28, 2021, at Sakakawea Medical Center, Hazen. Services will be held at 10:00 AM CDT, Monday, May 3, 2021, at Our Savior’s Lutheran Church, Stanton, with Pastor Dennis Ristvedt officiating. Burial will follow at Our Savior’s Lutheran Cemetery north of Stanton. Visitation will be one hour prior to the service at the church.
Delmar was born on July 9, 1943, at Hazen, ND, the 12th child of Jack and Lydia (Horning) Sailer. The family moved to a farm near Marion, ND in 1946 and raised their growing family there. Delmar married Karen McGuire on November 21, 1964 in Valley City, ND. Delmar loved visiting with friends and family. He enjoyed bowling, dancing, gardening and yard work—loved that green grass!
Delmar worked for neighboring farmers when just out of school, the Oahe dam and on several construction sites over the years and was assistant manager of two grain elevators. Then in 1973, he moved to Stanton where he purchased a motel and here he raised his children. I believe his last job as a 49er was running the electric train under the lake on the swing shift and loved every day he was there, before going into the trucking business as an owner/operator. Delmar retired in 2008.
He is survived by his wife, Karen; one daughter, Bobbi and special friend, Darin Bossert, Stanton; two sons, Del and Dallas of Stanton; five grandchildren, Kayla (John) Casson, Joseph and special friend, Bree Bixby, Derin, Jack and Nick; three great-grandchildren, Annabelle, Daxtyn and Brelyn; one brother, Marlyn Sailer; sisters, Mayda (Niles) Mueller, Yvonne (Ray) Klueber, Margie (LaVern) Schelske, Frances Zimmerman and Laura (Douglas) Anvik; sisters-in-law, Lavelle Anvik, Linda Sailer, Chris Sailer; numerous nieces and nephews.
Delmar was preceded in death by his parents; seven brothers, Erhardt, Arnold, Vernon, Clifford, Lawrence, Donald and Armond; two sisters, Verna Schaff and Irene Smith; one granddaughter, Jacklyn Dunaway.
