Delton Dore', a native and lifelong resident of New Iberia, passed away Monday, May 11, 2020 at the age of 76.

Delton was a devoted husband, Godfather, and servant of the Lord. He was married to Donna Delahoussaye for 43 years. Although they never had children of their own, their home was always filled with nieces, nephews, and neighborhood kids. He was known to many as "Parrain".

In recent years he loved playing slots at Cypress Bayou and eating at Janes Seafood every Saturday night. His dog, Charlie, was spoiled rotten by him and was always by his side. Delton also had an artistic side, and painted ceramics with Donna on weekends in the 80's. He was a loyal employee of Red Fox and Ace Machine for many years, and worked 6 days a week well into his 70's.

Those left to cherish his memory are his sister, Annie Lou Mestayer; his nieces and nephews who loved him dearly, Christina Bass Vice, Erica Bass, Dawn Mestayer, David Delahoussaye, Jamie Delahoussaye and Brien Delahoussaye; and his beloved and faithful poodle, Charlie.

He was preceded in death by his wife, Donna Faye Delahoussaye Dore', his parents, Wally and Duclecia "Chun" Dore'; nephew, Ramsey Delahoussaye; and his sisters and brothers, Inez Bass, Elsie Fremin, Eldridge Broussard and Zan Broussard.

Private services will be celebrated for Delton and he will be laid to rest with his wife at Nativity of Our Lady Mausoleum.

Pallbearers are David, Jamie and Brien Delahoussaye, Erica Bass and Ryan Vice. Honorary pallbearers are Johnny Cruz and Phillip Trahan, Sr.

The family would like to extend their gratitude to Landmark of Acadiana for being by his side during these strange times when family couldn't be there, and a huge thank you to his lifelong friends, Johnny and Lorita Cruz, who were faithful friends to Delton and Donna. We are forever grateful to you all.

ADD A MEMORY
Johnny & Lorita Cruz

May 13, 2020

For many years we have been blessed to be a part of "Dore's" extended family. He shared his love, and generosity with us is countless ways. He was a faithful friend to us & another father figure to our children John & Ebony who he spoiled as his own. His heart was a treasure chest from which flowed kindness, compassion & selfless service. He once said that God put him on earth to take care of others. He certainly lived up to that divine calling. May God bless him now with well deserved rest & the everlasting joy of being reunited with Donna whom he missed so much. With great love & fond memories,
Johnny, Lorita, John & Ebony
