November 10, 1932May 29, 2021

Robert A. DeLintt, Sr. "Bob" passed away peacefully on May 29, 2021 at age 88. Bob departed this life in the comfort of his home, surrounded by his loving wife Hortense and his three sons. Bob was a loving son, brother, husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather, and friend to many.

Bob was born in Yuma, Arizona to Alfredo and Lucinda DeLintt. He attended Immaculate Conception Elementary School and graduated from Yuma Union High School in 1952. He attended Arizona State Teacher’s College and while in school, he was drafted and later served in the U.S. Army. After being honorably discharged in 1955, he married the love of his life, Hortense Juarez, in Flagstaff. Together they were blessed with four sons: Robert Jr., Paul, Thomas, and Daniel. Bob cherished his daughters-in-law Leticia and Lydia, his grandchildren David, Daniel II, Robert Thomas, Nathan, Jesus, Aryelle, Tim, and his great-granddaughter Albanee.

Bob obtained a Bachelor’s degree from Northern Arizona University and a Master's degree in teaching from the University of Arizona, concentrating in Physical Education and Industrial Arts. He began his teaching career in 1958 at 4th Avenue Junior High School and continued teaching in 1966 at R.P. Woodard Jr. High School. During his career, he was a Physical Education Coordinator and Vice Principal at Woodard Jr. High School until retiring in 1989. Bob later came out of retirement where he successfully implemented a disciplinary program for the San Pasqual School District.

Throughout his life, Bob was an active member of his church and community. He was a life-long member of the Immaculate Conception Parish, where he served as a lay eucharistic minister. In addition, he was a proud cursillista and a member of the Knights of Columbus. Bob had a passion for woodworking and spent time in his shop creating furniture for family, friends, and organizations in need. He enjoyed golfing, fishing, hunting and continued to maintain a deep love of sports. Eventually, he combined his love of carpentry and sports to create his own set of golf clubs.

Bob was preceded in death by his parents Alfredo and Lucinda DeLintt, sister Cecilia Lute and son Thomas DeLintt.

My deepest sympathy to Tensi, Brother Bobby and the rest of the family. You and your family are in my prayers. I didn’t know Coach for very long but in the short time I did he was the nicest person. I loved his smile. He was always so happy. That is a testament to the love of his God and family. He will be greatly missed. Sorry I can’t be there with you but know that you are in my thoughts and prayers. Sending lots of hugs and love from East Chicago, Indiana.

Bob was a Grandpa to me and my brother. I will always cherish how Bob and Tensie opened their hearts to us. He was a warm, kind, and generous man. One of his most charming qualities, was the way he made people smile, even on their bad days.

With love,

My favorite memories of my grand father were all the fishing trips we went on in the trailer. We would park near a stream and we would fish for rainbow trout. At such a young age, he would have me up early and ready to fish. I remember being so excited! It was always him, my father, and me. Also all the times we spent in flagstaff. I have so many great memories of my grand father. He will never be forgotten and always be loved.

Thank you Tata,
David

Tata,

Thank you for welcoming me into your home with open arms. Although short, my time knowing you left an impact on my heart. Seeing you interact with Paul, Bobby, and David explained a lot! David is so goofy and now I see where he gets it from. I wish we had more time together but I am so happy and honored to be a part of this family.

Love,
Jennifer

I can't remember a time that we didn't have a good laugh when were talking ,whether it was about sports or something that happened in one of our classes. He was always so upbeat.
I am one of the fortunate people who is still enjoying some of his woodworking that he created and installed in my home many years ago.
Tensie,
My thoughts and prayers go out to you and the rest of your family.

My Nino Bob would pinch my cheeks, and give me a big hug. He'd say "Whaddya say there Luscious?!" Then he'd give me a raspberry on my cheek. Everytime.... and eveytime I'd crack up laughing. We love you Nino Bob!

Mr. D was always kind and giving. He always treated me like a fifth son and part of the family. My most memorable memory is when I was working in Hawaii in my mid twenty’s and came upon a group of kids singing in Waikiki and it was the Yuma High Choirlairs. The Delintt’s were one of the chaperones for the group. I was very surprised seeing people from Yuma let alone the Delintt’s. We ended up playing a round of golf in Kailua the next day. He loved playing golf. The Perez family offers our most sincere and deepest heart felt condolences to his entire family and friends. RIP Mr. D.

When I first met Bob I was in elementary school. My friends and I used to call him "Turkey Legs'. He was a good sport and used to joke with us girls. Fast forward, I never dreamed my sister would marry his son and Bob, Tensy and boys would be incorporated into our family. He had a way of making you feel welcomed and was always joking about something. I will truly miss him in our family events. He has a room in God's house. Tensy and family, I send my deepest condolences and love your way. - Love Patty, Mario and family.
