Condolences for the family of “Adelard “Del” Dubreuil”

Condolence from Harvey (Duffy) and Jane Duffany on December 31st, 2019 7:58 am

To Del’s family: My husband and I were saddened when we read of Del’s passing. We got to know him at Matulaitis Nursing Home. What an honor it was to know him! When I chatted with Del and asked him about his military service, he humbly told us about his service under General George Patton! Although he had difficulty seeing at the end of his life, whenever my husband would speak to him, he always knew who he was. We are both glad we got to chat with him on Christmas Day. My husband is a Vietnam veteran; from one veteran to another, God bless you, Del. Thank you for everything you did for our country.
