Delbert's Story

Text size

Harrington - Delbert Lester Caler, 62, resident of Harrington, finished his earthly journey of the afternoon tide of February 14, 2018, doing what he loved and had since the age of 9, clamming. In 1996, Delbert started a wild animal butchering business, which in later years became a state tagging station too. Delbert loved to hunt. He enjoyed the success stories of other which replaced his own hunting as his business grew.
Delbert was married to the love of his life, Kathy Lynn (Perry) Caler, for twenty-two and a half years. He has left her broken-hearted.
Besides his wife he leaves behind two beautiful granddaughters, Breonna Skylynn and Raven Marie, two special grandsons, Caiden and Xander, and two step-grandchildren, Becca and Mark Muise; and one sister, Jannie Caler, and two brothers, Robert Caler and Eugene Caler; as well as a brother-in-law and wife, Stephen and Cathy Perry.
Delbert was predeceased by his son, Forrest Caler, his parents, Eugene and Genevieve Caler, and relatives.
Everyone that Delbert knew held a special place in his heart, especially Mark Strout who was like a brother and was often found at the butcher shop during season, holding Daisey-Delbert's constant companion, who is missing him terribly. And Jeffery Strout who has been like a son.
Everyone is invited to a Celebration of Life for Delbert on March 10, 2018, from 2-5 p.m. at the Harrington Grammar School. Refreshments will be served. Come tell Delbert stories and visit with his family. Arrangements are under the direction and care of Bragdon-Kelley Funeral Home, Milbridge.
