BELFAST - Joseph Arthur Delano was born at Waldo County General Hospital on April 17, 2001. The Lord took him home on September 27, 2015.
Joseph, more commonly known as "Joe", was a freshman at Belfast Area High School. Joe was an avid fisherman and hunter and would drive anything with a motor. He was an old soul, loved old country music, and would often be heard singing his favorites. Joe was a born again Christian, and frequently asked for everyone to sing Amazing Grace - his favorite hymn - at Sunday night sing alongs. The family takes comfort in his great faith and assurance that he was headed to sit in the lap of Jesus.
