Obituary: Jeffrey Blaine Delsart
March 13, 1960 – March 28, 2019
Jeffrey Blaine Delsart, 59, of Sturgeon Bay died at Door County Medical Center.
He was born in Sturgeon Bay to Raymond and Ellen Alice (Rex) Delsart. Jeff graduated from Sevastopol High School in 1978 and continued his studies at Northeastern Wisconsin Technical College, where he took diesel classes with his brothers, Roger, Randall and Todd, and took business classes later on.
He grew up helping on the family farm and continued operating the farm with his brother Todd in recent years. Jeff initially worked in the shipyards for Bay Ship Building Company and also for Peterson Builders for a shorter time. There he was part of the quality-control testing team.
Most people knew Jeff, though, as an electrician. He was proud to be a master electrician and a state-certified licensed electrician for more than 30 years. You knew Jeff was there to help when you saw the big, white Delsart Electric van or the big, green truck in the driveway. He was so accommodating to the schedules of all the families who called upon him for help with their electrical needs, and he was also thinking of solutions to potential problems that could arise over time.
Jeff was baptized and confirmed at St. John Evangelical Lutheran Church in Valmy. He was a former member of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBW) while working in the shipyards. After the completion of his diesel classes, Jeff was always fixing his trucks and working on his tractors on the farm.
He will be missed by his 13 siblings, Dianne (Gregory) Bojko, Carol Grimstad, Dennis (Nancy) Delsart, Sally (William) Kostka, Nancy (special friend Thomas Tice) Delsart, Roger Delsart, Patti (special friend Robert Florence) Delsart, Randall Delsart, Jill (Mark) Cote, Sharon Moellendorf, Todd (Deng ZiFeng) Delsart, Joan Delsart, and Tammy Barton; aunts and uncles; nieces and nephews; other relatives; and his loyal customers (and friends).
Jeff was preceded in death by his parents; three siblings, Glen John and twin sisters Tina and Tracey Delsart; three brothers-in-law, Glen Eugene Grimstad Jr., Dr. J.G. Moellendorf, and Colin Bartin; niece Kandy Ann Kostka; aunts and uncles; and other relatives.
Jeff’s life will be honored with a funeral service on Monday, April 1, 7 pm, at Huehns Funeral Home in Sturgeon Bay, with Pastor Gary Scharring officiating. Visitation for family and friends will be held at the funeral home on April 1 from 5 pm until the time of the service.
