DeLoy loved spending his time being outdoors; from being strapped to the draft horses while his father worked the fields or handling the cows on the dairy and taking care of all the other farm chores. He loved to ride horses, go fishing and hunting with the family. Being in Fairview was always a great get away for him and the family. He loved his pulling horses and enjoyed being with his son’s driving the team. Later in life he was privileged to serve a mission in Nauvoo with Mom. They found great joy serving together. While on his mission, many family members were able watch him perform in plays and work the draft horses and oxen teams. He and mom came home and were able to serve in the temple for years together.
