Delmar Ray Vlcek

September 22, 1939 – July 13, 2022

VISITATION: Thursday, July 21st from 5pm to 7pm at the West Center Chapel, followed by VIGIL SERVICE at 7pm.  MASS OF CHRISTIAN BURIAL: Friday, July 22nd at 11am at St. Columbkille Catholic Church, 200 E. 6th St. in Papillion, with military honors at church.  In lieu of flowers, memorials are suggested to Wounded Warrior Project.

Delmar was the epitome of the outdoor sportsman.  An avid hunter and fisherman, he spent his free time sharing the love of the outdoors with his friends, family and especially his nephews on the farm in Fullerton, NE.  One of his proudest achievements was building his cabin on the Elkhorn River. Every weekend he would load up his family in the pickup truck and head west on Q Street to “the river.”  Later he would move his family to Copper Dollar Cove to the comfort of a lake house. Eventually they moved  back to the city of Papillion where he lived out the rest of his life after retiring from OPPD some 20 plus years ago. He loved reading, was a lifetime member of the NRA and served proudly in the Army Tank Corps. He was dearly loved by many and will be missed by all.

Delmar was preceded in death by his wife Barbara Vlcek, life partner Pam Rassman, son-in-law David Harris, parents Joseph and Mary Vlcek, a brother and 5 sisters.He is survived by son Rex Vlcek, daughter Sheri Harris, grandchildren Delena (Kevin) Butcher, Dayna (Jonas) Akakpo, Kimberly (Ashish) Sathyan, and Mark (Jennifer) Harris, 9 great-grandchildren, bonus family members Dawn (Robert) Montgomery, Jaden, Annika, and Brock, Shaune (Rod) Miller, Cade and Makenna, sister Rosa (Ed) Ziemba, brother Dennis Vlcek and many nieces and nephews.

    I will miss my Uncle Delmar. I was one of those kids that he loaded into the back of his pickup for that super fun drive to the cabin at the Elkhorn river

    I was one of the kids Uncle Delmar loaded into the back of his pickup for the always fun drive to the cabin on the Elkhorn River. I spent many summer days and nights there and he and Aunt Barb hosted the best 4th of July family get togethers. I also hung out at his place many times with cousins Sheri and Rex after swimming at Upland Park. Thanks for putting up with me, Uncle Delmar. I will miss you!!!
