He was a wonderful brother, dad, son, and friend that was very loved, he is greatly missed, and will always be cherised. DeLandres enjoyed being around friends and family, his grandmother especially. DeLandres had the voice, dance moves, and had a smile that would lighten up any dull room. DeLandres enjoyed family gatherings, playing cards, dancing and enjoying life in the moment. On Sunday, July 5, 2020 DeLandres was called to be with the Lord. They say nothing lasts forever and until now, I believed that.
