[Waterloo Courier, Tuesday, November 1, 2011]

WATERLOO - Darrell L. Adelmund, 70, of Waterloo, died Monday morning, Oct. 31, at his home after a long, valiant struggle with cancer.

He was born Aug. 14, 1941, in Charles City, the son of Jacob and Gertrude Hull Adelmund. He attended Charles City and New Hartford schools. He was a senior engineer analyst for the John Deere Waterloo Tractor Works for 28 years, retiring in 2001, which gave him time for his hobbies making beautiful pieces of furniture that he gave to his family.

He married Elaine Baguss in 1961, and they later divorced. He then married Joy S. Bolden on Feb. 21, 1979, in Waterloo. He lovingly called her his bride until the very end.

Darrell believed in the Lord and was member of Church of Christ. His religion was a great comfort during his illness.

Darrell was an accomplished musician. He played with "The Country Kings" and "Dim." He also played with stars such as Hank Williams Jr. and Gene Vincent and the Blue Caps. He recorded several records, always with what he called "Big Red," which was his classic Gibson Barney Kessell guitar.

He is survived by his wife; three sons, Dean (Jill) Adelmund of Jackson, Mo., Don (Kristan) Adelmund of Lake Geneva, Wis., and David (Diane) Lewis of Waterloo; four daughters, Dixie (Dave) Kroft of Estherville, Chlora (Tim) Beiner of Stronghurst, Ill., Darla (Steve) Myers of Clear Lake and Lisa (Jeff) Poston of Teutopolis, Ill.; three brothers, Dan (Sharron) Adelmund of Round Lake Beach, Ill., Doug (Mary) Thorne of Evansdale and Jack (Lauren) Adelmund of Round Lake Beach; two sisters, Sally Shipper and Carolyn Cobb, both of New Hartford; his stepfather, Lloyd Flugge of Nashua; 11 grandchildren; five great-grandchildren; and two precious pets, Diva and LeeLa.

He was preceded in death by his parents; his stepmother, Irene Adelmund; his stepbrother, Danny Flugge; and a sister, Mary Fuller.

Services will be at 10:30 a.m. Friday, Nov. 4, at Kearns, Huisman-Schumacher Chapel on Kimball, with burial in Garden of Memories Cemetery. Friends my call at the funeral home from 4 to 7 p.m. Thursday and an hour before services Friday.

Those who wish may direct memorials to Cedar Valley Hospice.
