He was a senior at Dubois High School, where he was active in football and track.

The family said Delbert never had a bad thing to say about anything or anybody, and always had a smile on his face. He enjoyed fishing and the outdoors, video games and dragons. He loved his animals, Maxwell the monkey, Ralphie the camel, Tina the dog, Dori the cat and biting fish.

Delbert’s ambition was to become a paleontologist or video game designer.

Among his survivors are his parents, D.J. and Beth Madrid; and his brother Matthew Madrid, all of Dubois.

He was preceded in death by a sister, Heather Mae Madrid.
