Delbert “Del” Ray Lapointe, 73, of Vidor, passed away on Friday, August 21, 2020. Born November, 20, 1946 in Port Arthur to Standford John Lapointe and Nellie Melodia Clark Lapointe, Del was always a quiet man. The epitome of the strong silent man, Del loved his family and truly enjoyed his time at home relaxing after the workday. A hard worker, Del took good care of his family and instilled that same ethic in his children. When at home Del could usually be found enjoying a show or Cowboy’s game on TV or working on keeping his car pristine. Del lived a simple but meaningful life and will not soon be forgotten by those that knew him.
Del is survived by his sons, Joey Ray Lapointe of Vinton, LA, and Corey Del Lapointe of Bridge City; his sisters Martha Nantz of Hemphill, and Joann Beranham of Bridge City; his grandchildren, Christian Blake Lapointe, Faith Rosa Lapointe, Jeremy Scott Lapointe, and Nathan Cole Lapointe; and his 6 great-grandchildren.
Del is preceded in death by his parents Standford John Lapointe and Nellie Melodia Clark Lapointe.
