Delbert H. Embke, 77, passed away on Monday, June 26, 2023 at home with his wife by his side.
He was born on October 9, 1945 in Black River Falls, WI and raised in Neillsville, WI, the
youngest of four boys born to Herman and Nina (Gates) Embke.
Delbert could fix anything. If he didn’t have the tool, he invented it, which always worked. He
could drive anything, dump truck, cement truck, semi-truck, log truck and anything in the gravel
pit. At age 73 he overhauled a 1962 Allis Chalmers tractor. Most of all Delbert liked to talk to
people, even if he didn’t know them. He liked to make people laugh and smile and was a big
joker, also. Delbert also enjoyed deer hunting, fishing and dancing to old time music.
He is survived by his wife Judy of 58 years, children Catherine Morgan, Roger Embke and Cheryl
(Dave) Rozmenoski, six grandchildren, seven great grandchildren, one brother Ron Embke,
sister-in-law Anita Embke along with many nieces, nephews and cousins. He was preceded in
death by his parents, maternal and paternal grandparents, two brothers Darrell Embke and
Eugene Embke, one half-brother Ernest Embke along with his father and mother-in-law Bernard
and Charlene Hansen.
