Father Delabar is a former Scioto county boy, having spent most of his life near Wheelersburg. Since locating in the South he spent most of his vacations in this city and during the absence of Rev. J. E. McGuirk he acted as substitute pastor of Holy Redeemer church. He was a brilliant young priest with a promising future, and his passing away will cause genuine sorrow to all who knew him.
