Rodney (Rod) Justin DeLaney, a loving husband, great father, wonderful son, caring brother and a true friend to those who knew him, passed suddenly on August 17, 2011. Rod was born January 14, 1966 in Moab, Utah to Rodger and Faye DeLaney. His family moved to Grantsville when Rod was 4 years old, where he spent his life close to his wonderful family and cherished friends. He attended Grantsville Elementary, Grantsville Middle School and graduated from Grantsville High School in 1984. Rod worked in the Maintenance Department at EG&G Defense Materials (URS) at Deseret Chemical Depot for 4 years. Prior to that he was employed by Maverick and Soelberg's.
Rod married the love of his life, Sherrie Abbott, in 1990. They were sealed to their family in the Salt Lake Temple for time and eternity on May 5, 2000. They have 3 amazing children, Shala (19), Steven (19) and Michelle (18). Rodney’s family was his pride and joy and he cherished them all deeply. Rodney is also survived in death by his parents, Rodger and Faye DeLaney of Grantsville, UT, brothers Andy (Shelli) DeLaney of Fruita, CO, Lynn DeLaney, Robert (Jennifer) DeLaney, Bryan (Danielle) DeLaney, and David (Katie) DeLaney all of Grantsville, UT, his sister Sandra (Eric) Anderson of Grantsville, UT and many nieces and nephews. Rodney is preceded in death by two twin daughters, his grandparents Ted and Eudora Davis and Hector and Lila DeLaney, Sherrie’s mother, Helena Waters, Sherrie’s sister DeAnna Abbott and his faithful and trusty horse Smokey.
Rodney was a kind and loving man to all those who knew him. He could walk into a crowded room of strangers and walk out with each of them as new found friends. His kind loving spirit is going to be greatly missed by all those who knew him. Rod enjoyed the outdoors, riding his 4 wheeler and spending time with his family. Rod leaves behind him many memories which will all be cherished. Rod you were loved in life more than you know and our time with you was too short. This empty place in our lives will never be filled because of the amount of love you continually showed with your kind smile and warm heart. Sherrie wishes to convey a Happy Anniversary to Rod for 21 wonderful years of marriage on August 18, 2011 and wishes deeply that they could have shared this day together.
