Delwyn R. Schwager, son of Donald and Helen Marie (Rouse) Schwager, was born Jan. 25, 1954, at Neligh. Delwyn graduated from Neligh High School in 1972.
On Aug. 2, 1983, he was united in marriage to Allene Baer in Yankton, SD. They were the parents of one daughter Tina.
Delwyn was a truck driver and traveled up and down every highway he could find throughout the Midwest. During his career, he drove for North and Son, Barry Tyler, Bruce Forbes, Jerry Binger, Gene Stevens, Bob Morrill and Francis Bergstrom.
Delwyn was always willing to help anyone in need. He also farmed and later bought his grandparents' farm southeast of Royal. Milking cows with the Brandt family was later added along with farming and truck driving.
“Peanuts” was a simple, polite man and you would never see him without his hat. He had many hobbies that he enjoyed but the one thing that brought him the greatest happiness was spending time with his grandkids Creston and Taylon.
When he wasn't working, Delwyn enjoyed gambling, fishing, Busch Light and hanging out at the coffee shops. When the Office Bar in Brunswick was open, he could be found shooting pool, playing cards or even frying fish.
Delwyn is survived by his wife/roommate of 39 years Allene, one daughter Tina (Ned) Bertschinger, two grandkids Creston (Chelsea) Bertschinger and Taylon Bertschinger, two sisters Irene (Ken) Musil and Pam Schwager, one sister-in-law Ruth Schwager, one nephew Gus Schwager and numerous aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews and cousins.
He was preceded in death by his parents, grandparents, and one brother Marvin Schwager.
