Delbert P. Clozza, age 72 of Canton, passed away suddenly on October 31, 2020 from a cardiac event.

Del was born on March 27, 1948 in Detroit to the late Adelfie and Anita Clozza. In the 10th grade, he met his biology lab partner and high school sweetheart, Sue.

Del was a Corvette enthusiast, a Michigan football fan and enjoyed walking and biking. He loved to vacation in the Leelanau Peninsula in the summer and The Villages in Florida in the winter. He was known as someone who could fix anything and would always lend a helping hand to anyone at any time.

He was the proud father of Katie (Mohak) Davé and Kelli (Nicholas) Paparelli, cherished grandfather of Jenna and Jay Davé, and the oldest sibling to Barbara (the late Jim) Williams, Jane (John) Currier, Jean (Michael) Duskey and Charlie Clozza. Loving brother-in-law of Mary Jane (Paul) Jacobs. Beloved uncle to Roberta Williams, Gerald Williams, Janelle Currier and the late Jared Currier.
