Delmas Wilbur Ours

July 23, 1962 — September 29, 2021

Delmas Wilbur Ours, age 59 of Mt. View Road, Purgitsville, WV, passed away Wednesday evening, September 29, 2021 at Hampshire Memorial Hospital in Romney, WV, after a 3+ year, courageous battle with Lou Gehrig’s disease. Born on July 23, 1962 in Keyser, WV, he was the son of the late Ervin Ours and Lena Mae Thorne Ours. He was also preceded in death by brothers, Roger & Bobby and a sister, Linda Sherman. Delmas was a graduate of Moorefield High School Class of 1981.

A farmer is one who is strong minded, has a big heart and plenty of patience. A farmer usually has a passion for the land that most will never know or understand, and the legacy of that land that has been passed on. Delmas was this kind of farmer, a man who loved the land and the bounty upon which he reaped. Most remember his jokester passion for life, a man who loved his home, his family as well as hunting but most of all his true work ethic. He truly was a lifelong farmer.

Surviving is his loving wife of 38 years, Sandy L. Shockey Ours; a daughter, Brittany Lee (John) Winslow of Moorefield, WV; a son, Ethan Welton (Lacy) Ours of Purgitsville, WV; grandchildren, Rilynn Jae Ours and   Jackson Delmas Winslow; five brothers; Roscoe Ours, Larry Ours, James Ours, Randy Ours & Michael Ours all of Purgitsville, WV; five sisters, Carol Ours of Moorefield, WV; Arletta  Miller & Esther Runions of Purgitsville, WV, Mary Barb of Old Fields, WV and Nancy Schwebel of Philadelphia, MS and numerous nieces, nephews and extended family.

Graveside Services will be conducted 2:00 PM Sunday, October 3, 2021 at the Mt. View Church Cemetery, 2886 Mt. View Road, Purgitsville, WV, with Pastor Andy Sions & Lane Lee officiants. Interment will follow.
