Delton "Bunny" Giedd Obituary

Delton Don Giedd, 89, went home to be with the Lord on February 5th, 2024, at Mayo Clinic, surrounded by many loved ones. Delton, known to most as “Bunny”, was born on December 18th, 1934 in Bloomer, WI to Ernest & Madonna (Bleskacek) Giedd. He married his beloved wife Debra (Mantik) Giedd on November 12th, 1988 in Eau Claire, WI.

Bunny had many hobbies and passions throughout his life, such as raising, breaking and showing horses, racing snowmobiles with the Arctic Cat Honkers, and skiing. He had a love of canoeing, enjoying countless canoe trips with friends and family over the years. In his retirement, Bunny loved spending time with his grandchildren, as well as being dedicated to making his lawn and garden the envy of the neighborhood. He loved attending church and all the friendships made because of it. 

Bunny served as an electrician aboard the USS George and USS Buck during the Korean War from 1953 to 1957. He worked as an electrician at Uniroyal/Goodrich from 1958 up until the plant closure in 1992.

Bunny is survived by his four children Ross Giedd (Lyndon Station), Robin Patrow (Lyndon Station), Jodi (Kevin) Link (Eau Claire) and Jamie Hazen (Eugene); His eight grandchildren Kyle (Valerie) Giedd, Michael (Kelly) Giedd, Kayla (Stephen) Schick, Scott (Aurora) Link, Coty (Caitlin) Link, Jacob Hazen, Jessie Hazen, and Adam Conant; His siblings Lynda Giedd (California) and Michel Giedd (Elk Mound), 12 great-grandchildren and many cousins.

Bunny is preceded in death by his wife, Debra Giedd; parents Ernest and Madonna Giedd; siblings Carol Millen, Bonnie Giedd, Betty Giedd, Steven Giedd, and Donna Davey; and grandchildren Tricia Giedd and Christian Tom.
