In 2000, the name was changed to Delkwood Grill and the restaurant/bar has been in operation for thirty years.
He loved going to the cabin in northern Minnesota every summer and met many friends there who played summer hockey with him in his earlier years.
He was preceded in death by his father, his grandparents, and many aunts and uncles. He is survived by his mother, Betsy Chutich, sister Dawn (Ray) Benz, two nieces, Katie (James) Silva and Emily Benz, and twin nephews, Rob and Matt Benz; also, three stepdaughters, Monika, Gina and Mallorie, all of Marietta.
