It is with deep regret that I inform you of the passing of retired Fire Captain Deltes Cooper. Deltes began his career with CDF as a Seasonal Firefighter in June 1957 at the Millerton Fire Station. In May of 1958 Deltes received a permanent appointment to the Fire Apparatus Engineer Classification and promoted to a Fire Captain in January of 1960. As a Fire Captain, Deltes worked in the Schedule B program at Coalinga Fire Station as well as a number of Mid Valley Fire Stations. Deltas retired from Fig Garden Fire Station #21 on December 1, 1987.

He is survived by his wife Joanne and immediate family. His grandson Dennis Smith is a Fire Captain at the Blasingame FFS in FKU. Deltes was also one of the first members of CDFEA and was a huge part of the organization after signing up.

Services will be held May 13th, 10:00 am at God’s Family Church on 7272 W. Shaw, Fresno, CA. Graveside services to follow at the Clovis Cemetery on Villa and Herndon.

Please keep the family in your thoughts and prayers at this difficult time.

Keith A. Larkin, Chief
CAL FIRE Fresno-Kings Unit
Fresno County Fire Protection Dist.
