Daniel James Deliz

April 3, 1934 — September 14, 2023

Capt. (Ret) Daniel James Deliz, 89, of Oneonta, AL died peacefully at his daughters’ home in Jacksonville, AL on Thursday, September 14, 2023, with his family by his side.

Mr. Deliz was born April 3, 1934, in Providence, RI, son of the late Frank J. Deliz and Mary Charlotte Furtado Deliz. He had retired from the U. S.
