Obituary for Delmar "Sonny" Wetz

Delmar (Sonny) Percy Wetz went to be with the lord on March 30, 2018 at the age of 83. He was born in Comal County on June 29, 1934. He was the eldest of six boys born to the late Melvin and Irma (Harborth) Wetz. After attending Solm’s School, Sonny traveled the rodeo circuit with his friends riding bareback and saddle broncs. As a devoted husband and father he gave up the rodeo scene to become an auto body mechanic/ shop manager for Bock Motor Company and later for Bluebonnet Motor Company. In addition to his day job Sonny worked and lived on the KTV Angus Ranch for over 30 years. His love of ranching led him to raising a small cattle herd of his own as well as cultivating hay. His greatest joy in life was helping friends and spending time with family in the great outdoors. Sonny’s greatest pleasures in life were spending time with the grandkids, watching the horses graze and feeding the deer. He loved old country western music as well as traditional German folk songs. He loved telling stories about his grandfather and what he happily referred to as the good old days.
He is survived by wife Carol (Carter) Wetz of 51 years. He also had sons Randy, Royce,
Rorie as well as daughter Felicia (Wetz) Mordhorst and husband Bryon. Six grandchildren,
Stacy Welch and husband Jason, Daniel Dugi And wife Monica, Jenny Irwin and husband Bryan, Sarah Lerma and Husband Jerry, Katrina Wetz, Jillian Wetz, Garrison & Ivan Mordhorst as well as 10 great grandchildren. He is also survived by brothers Harold (Mickey) and Darvin Wetz plus numerous nieces, nephew and cousins. He was preceded in death by brothers Robert (Butch), Van, and Cleburn (Sparkey) Wetz.
It was his wish to be cremated and have a memorial to be attended by friends and family which will be scheduled at a later date. As devoted husband, father & grandfather he will always be remembered for his dry sense of humor, love of ranching & working hard. His motto will always be “There is the right way, the wrong way & the Sonny Wetz way.”
A celebration of Sonny's life will be held at the family home, 3930 FM 482, New Braunfels, TX 78132 at 11:00 a.m. on Saturday, May 12, 2018.
