He was born in Port Arthur, Texas, on Saturday, June 27,1959, to Delmer Arvel Ammons, Sr. and Charlene (Self) Ammons. After Del finished school he followed in his father’s footsteps and worked alongside him in the construction business. He went onto build several major buildings in Central Louisiana including the Natchitoches Trade School, Mariners Restaurant, several apartment complexes in and around Sabine Parish and the First Baptist Church of Mansfield. Then he went on to work in the oilfield industry; ultimately, he came back to his roots as a construction worker where his career was unfortunately cut short due to an injury at Austin Power Plant.
