He had been in Halifax on business in his role as chairman of the mining sector of the Provincial Voluntary Economic Planning Commission. Mr. Delaney officially retired from the United Mine Workers of America in 1975 when he was director of International Affairs for the union. He served 25 years as International Board Member for District 26, a post he held until his retirement. Shortly after he retired the post of International Board Member, he began a campaign and created the term (Automatic Assumption). That developed into the Mineworkers Respiratory Disease Association and won the support of all mine locals in Cape Breton. Mr. Delaney was elected as chairman and held that post at the time of his death. The association became a strong lobby on behalf of mine workers suffering from lung diseases and it was only recently that Provincial Health Minister Dr. Gerald Sheehy announced that a special unit dealing with lung diseases would be established in Glace Bay. This was one of the major accomplishments gained by the association. Mr. Delaney was born in Glace Bay and educated here. His trade was that of a machinist and he began his career working at No. 2 Colliery in 1926. Later he moved to the Dominion Coal Companys Central Machine Shop on Union Street. He transferred to No. 11 for a short periond and then returned to the machine shop. He began attending meetings of Mechanical Local Union in 1933 and in 1934 attended a UMW District Convention.

In 1950 he sought the post of International Board Member and won elections continually thereafter. In 1970 he won the post by acclamation, In 1954 he polled the larest vote ever recorded in the history of District 26. Durning the period of 1970 to 1973 he was appointed president of District 18, a new district which served the miners of Western Canada. He was a member of the International Federation of Free Trade Unions with headquarters in Belgium and the Miners Foundation of Labor, headquarters in London, England. When he was appointed to the post of director of International Affairs for the UMW he became the first Canadian to hold the post. At the time of his retirement he urged members to guard and protect the UMW. Remember always, that a labor union is a working man' s best friend . In the 1950's he was named to a special committee by Premier Stanfield when Medicare was to be introduced to the province. It was Mr. Delaney who was called on by committee to address a meeting of the Nova Scotai Medical Association to outline the scheme. In 1969 he served on a Royal Commission on Salaries for members of the Provincial Legislature. He served on the Board of Governors of both St. Francis Xavier and Dalhousie Universities. He maintained his membership in the UMW of A, up to the time of his death. He was one of those who helped to revive the Victorian Order of Nurses in Glace Bay in the 1960's.

Comments: Loving Memories
Your gentle face and patient smile
with sadness we recall
You had a kindly word for each
and died beloved by all.
The voice is mute and stilled the heart,
that loved us well and true,
Ah, bitter was the trial to part
from on so good as you.
You are not forgotten loved one
nor will you ever be,
As long as life and memory last
we will remember thee.
We miss you now, our hearts are sore,
as time goes by we miss you more,
Your loving smile, your gentle face,
no one can fill your vacant place.
