I Love My Community: Delroy Sibblis

By  0 Comments

Delroy Sibblis, owner and chef of Delroy’s Deli and Catering at the Port of Stockton, sat down with HERLIFE Magazine recently to share his dedication to family and community.

HLM: How long have you lived here? What do you love most?
DS: I’m originally from Jamaica. I moved to Stockton in 2003 from Oakland. There is so much to love about Stockton. I love the people, lots of summer fun things to do, and I enjoy the many sporting events.

HLM: How is your heart inspired to serve the community?
DS: As a chef, I love being involved at the many events throughout the county and love to meet with the people who come to the Delroy’s food booth at all the various festivals. Good work is being done through so many organizations like the Earth Day Festival, the Asparagus Festival, Festa Italiana, Family Day at the Park, Juneteenth, to name a few. And the Community Foundation of San Joaquin has encouraged me to work with many more.

HLM: What sparks joy for you?
DS: I get great joy from feeding the people in the community and watching people enjoy my cooking! You should come by and try my Jamaican Jerk Chicken.

HLM: Outside of work, how is your time best spent?
DS: I am a very simple person, and I stay busy working hard.

HLM: Top three bucket list goals?
DS: I would love to travel, with Africa being at the top of the list, and also travel throughout the U.S.A.

HLM: What accomplishment are you most proud of?
DS: I am proud to be a businessowner, working hard every day, serving the people of our community. I love when people come to the deli and enjoy one of my great menu items. Hope you’ll stop by soon or come see me at the next community festival!

HLM: Do you have a favorite quote?
DS: Work smarter, not harder.

HLM: Favorite food or dessert?
DS: I love fish, especially red snapper. A nice piece of chocolate cake is the very best! Of course, any cake is good!
