Old trees eventually die. There is no broad scale problem that is causing tree death in Delaware. I can't diagnose any problem from the information you sent. Interior needles of evergreens often die because they receive less sun. The trunk has lichen growing on it. That can happen with live trees. This one may be dead or dying, but that isn't evident from the photo. Sorry, I can't be more helpful.
