First off I am posting this for someone unable to do it for themselves.

As subject states his contacts are self deleting from his new phone as he deletes them from his old phone and is not aware of why this happens. Or how to prevent it.

He probably has them synced/on through iCloud. He needs to turn "off" contacts in iCloud
Xrayayes is right. It's iCloud syncing between two or more devices.

Thanks for the replies . Will pass this info on.
It may not be just iCloud, it could also be any other service like gmail, yahoo, or Facebook. It's all going to depend on what he has set up for contact syncing.
