Hours before his death on January 19, 2020, he still held his arms open to welcome them with hugs. Dad served the community faithfully and enjoyed the jobs that were bestowed him. Whether it was Dairy Man which he worked with for 23 years, Zul Bruder for a number of years, a short time as German School Teacher for younger children or doing chicken deliveries with his brother-in-law Zack. From 2000 to 2016 he worked at Northland Steel & Trim, a job he thoroughly enjoyed and always was on his mind. In 2016, due to a work-related accident, he was unable to continue doing the things he loved, like mowing his lawn and keeping it free of weeds. In his spare time, you could find him fixing broken toys or other broken knick-knacks and singing his favorite hymns morning and night. A funeral service will be 2:00 P.M.
