Our father, Delbert "Del" Fagerlund, passed away on March 28, 2013. He was 95 years old.
Memorial services will be held at First English Lutheran Church, Faribault on Tuesday, April 2, 2013 at 10:30 a.m. with the Reverend David J. Hurtt officiating. Interment will be at Maple Lawn Cemetery, Faribault.
A memorial visitation will be at First English Lutheran Church for one hour prior to the service on Tuesday.
Arrangements are being completed by the Boldt Funeral Home, Faribault.
Del was born to Charlie and Jennie Fagerlund on February 14, 1918. He had two brothers Morris and Denton and two sisters, Peggy Langeland and Jeanette Moe.
Del met the love of his life, Velma (Krause). They courted for 8 months and were married December 25, 1948. Dad was never known for his patience. They raised two daughters, Jane Lund of Bloomington, Minnesota and Jill Fagerlund of Faribault. He is also survived by one sister in law, Vera Krause of Edina.
Dad had many careers and businesses. From owning a "filling station" to owning two motels. Owning the motels was a dream come true. Dad had the family on the move. We lived in California, Arizona, Arkansas, Missouri and Minnesota. He valued time with his family. He loved garage sales, auctions, bikes and antique clocks.
We admired Dad for his love for family and his positive attitude. Dad had a great sense of humor and lived his life with joy and a twinkle in his eye. Our family will miss him, but we are grateful for the wonderful memories of him that we will have forever.
Please no flowers. Donations to First English Lutheran Church or St. Croix Hospice in Dadís name would be appreciated instead.
