Warren Everett Servin, age 85, of Dassel, died Saturday, Sept. 7, 2013, at the Cokato Manor.
He was born Sept. 16, 1927, in Cambridge, the son of Oscar and Anna (Johnson) Servin. Warren attended district schooling in the Lamson area.
He was a member of the Gethsemane Lutheran Church, where he was baptized and later confirmed.
Warren served his country in the United States Army in 1946 and 1947.
He was united in marriage to Elsie Mae Soderberg April 12, 1952, at the First Lutheran Church in Dassel. The couple made their home and farmed in the Lamson area until 1965, when they moved their family into Dassel.
After farming, Warren worked for Haapala Seeds, and then at 3M Corporation in Hutchinson from 1968 until he retired in 1989.
Warren’s life was his family, and especially the times that he could spend with his grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
Always a farmer at heart, he could often be found helping out local farmers with their field work. Warren loved to watch nature and to see how the crops were growing. He enjoyed crossword puzzles; “The Price is Right,” “Wheel of Fortune,” and cheering on the Minnesota Twins.
He is survived by his children, Lonny (Patty) Servin of Oregon, WI, Annie (Michael Crowley) Servin of Iowa City, IA, and David Servin of Lamson; nine grandchildren, Makayla Servin, Desiree Henke, and Arik Breitholtz, Jodi McManaway, Jennifer Howe, Dan McBee, Ezra Crowley, Chad Beilke and Cory Beilke; 10 great-grandchildren, Maeson Henke, Wes McManaway, Owen Howe, Aethan Crowley, Kourtny Beilke, Caleb Beilke, Cameron Beilke, Halii Beilke, Kylee Beilke, and Kayden Beilke; and his “bff” his dog, Stella.
Warren was preceded in death by his wife, Elsie Mae, July 4, 2008; his parents, Oscar and Anna; and a brother, Orville Servin.
A memorial service took place Wednesday, Sept. 11 at 2:30 p.m. at the Gethsemane Lutheran Church in Dassel with the Rev. Steven Olson officiating. An interment of the urn will take place on a later date.
There was a time to gather with family one hour prior to the service Wednesday afternoon at Gethsemane Lutheran Church in Dassel.
