Obituary for Dale Henry Knuth

Worthington, MN

Dale Henry Knuth, age 79, was born on December 9, 1937, at the Kilbright Hospital in Worthington, MN, the son of Henry and Alice (Habeck) Knuth. He was baptized at Grace Lutheran Church and confirmed at the American Lutheran Church. Dale first attended District 22 country school until the family moved to his present farm. He then attended Worthington Public School. Upon graduation he entered the Army National Guard where he served from 1960 to 1981 at which point the Armory closed. Dale continued working for the State of Minnesota by doing maintenance work for Minnesota West until his retirement in 2000.
Dale married Lora Lee Timm on November 25, 1988 and at that time, “he moved into town”. He was seldom seen without a cap which often included a logo that represented an interest, a location they visited or just a catchy saying. Dale liked the Studebaker car, Minneapolis Moline Tractors, Dodge pickups, blue jeans, and plaid shirts. Until the later years he enjoyed fishing, traveling, and enjoying a morning and afternoon cup of coffee with the “boys”. Dale passed away on Tuesday, September 5, 2017, at the Sunset Hospice Cottage in Worthington, MN, where he was a resident since July.
Dale is survived by his wife, Lora Lee Timm-Knuth of Worthington, MN; nieces, nephews, and a great nephew. He was preceded in death by his parents.
Memorial services will be held on Saturday, September 9, 2017, at 10:30 a.m., at the American Lutheran Church in Worthington, MN, with Pastor Gary Andersen officiating. Honorary bearers will be Roger Peysar, Don Nilson, Roger Doeden, Larry Doeden, Byron Bicknese, and Russell Rickers. Burial will be held at a later date in the Worthington Memorial Gardens Cemetery. Visitation will be held on Friday, September 8, 2017, from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m., at the Benson Funeral Home in Worthington and one hour prior to the service at the church.
In lieu of flowers, memorials are preferred to Sunset Hospice Cottage Inc. or American Lutheran Church Scholarship Fund.
