Obituary for John Robert Sather

John Robert Sather, 72, passed away on March 7, 2020. John was born on January 22, 1948 in Worthington, MN to Kenneth and Helen (Schroeder) Sather. He lived in the town of Round Lake before moving with his family to the west side of the lake in 1953. He loved his childhood on the lake, with many adventures exploring and helping with the birds at Kenneth’s Waterfowl Station. He was an avid hunter and fisherman at this time and enjoyed the outdoor life. In 1966, he graduated from Round Lake High School and moved to Minneapolis. He attended the University of Minnesota and became a lifelong Gopher fan. On June 6, 1970, he married Sandra Huehn in Round Lake, MN. They started a family and built the home he loved in 1975 on the west shore of Round Lake, where he lived until he passed.
John spent his life working and building the Sather Candy Company with his family. As in all family businesses, John did it all. His first jobs as a young boy were doing inventory with his dad and loading trucks. He was heavily involved with the Dispatch and Sales Departments, where he made and retained many treasured friendships. The business was a large part of John’s life and he was proud of his family’s lifework.
John loved taking care of his family and friends. He was a calming force for his family, a husband and father who was always relied upon. He adored his grandchildren, almost as much as they adored their Grandpa John. They brought great joy to his life. He was a beloved brother, uncle and great-uncle and was very loyal. He had a passion for bird watching, fishing and wildlife. He enjoyed reading, sports, especially watching his grandkids and his MN Gophers, playing cards, and traveling the road.
John is survived by his loving wife, Sandra Sather of Round Lake; his children, Kari (Lester) Mitchell, Lakeville, MN, Lisa (Kent) Hedtke of Richardson, TX, and John (Lynne) Sather of Lakeville, MN; grandchildren, Shae and Jada Mitchell, Veronica, Racquel and Marcena Hedtke, and Wilson and Jaelyn Sather. He is also survived by his siblings, Mary Ann Sather, Barb (Karl) Hansen, Duane (Diane) Sather, Larry (Kathy) Sather and Rod (Lynnette) Sather, his brothers-in-law, Gayle (Carmen) Huehn and Richard (Vi) Huehn and many nieces and nephews. John was preceded in death by his father and mother, his mother-in-law and fathers-in-law, and a niece.
