Obituary for LeRoy Albert Gunther

Brewster, MN

      LeRoy Albert Gunther, age 94, died on Saturday, November 29, 2014, at his residence in rural Brewster, MN. LeRoy was born on March 21, 1920, in Ewington Township, Jackson County, MN, to Henry and Sophia (Obermoller) Gunther. In 1933, they moved to a farm northeast of Brewster.

      LeRoy married Lucille Jean Groenewold on February 6, 1964, at the United Brethren Church in Worthington. He worked on the family farm and operated Gunther’s Repair Shop until retiring in 1985. LeRoy enjoyed taking family vacations, telling his grandchildren stories about his youth, and spending time visiting with neighbors and his many friends. His passion was spending many hours in his shop doing welding and general repairs. LeRoy was never afraid to take anything apart and make it functional again, there wasn’t anything he couldn’t fix. He touched the lives of many with his mechanical abilities and would always help others first before taking care of his own work. He especially enjoyed many years of shelling corn with his neighbors. LeRoy was a member of Trinity Lutheran Church in Brewster, serving on several church boards. He also enjoyed spending time with friends at the Senior Center in Brewster visiting and playing cards and pool.

      LeRoy is survived by his wife, Lucille of Brewster, MN; daughter, Crystal (Dean) Wipf of Huron, SD; son, Galen (Lola) Gunther of Brewster, MN; six grandchildren, Hayley & Trace Wipf, Taylor Rossow, and Lee, Leah & Ross Gunther, and many nieces and nephews.

      He was preceded in death by his parents, an infant sister at birth, and two sisters, Leola Lowe and Marcelline Luebben.

      Funeral services will be held on Wednesday, December 3, 2014, at 10:30 a.m., at the Trinity Lutheran Church in Brewster, MN, with Pastor David McDonald officiating. Casket bearers will be Galen Gunther, Dean Wipf, Bill Brunk, Gene Brunk, Tom McCarvel, and Ron McCarvel.

      Blessed be his memory.
