Obituary for Dwight D. Lafrenz

DWIGHT DUANE LAFRENZ was born May 19, 1946 to Henry and Martha (Meins) Lafrenz in Luverne, Minnesota. He was raised on the family farm and attended school in Luverne. Following his graduation from Luverne High School, Dwight went to work on the family farm and other nearby farmers. He then married Diane Chipperfield. The couple divorced a short time later. In addition to farming, Dwight also worked for a number of years skinning furs for Raplh Watts, did custom hay work farm work for Bill Reu, and worked for a time at both Hanson Silo and I.B.P. In recent years, Dwight battled various health ailments. On Saturday, September 5, 2020, Dwight died peacefully at the Sanford Luverne Hospice Cottage at the age of 74 years, three months and 16 days.

Dwight’s passion in life was farming and simply living life. He enjoyed visiting with anybody who leant an ear and befriended many. He was always willing to help anyone out with whatever he could. He often was in need of replacing his muffler as he frequently ended up driving the ditches to chase his cows back inside the fence. He loved his dogs and often could be seen with them by his side.

Dwight is survived by his son, Mark Lafrenz of Sioux Falls, South Dakota; grandson, Caleb; granddaughter, Oaklee; sister, Elsie and her husband, Jerry Wallace of Luverne; brother, Don and his wife, Pat Lafrenz of Luverne; four nephews, Wayne (Alisia) Lafrenz, Douglas Lafrenz, Darin Lafrenz, and Waylon Lafrenz; two dogs, Jasper and Tubby; and other family and friends. He was preceded in death by his parents, Henry and Martha Lafrenz.
