ELDEN CLAUS FREDERICK REYELTS was born on January 13, 1930 to John Heinrich and Christine Margaretha (Funck) Reyelts on the family farm in Beaver Creek Township, Rock County, Minnesota. He was baptized on February 16, 1930 at their home and confirmed on June 24, 1945 at St. John Lutheran Church in Luverne. He attended first through 12th grade at Beaver Creek High School, graduating in 1947. He was deferred from the United States Draft one time in order to help his father during harvest season and was then drafted into the United States Army in December of 1953. He was honorably discharged and returned home to continue to farm on the family farm. He also attended Veterans Agriculture School while farming for a time. He continued to live on the family farm, until his retirement in 2015. He lived there until he entered the care of the Good Samaritan Society – Mary Jane Brown Home in Luverne on January 15, 2020. While there he received hospice care and passed away peacefully on Thursday, February 13, 2020 at the age of 90 years and one month.
