ROBERT HALVOR BAKKEN was born on May 22, 1959 to Helmer and Arla (Jacobson) Bakken at Luverne Hospital in Luverne, Minnesota. He spent his life on the family farm. He graduated from Luverne High School in 1978. Bob enjoyed being a student manager for Elmer Menage’s football teams and Laurin Carroll’s basketball teams. He also helped in the Resource Room at Grace church under the direction of his dear friends, Larry and Colleen Hoyme. He then attended Sioux Vocational School in Sioux Falls, South Dakota. Following school, he returned home to help his father and his brother, Mark, on the farm. On Monday, May 2, 2016 Bob died at his home at the age of 56 years, 11 months and 10 days.
