Barton "Bart" Rieck

Barton John Rieck was born on August 7, 1955 to Marvin and Virginia “Peggy” (Bergin) Rieck in Sioux Falls, South Dakota.  He attended Jasper Elementary and High School, graduating in 1973.  He then attended Worthington Junior College where he met many friends that he kept throughout his life.  He moved to Sioux Falls to work for the Gage Brothers. Farming was his life dream.  He came back to Jasper, Minnesota and worked for Gary Winter on his farm.  He then worked for Tri State Silo in Jasper.  In September of 1976 he was united in marriage to the love of his life, Cindy Swenson.  After their marriage, Bart farmed for Kenny Nelson until his father decided to retire.  Bart then took over the farm that had been in the Rieck name for 100 years.  For the last 17 years Bart worked for LG Everist in Dell Rapids, South Dakota. Bart enjoyed hunting with his family, watching his Vikings and many other sports, winning big at the casino, and spending time with his family. He was diagnosed with cancer four years ago.  He fought as the Duke would but on Wednesday, July 12, 2023 he passed away with his family by his side at the Avera McKennan Hospital in Sioux Falls.
