Rueben Aichele, 92, passed away April 20, 2012, at Amery Regional Medical Center, Amery, Wis., with his loving daughter at his side.
Rueben was born March 29, 1920, in Kidder County, to Wilhelm and Rosena (Ziegler) Aichele. He was raised and educated east of Tuttle.
After serving in the U.S. CCC in North Dakota and Washington state, he married Ruby Weippert on Sept. 10, 1940, in Steele. After farming and living in Colorado and California, they moved to Tuttle in 1945.
Rueben worked for the Burlington Northern Railroad and Conoco Gas Company prior to a long career of highway construction for Kidder and Burleigh counties. He retired in 1982. He was a member of Tuttle English Lutheran Church, the Eagles, was a volunteer fireman and served on the city council.
Rueben was an avid sportsman and Tuttle was his paradise, where he could hunt, trap or fish every season. He also enjoyed designing and producing a large variety of metal art pieces and loved sharing them with others.
In 2004, Rueben and Ruby moved to St. Croix Falls, Wis., to be near their daughter; then to the Golden Age Manor in Amery in 2008, where he particularly enjoyed the dancing and music programs, often playing along on his harmonica.
Rueben was preceded in death by his parents; his wife, Ruby; one sister, Louise Miller; and an infant son, Harold.
He leaves to celebrate his memory: his daughter, Bonnie Schimke and her husband, Glenn, Balsam Lake, Wis.; two granddaughters, Dr. Nicole Schimke-Jones and her son, Hunter, Wales, Wis., and Mandee Schroeder and her husband, Tom, and their children, Kylee, Nathan and Jonathan, Ft. Atkinson, Wis.; one sister, Doris Beers, Livermore, Calif.; his nieces and nephews; and a multitude of great friends. He loved and was loved by his family and friends.
Services will be held at 11 a.m. Saturday, April 28, at Tuttle English Lutheran Church. The family will be greeting visitors at the church from 10 a.m. until the time of service.
Rueben will be laid to rest alongside his wife, Ruby, at the Tuttle Cemetery.
