Donald Kremin, 69
Donald William Kremin was born November 9, 1928 to Erwin and Minnie (Schaffran) Kremin in Underwood Township, Redwood County, Minnesota. He was baptized at St. John's Lutheran Church in Vesta and attended country school in District 66. He was confirmed at St. John's Lutheran in 1942 and graduated from Milroy High School in 1946.
Following graduation he served two years in the U.S. Army in the South Pacific.
Don married Phyllis Meier on November 7, 1948 at St. John's Lutheran Church in Vesta. They lived in Redwood Falls where he worked at Gambles as a manager trainee until 1950. From 1950 through 1969 he worked for Midland Cooperatives managing gas station and fertilizer operations at Scenic City Co-op in Redwood Falls and Marshall County Co-op in Warren.
On November 1, 1969 Don and his family moved to Glenwood where he bought a plumbing and heating firm which he owned and operated for 23 years before retiring in 1992.
Don had a great love for traveling, construction and all things mechanical. He enjoyed his retirement years wintering in the Rio Grande Valley of Southern Texas.
Out of love for his Savior, Don led an active church life, serving on church boards and councils at St. John's Lutheran of Vesta, St. John's Lutheran of Redwood Falls and Calvary Lutheran of Glenwood where he was treasurer and Sunday school teacher for many years. He enjoyed the privilege of serving as a delegate to two Synod conventions; one at Prairie du Chien, Wisconsin and the other, this past summer, at Watertown, Wisconsin.
Don is survived by Phyllis, his wife of 49 years; three sons and one daughter: Barry Kremin and Kim, Steve Kremin and Diane, and Boyd Kremin all of Glenwood and Denise Smith and Kim of Rapid City, South Dakota; six grandchildren:: Sara and Krista Kremin, and Abby and Mitchell Kremin all of Glenwood, and Wyatt and Kelly Smith of Rapid City; his mother Minnie Kremin of Litchfield; two brothers, Orville Kremin of Vesta and Warren Kremin of Redwood Falls; and one sister, Leora (Mrs. Willard) Erickson of Litchfield.
He was preceded in death by an infant son in 1963; father Erwin Kremin in 1969; two sisters, Ardyce McDermott in 1986 and Doris Kraemer in 1996; and brother LeRoy Kremin in 1990.
Funeral service was Friday at 10:30 a.m. at the Calvary Lutheran Church in Glenwood. Interment was in the Glenwood Cemetery.
