Kenneth M. Rolfhus

Kenneth Marlin Rolfhus, 75, of Annandale passed away Sunday, July 1, 2018, of a sudden heart attack.

Services will be held at Nordland Lutheran Church in rural Paynesville 2 p.m. Friday, July 20. Visitation will be held one hour prior to service at the church, and a private burial will be at a later date. Memorials preferred to the family, in lieu of flowers.

Kenny is survived by his loving wife Brenda, of 56 years; his children Robin Ruprecht of Annandale, Ryan (Carrie) Rolfhus of Paynesville, and Reed (Jodie) Rolfhus of Monticello; grandchildren Nikki (Eric) Allbee, Shane Ruprecht, Shelby (Mitchell) Nordmann, Sadie Rolfhus, Courtney, Chloie, and Allison Rolfhus, Angela and Wyatt Rotter; great-grandchildren Eli, Ezra and baby Allbee. He is also survived by brothers Robert (Kathy) Rolfhus of Stoddard, Wisconsin, and Delroy Rolfhus of St Cloud, and brother-in-law Donald Stanger of St Cloud, along with numerous nieces and nephews.

He was preceded in death by his parents, and sister Joyce Stanger.

Kenneth Marlin Rolfhus was born in New London to Oliver and Ida (Anderson) Rolfhus, on Feb. 26, 1943. Kenny and his siblings grew up on a rural farm near Hawick and attended a one-room country school where their mother was the teacher. He was baptized and confirmed at Nordland Lutheran Church. Kenny graduated high school in New London in 1961, and graduated with a bachelor's degree in chemistry at St. Cloud State College in 1966. He was a high school science and chemistry teacher until 1981, when he joined the carpenters and joiners union local 322, where he worked until he retired in 2001.

Kenny married the love of his life, Brenda Joyce Naumann on June 16, 1962, at the Paynesville Methodist Church. They were blessed with three children.

Kenny enjoyed gardening, fishing, hunting with his kids and grandkids on the family farm, and spending time at the lake with family and friends. He devoted much of his spare time to helping and caring for his parents, aunts and uncles. He had the best sense of humor, often interjecting his quirky one-liners. Kenny followed the Vikings, Twins and Gophers, and always had WCCO on every radio he owned. He was also a long-time member of the Paynesville sportsman's club.
