Obituary for Walter C. Kuebler

He attended school in rural Brownsville in a one-room schoolhouse on his family’s farm. Walter was a lifetime farmer. He was born, raised and lived most of his life on his grandparents' original homestead farm. Walt was known by many as a talented mechanic and someone who would drop what he was doing to help a neighbor or friend with a farm equipment repair or assist with other farm chores. Walter took great pride in his farm, cattle and pets. He received the Root River Soil and Water Conservation district Outstanding Conservation Farmer award in 1999. He also served as a Fire Warden in Crooked Creek Township for 45 years. Walt enjoyed being outdoors, deer hunting, tractor pulls, county fairs and spending time at these activities with his extended family, especially his nieces and nephews. He is survived by his sister, Iris Vetsch of Caledonia; nephews, Rod (Kris) Vetsch of Hokah and Jeff (Twylla) Vetsch of Waseca; nieces, Cindy (Tim) Colleran of Caledonia and Dar (Mike) Peter of Spring Grove; a niece-in-law, Mary Ellen Vetsch of Galesville, WI; and eleven great-nephews and nieces; and thirteen great, great, nephews and nieces.
