Obituary

We were blessed to learn many valuable lessons from Kenny the 54 years he was with us. Among them: never be too busy to lend a helping hand, greet everyone with a hug and a smile, and always be the loudest fan in the stands.

Kenneth N. "Kenny" Feldewerd, age 54 of Melrose, died peacefully surrounded by his family on Saturday, June 9, 2018 at the St. Cloud Hospital in St. Cloud, Minnesota after a determined fight with multiple strokes.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be held at 11 a.m. Friday, June 15 at Immaculate Conception Catholic Church in New Munich with Rev. Mitchell Bechtold officiating and Rev. Ben Kociemba concelebrating.

Visitation will be from 4 to 7 p.m. Thursday and from 10 to 11 a.m. Friday at the church.

Kenneth Nick Feldewerd was born November 11, 1963 in Melrose, Minnesota to Erwin and Dorene (Bueckers) Feldewerd. He graduated from Melrose High School in 1982 and stayed the #1 sports fan of the Dutchmen, rarely missing a game of any sport. Kenny was also a bus driver for the Melrose School District and enjoyed watching the kids grow up. He was united in marriage to Arlene Fredrick on October 20, 1984 at St. Louis Catholic Church in Paynesville. He loved to spend time with his family and friends as well as going on motorcycle rides, fishing, hunting, and camping. Kenny is known as the man that was the jack of all trades, whether it be construction, plumbing, electrical, or just a man with an answer. He was a self-employed construction worker for many years and his family will remember him by always having a project to work on.

Kenny was a member of Immaculate Conception Catholic Church.
