A funeral service was Tuesday, Oct. 13, at the Hartquist Funeral Home in Luverne. Burial was in the Adrian Cemetery in Adrian.
Dallas Charles Marr was born on April 25, 1943, to Donald and Eileen (Schei) Marr in Adrian. He was raised on the family farm northeast of Magnolia. After finishing his education, he farmed full time with his dad.
Dallas married Linda Grotjohn on Jan. 14, 1967, at Zion Lutheran Church in Adrian. The couple made their first home in an additional small dwelling on Dallas’ parents’ farm. In 1970 they moved to an acreage one mile west of his parents’ home. In 1977 they moved back to the farm place where Dallas grew up. He continued to farm with his dad for several more years. He often could be found mowing his yard, the ditches and even the neighbors’ ditches.
In his later years, Dallas enjoyed going to town for coffee with his friends and listening to polka music while driving around the country to check on the crops. He often joked around and was known to be blunt and to the point.
Dallas is survived by his wife, Linda; two daughters, Janeen (Colin) Fettig of Brooklyn Park and Lisa (Mark) Marr-Lyon of Los Alamos, New Mexico; four grandchildren, Nicholas Fettig, Hannah Fettig, Leah Marr-Lyon and Josie Marr-Lyon; and many cousins and friends.
He was preceded in death by his parents.
