Glenn Allen Homandberg, 83, Lismore, died unexpectedly Saturday, June 15, 2019, at his home.
A funeral service is at 10 a.m. Wednesday, June 19, at Canton Lutheran Church in Canton, South Dakota.
Glenn Homandberg was born on March 28, 1936, to Arne and Agnes (Laugen) Homandberg. He graduated from Canton High School in 1954.
He married Evelyn McKenney on May 24, 1960, at Canton Lutheran Church. The couple farmed and raised livestock outside of Beloit, Iowa, until 1995 when they moved and began farming east of Leota. After semi-retiring, he moved to Lismore.
Glenn enjoyed collecting tractors and toys, playing cards, visiting, and after his wife, Evelyn, died in 2003, he took over her card-writing job to pen pals and family. Family was very important to Glenn. He loved attending his grandchildren’s events and never missed a family reunion.
