Kermit Dicke Obituary

Kermit Dicke, 86, of Lake City, passed away at Mayo Clinic Hospital, St. Marys Campus in Rochester on Sunday, July 12, 2020 from injuries as a result of a car accident on July 6, 2020.
    Kermit was born on July 18, 1933 in Red Wing to Walter and Amelia (Strusz) Dicke. He went to parochial school in Hay Creek and later attended Red Wing High School. Kermit entered the Army and served from 1954 to 1956. He married his wife Angie Klein on Oct. 11, 1958. Kermit worked at the Goodhue Creamery from 1956 to 1962.  At that time they moved to the Klein family farm in Belvidere Township and began farming.   They moved to Lake City in 1991.  He continued to work on the farm until the day of the accident.  Kermit was a member of St. Peter’s Belvidere Lutheran Church and over the years served on the church board.
    Kermit enjoyed driving throughout the countryside looking at the crops.  But his favorite pastime was spending time with his grandchildren.
    He is survived by his wife, Angie; his sons, Daniel (Jean) Dicke and Mark (Leslie) Dicke; his daughters, Deborah (Craig) Henslin and Lynette Dicke (Kyle Erie); seven grandchildren, Alex, Mitchell and Elizabeth Dicke, Wayne and Bill Henslin and Jordyn and Emma Dicke; seven great-grandchildren; and two sisters, Verna Schrader and Doris Swanson.
