Willard G. Severin, age 78 of Lindstrom, MN, died suddenly at home on April 16, 2014.
Willard was born December 7, 1935 in Kandota Township, Sauk Centre, MN to Helmer and Clara (Ecklund) Severin. Willard graduated from Sauk Centre High School in 1954 and served in the National Guard Reserves before farming many years and worked several jobs including plastic molding at Honeywell for 24 years.

He is survived by wife Shirley (nee Jasper); step-daughter, Cherylyn Pemble; grandchildren, Zach, Cym, and Chrystal; great grandson, Leon; sister, June Herbert; nieces, Cheryl, Debra, and Kay; and many grand nieces and nephews.
He was an extraordinary man who had plenty of love in his heart. He was very proud of his Swedish heritage. His parents emigrated from Ed, Dalsland, and Halsingland in Sweden and he was a first generation American. He loved farming, raising both livestock and feed. He was active in his church and enjoyed serving in the color guard honoring our veterans. He will be sorely missed by all who got a chance to know him. His pallbearers will be nephew and cousins and honorary pallbearers are the lifelong friends of his youth. He is now resting in the arms of the Lord.
