Leroy Fredrick Stern
Stern, Leroy Fredrick 87, of Dayton, MN, passed away peacefully on November 19th, 2022. Leroy is preceded in death by his father and mother, August and Hulda Stern; son, Mark Stern; daughter-in-law, Della Stern; grandson, Jeffrey Stern. Leroy was a hard-working, devoted husband and family man to his wife of 63 years, Selma (Sally), and their five children. Born on February 22, 1935, Leroy was a lifelong resident of Dayton where he lived with Sally on their farm until his passing. Leroy had a strong work ethic. He served two years in the Army, worked as a butcher at Osseo Meats for 25 years, and was employed by the Osseo School District for 19 years. Although he had a quiet presence about him, Leroy enjoyed spending time talking and laughing with his family and friends, always welcoming anyone who stopped by the farm to visit. Although he had a stoic exterior, Leroy was an "old softy" on the inside, showing his affection by playfully teasing those he loved. Leroy is survived by his loving wife Sally; four sons Jeff, Rick, Aaron (Jessica), Andy (Bethany), and daughter Pauline (Joe); six grandsons and six great-grandchildren. The funeral service will be held at Mount Olive Lutheran Church, 700 Western Street, Anoka, MN, on Saturday, November 26, 2022 at 11 am. Visitation begins at 9 am.
