Memorial services for Harold K. Kjeldahl will be held on Saturday, November 19, 2022 at 10:30 a.m. at Trinity Lutheran Church in Cyrus. Reverend Christopher Richards will be officiating. Visitation will be one hour prior to services at the church.

Harold Kenneth Kjeldahl, son of Silas and Ella (Fauskee) Kjeldahl, was born November 1, 1926, rural Brooten, MN. He was united in marriage on November 19, 1949, to Margaret Iverson in Barrett, MN. Following their marriage, they made their home in Cyrus, MN where they raised their three children.

Harold worked at many jobs over the years.  At the age of 14, he made his first trip from rural Morris to South St. Paul with a load of livestock for Jesness Trucking.  He had his own trucking company as well.  He was a member of the local 49ers Union and worked many years at road construction throughout many areas within Minnesota. Having a small farm south of Cyrus he worked countless week-end hours growing and selling potatoes.  Upon his retirement from road work, he continued to work side by side with Margaret on her mail route. He was a member of Scandia Lutheran Free Church and Trinity Lutheran Church in Cyrus, MN. He was co-founder of the West Central Snowmobile club.  He loved to be snowmobiling locally, trips to South Dakota and Wyoming. He enjoyed visiting friends he had made through his many years of road construction, community members and relatives.  He shared countless prayer shawls to all he visited with that could use comfort.

Harold died on Wednesday, November 9, 2022, at the Minnewaska Lutheran Home in Starbuck, having reached the age of 96 years.

He is survived by his three children, Jeanne Kjeldahl of Brooklyn Park, Kenneth (Elaine) Kjeldahl of Barrett and Joy Kjeldahl (Steve Solfest) of Bloomington; four granddaughters: Sara, Lori (Jake), Amy and Kari; seven great-grandsons: Robert, Alex, Tyler, Shane, Keaton, Caydon and Jackson and many cousins, nieces and nephews. 

He was preceded in death by Margaret, his wife of 58 years, his parents and 5 siblings.
