Kenneth Charles Lindstrom, of Mora, formerly of Hugo, passed away on Tuesday, September 25, 2018 at the North Memorial Hospital in Robbinsdale. He was 75 years old.
Kenneth was born on March 22, 1943 in Duluth, Minnesota to parents Oscar and Wilhelmina (Thorsell) Lindstrom. Ken attended school in Duluth, graduating from Duluth Central High School in 1961. He went on to earn a Bachelor of Arts in Education from the University of Minnesota- Duluth. Ken spent the majority of his teaching career in the White Bear Lake school district, teaching 6th grade math.
On August 2, 1969, Ken was united in marriage to Cynthia Lynn Billstrom at the Sandstone Congregational church. They made their home in Hugo and were blessed with 2 children, Kimberly and Todd. In 1996, Ken and Cindy moved to a home on Fish Lake in Mora. Ken retired in 1999 after teaching for 33 years. Ken and Cindy enjoyed retirement by taking trips to the north shore and Lake Superior with their beloved dogs. In 2015, they moved to the Villages Apartments in Mora.
Ken loved the outdoors; fishing and camping. He was an avid sports fan, especially football and baseball–cheering for the Minnesota Vikings and Twins. Ken liked to play card games, excelling at smear and cribbage. Throughout his life, Ken had a strong faith and was active in his church communities at the Shephard of the Fields in Hugo, South Shore Trinity in White Bear Lake, and Zion Lutheran in Mora. Most of all Ken loved his family and the time spent with his children and grandchildren. Ken will be remembered for his kindness, patience, and huge heart. He will be dearly missed.
