Lowell Leonard Strombeck, of Mora, Minnesota, passed away on Tuesday, October 15, 2019 at Walker Methodist Levande in Cambridge. He was 86 years old.

Lowell was born to parents Emil and Ann (Irene) Strombeck on June 5, 1933 in St. Paul, MN. During his childhood he lived in Minneapolis, Estes Brook, and then Mora where he resided near the family farm for the rest of his life. He enjoyed living on the farm in Mora and spent many hours driving and working the fields on either a team of horses or a tractor.

In 1953, at the age of 19, Lowell was drafted into the Korean War where he served for two years. Upon his discharge he returned to Mora where he met, fell in love with, and married Elaine Carlson. They were married for 32 years, from 1958 until Elaine’s death in 1991. During this time, Lowell worked at a variety of companies in the Mora area until he accepted a job at Onan in Fridley, MN as a sheet metal specialist; he worked there for 24 years until retiring in 1996. Lowell married Margaret (Bankers) Hedstrom in 1995; they were married for 24 years until her death in April of 2019.

Lowell’s greatest passion in life was being a farmer; he always had plans to retire ‘next year’. He loved to drive and maintain his many tractors and array of farm equipment. Lowell was also dedicated to improving his land which took the form of contouring his fields for optimal production, ‘landscaping’ his property with ponds and a bridge, and planting hundreds of trees.

He is survived by his children, Karla Strombeck, Karen (Dennis) Freed, Kathy Eymann, Keith (Kelly) Strombeck; step-children, Kale (Diane) Hedstrom, Tara Rushing, Neff (Geneva) Hedstrom, Hoyle (Rickey) Walls; 11 grandchildren, 8 step-grandchildren, 4 great grandchildren, 8 step great-grandchildren; sister Pepper Walker; brother Delano (LuAnn) Strombeck; many nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.
