Dan Alan Ziebarth of Mora died peacefully in his home on Sunday, May 19, 2019 with his wife at his side. He was 69 years old.
He was born on Sept. 28, 1949 in Minneapolis to Ralph and Margaret Ziebarth.
He was united in marriage to Jane (Pearson) on Sept. 11, 1976 in Grasston.
Years of construction and driving semi were his main occupations. There wasn’t a piece of equipment he could not run, or at least jump into it and figure it out quick.
He had a love for the outdoors. He spent countless hours fishing, hunting and keeping the yards looking like a golf course. He would slow down and have us all salute any John Deere dealer we drove by. He had a deep love for the guy’s hunting shack and all the time spent there playing cribbage and sitting around the bonfire.
He was preceded in death by both his parents.
He is survived by his wife; his lifelong friend and brother-in-law Rick Winfield; his son Dondi Cox (Grasston); daughter Callymarie (Jamie) Hanson of Mora; son Clinton Ziebarth (St. Francis); and grandchildren Samantha, Analia, Noah and Sophia.
In keeping with Dan’s wishes, no formal service will be held. A celebration of life to be held at future date is being determined.
A special thanks to St. Croix Hospice for all of their support and care over the past few months; Dad’s doctor Matthew Allen and his nurse Jess from FirstLight Health Systems in Mora; along with all the other doctors and nurses in Mora. Community meant the world to Dan, and our community in the past months has been the same for us. Thank you to Methven Funeral Home for all of their services and especially to Ryan for how caring and compassionate you were during the process. Thank you!
