Edmund “Eddie” Joseph Duevel was born March 19, 1931 in Melrose, Minnesota to Joseph, Sr. and Helen (Schmidt) Duevel.  Eddie served in the U.S. Army from 1957 to 1959 and was stationed in Germany.  Upon his return, he was a self-employed can and bulk milk truck driver for the Sauk Centre Creamery.  He married Mary Jane Zimmermann on May 5, 1962 at St. Anthony of Padua Catholic Church.  In 1966, Eddie and Mary Jane purchased a dairy farm five miles south of Sauk Centre.  Eddie had a passion for farming and enjoyed every aspect of it.  He never really retired.  Once his two sons took over the farm, he enjoyed spending time with his grandchildren and going to the Sauk Centre Truck Stop almost every morning for coffee.  He continued helping his sons on the farm until the last few years.  Eddie was a member of St Paul’s Catholic Church and Catholic United Financial.

He is survived by his four children, Robert of Oakdale, Mary Kay (Mike) of Lakeville, John of Sauk Centre, and Thomas of Sauk Centre; grandchildren, Caroline, Claire and Matthew O’Connor; sister, Lorraine Schmidt; and many nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.

Eddie was preceded in death by his wife Mary Jane, parents; brothers, Ervin, Joseph and Jerome Duevel and sister, Bernice Kuefler.

Eddie’s family would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to the doctors, nurses, and staff at the St Cloud VA for the kind and compassionate care that was given to him.
