Linus John Bonfig was born March 11, 1927 in Freeport, Minnesota to Edward and Barbara (Kleve) Bonfig. Before retiring, Loppy farmed the Bonfig family homestead outside of Freeport. He enjoyed spending time with family and friends, loved playing cards, and traveling to the nearby casinos. But his two favorite pastimes were fishing and baseball. Loppy’s wonderful sense of humor, storytelling abilities, love of people and his lifelong flirtation with all the ladies will surely be missed.
He leaves behind many nieces, nephews, great and great-great nieces and nephews. To his family he was our “Uncle Loppy”.
Loppy was preceded in death by his parents, Barbara and Edward Bonfig; five siblings, Eleanor “Toodie” Wimmer, Lucille “Sis” Eiynck/Hinnenkamp, Doloris “Mooky” Gerdes, Victor “Vic” Bonfig, and Marie Elisabeth (who died at birth); brother-in-laws, sister-in-law, and other relatives.
In lieu of flowers, memorials are preferred to Park View Apartments in Melrose.
