Marlin Edwin Affeldt, age 81, of Wykoff, Minn., died Tuesday, January 12, 2016, at his home in Wykoff.

Marlin was born November 17, 1934, in Fountain Township, Fillmore County, Minnesota, to Edwin and Sophia (Horstman) Affeldt. He was baptized and confirmed at St. Johns Lutheran Church in Wykoff. He attended country school in grades 1 – 4, then Chatfield Schools, 5 – 6, and was a 1953 graduate of Wykoff Public School. He married Margaret Eichstadt on September 28, 1958, at St. Johns Lutheran Church in Wolsey, S. Dakota. He was a can milk hauler for several years and also drove school bus. He farmed with his father on the family dairy farm near Fountain, Minn., until 1966 when his parents moved to Wykoff. He and his wife and children continued to farm until 1988 when he sold the dairy herd and rented out the land. He sold the farm land in 1994 but continued to live on the farm. He worked at the Bicknese Elevator in Wykoff from 1989 – 1994. The couple moved to Wykoff in 1996. He worked at AFC in Chatfield for several years and the All-American Co-op in Stewartville for two years. He also worked at Don’s IGA in Spring Valley for two years. In 2003 he began working as a courier for Security State Bank in Wykoff for six years. He also worked at the Preston Tourism Center for one summer.

He was a lifelong member of St. John Lutheran Church in Wykoff and held many offices there. He was on a church bowling league for many years. He enjoyed going deer hunting for many years in northern Minnesota, visiting with people and spending time with his family. He was in a monthly card club all his married life. He also enjoyed going to high school volleyball and basketball games, especially when his children and grandchildren were playing. He was a Vikings fan and an avid Twins fan.

Marlin is survived by his wife, Margaret; two daughters, Julianne (Robert) Rowe of Fillmore and Lorianne (Scott) Kellogg of Fountain; two sons, Gene (fiancé, Lori Oehlke) Affeldt of Wykoff and Douglas Affeldt of Wykoff; eight grandchildren; six great-grandchildren with two more expected; two sisters, Margaret Bradbury of Rochester and Marion (Vince) Olson of Spring Valley; and many nieces and nephews.
