Born July 25, 1912, in rural Forestville, he attended Forestville School and graduated from the eighth grade in 1927. On June 5, 1935, he married Della Henke in Preston. They lived in the Forestville area until 1941 and then in Duluth, where he attended welding school and worked at Zenith/Dredge Shipyard until 1944. He then worked at Orrin Hoopman Welding in Cherry Grove until opening his own repair business in Wykoff in 1945. He studied radio/electronics through mail correspondence with the National Radio Institute, and in 1953, he opened Fetterly Radio/TV, which he operated until his retirement in 1997. Mr. Fetterly served as Wykoff fire chief for many years and was a longtime member of Immanuel Lutheran Church. Survivors include his wife; a son, Duane (Dewey) of Fillmore; two grandsons; and four great-grandchildren. The funeral for Elden Delbert Fetterly was March 19, 2004 at Immanuel Lutheran Church in Wykoff, with the Rev. Donald Flaten officiating. Burial was in Forestville Cemetery.
