Mass of Christian Burial for Dale Kontz, 84, of Minneota will be held at 10:00 a.m. on Saturday, May 1, 2021, at St. Edward Catholic Church in Minneota. Interment will follow the service at Sts. Cyril and Methodius Catholic Cemetery in Taunton.

Dale Raymond Kontz was born on the family farm near Elkton, South Dakota, to Arnold and Loretta Kontz on November 16, 1936. He was the seventh child in a family of nine including four brothers and four sisters. Dale attended Hillcrest country school for eight years, and then Ivanhoe High School. He lived in Minneapolis, Mankato, Canby, and for the last many years in Minneota.

As a boy growing up on the family farm, Dale helped with the milking and field work. He loved playing cards and board games, riding bicycles, and later his motor scooter, which he rode everywhere. He was a very religious man, and God was a very real and important part of his life. He always attended church and Christmas was his favorite holiday.

Dale died on January 14, 2021, at the Minneota Manor. Dale is preceded in death by his parents Arnold and Loretta; brothers Laurel, Bob, Frank, and Wayne; and sisters Margie (Pesch) and Donna (Verschelde).

He is survived by sisters Claretta (Keimig) of Prior Lake and Betty (DePhilippis) and husband Greg of Canby. He is also survived by many nieces, nephews, great nieces and nephews, and cousins.
