A celebration of the life of Robert Prellwitz, 62, of Minneota, will take place with a visitation from 4-7 pm on Monday, March 29, 2021, at Hope Lutheran Church in Minneota. Visitation will continue one hour prior to the funeral service, from 2 – 3 pm on Tuesday, March 30, 2021, with a 3 pm funeral service, also at Hope Lutheran Church. Interment will take place at Hope Lutheran Cemetery in Minneota. Masks are required at all indoor events and social distancing guidelines will be followed. A recording of the service will be available at www.horvathfuneralservice.com.

Robert “Rob” Jerome Prellwitz was born on October 18, 1958, in Marshall, MN, to Robert and Betty (Leese) Prellwitz. He was baptized and confirmed at Hope Lutheran Church. He grew up around Minneota and graduated from Minneota Public School in 1976. After graduation, Rob went on to Canby Vo-Tech for Diesel Mechanics. His career was being a tiler and backhoe operator. He worked in many farmer’s fields, and occasionally, he would take a drive to see how the tile was working and to check out jobs. Rob was united in marriage to Brenda Jones on May 10, 1980. Their marriage was blessed with two children.

Rob liked people and at times you could hardly get him out of a store without running into someone he knew. Rob had a kind soul; however, he told you like it was. He was very organized and was a perfectionist. Rob enjoyed helping on committees such as the Church Council for Hope Lutheran where he served in numerous roles and duties, as well as The Minnesota Prairie Saddle Club Association, where he served as a President and a Delegate for 20+ years.

Rob was an avid horse rider and was very proud of the local and state awards he and his son Brandon had received. He also loved his farm animals. He loved to hunt pheasant and deer, especially with his family and friends. Deer hunting was a family tradition for many years and will carry on to next generations. He enjoyed pheasant hunting with the “Minneota Bunch.” He also enjoyed fishing with his friend Scott.

Rob enjoyed eating anything that was made for him. His roaster full of popcorn will forever be a memory. He would visit with his mother daily whether it be at her home or over the phone. He also enjoyed visits from his granddaughters.

Rob passed away suddenly and unexpectedly on March 22, 2021.

Rob is survived by his wife, Brenda (Jones) Prellwitz of Minneota; daughter Nicole (Prellwitz) and Jared Longtin of Minneota and their two daughters Laney and Lyla; son Brandon Prellwitz of Minneota; mother Betty (Leese) Prellwitz of Minneota; brother Marty and Heidi Prellwitz of Poolville, TX; brother Owen and Denise Prellwitz of Marshall. He is also survived by many other relatives.

Rob was preceded in death by his father, Robert Arthur Prellwitz; as well as his father-in-law and mother-in-law, Glenn and Irene (Christopherson) Jones. He is also now reunited with his loving horse, Peppy.

Rob will be deeply missed by all his family and friends.
