Raymond Halvor Dahl, age 73, of Battle Lake and a long-time resident of Twin Valley, died peacefully at home surrounded by his family and loving wife of 51 years, Marjorie, on September 20, 2004, after a short, yet courageous battle with cancer.

Ray was born on October 29, 1930, at home in Syre, MN. He was a 1948 graduate of Twin Valley High School. On March 8, 1952, he married Marjorie Eken at Wild Rice Lutheran Church. He served in the Armed Forces as a cook in Korea from 1953 to 1955. Ray farmed near Syre for nearly 30 years, retiring from farming in 1977, and went to work for Great Plains Lumber in 1978, then Lutheran Memorial Nursing Home in 1982, retiring in 2000. Ray was a longtime member of the Legion and VFW.

Ray loved and was dedicated to his family and his devoted wife. Ray and Marjorie enjoyed traveling and visiting their children and grandchildren. They were able to spend the past several winters in Texas, enjoying the warm breezes, visiting Mexico, golfing, swimming, and dancing the night away. Ray was a talented carpenter, with many of his creations currently being enjoyed by his children, grandchildren and friends. Ray loved the outdoors and the serenity of camping and fishing. Ray was a man of many talents---he could fix anything, make a long putt or two every round of golf, was hard to beat at pool, and enjoyed helping Marjorie in the kitchen. Ray loved to spend time with his grandchildren and be involved in their activities, and they loved him for being there.

Ray will be greatly missed, yet always dearly loved and remembered by his wife Marjorie; daughters, Sherlyn Dahl (Arne Haines) of Fargo, Saundra Larson (Dale) of Bloomington, Stacy Hein (Sheldon) of Battle Lake; son, Steven Dahl (Karen) of Sioux Falls, SD; grandchildren, Derrik Thune (Lori), Shaun Thune (Emily), Kelly Vanderheydt (Jerry), Dax Larson, Ben Dahl, Leslie Dahl, Morgan Hein and Britney Hein, great-grandchildren, Jonathan Kelm, Devon Vanderheydt, Blake Thune; brother, Alton Dahl (Marie) of Indianapolis and many other friends and relatives.

Ray was preceded in death by parents, Ananias (AO) and Marie Dahl; sisters, Ruth, Gladys, Lillian; brothers, Judien, Sam, and Gerhard.
