Dallas Wesley Knodel

August 9, 1937 — June 30, 2021

Dallas Wesley Knodel, 83, of Dilworth, MN, passed away on Wednesday, June 30, 2021, at Villa Maria Nursing Home, Fargo, ND.

Dallas was born on August 9, 1937, to Gust and Kathryn (Schatz) Knodel, in Chaseley, ND. He was raised and worked on the family farm in rural Fessenden, ND, until 1965 when he moved to Dilworth, MN. He was united in marriage to Geraldine Mae Reimche on May 14th, 1966, and they were married for 55 years. He began his construction career at FM Asphalt where he worked for nearly 40 years. He finished his career working for Loren Richards Trucking until his retirement at 79 years old.

Dallas loved his pets and enjoyed outdoor activities such as driving around the countryside in his pickup truck, driving his 4-wheeler, tractors, mowing, snowmobiling, and fixing things. The highlight of his week was going out to eat on Saturday nights. He was especially proud of his two children and two grandchildren.

Dallas is survived by his beloved wife, Geraldine; sons, Myron (Doreen) Knodel and Mike Knodel; grandchildren, Sarah and Jacob Knodel; and sisters, Betty Hirschkorn and DeLila Hirsch. He was preceded in death by his parents, Gust and Kathryn.
