DuWayne D. Halvorson, 77, of Fargo, ND, formerly of Hitterdal, MN, passed away on Wednesday, October 12, 2022, at Sanford’s Hospice House, Fargo, ND. DuWayne was born October 30, 1944, in Moorhead, MN, to Lloyd and Gudrun Halvorson. DuWayne attended school in Moorhead, Hawley, and Hitterdal. Following high school, DuWayne began working before being drafted in to the U.S. Army. He served from 1965 – 1967 and was stationed in Europe. He enjoyed seeing that part of the world, especially Germany and France. Following his service, DuWayne returned to the area. On September 27, 1968, he married Sheryl Selseth. Together they made their home in Hitterdal and started a family. Over the years, DuWayne spent most of his career as a Heavy Equipment Operator with Fargo Excavating. He enjoyed the work and took pride in it. DuWayne also enjoyed watching Vikings and through it all remained a faithful fan.
