Stanley “Ken” Lahti, 78

Apr 8, 2018

Albert Lea (formerly of Blue Earth) Visitation and a memorial service was held for Ken Lahti on Saturday, April 7 at Concordia Pickerel Lake Lutheran Church, rural Albert Lea. Visitation began at 9:30 a.m., the service followed at 11 a.m.

Ken was born in Herman, Michigan on Nov. 20, 1939 and died on April 3, 2018 at St. Mary’s in Rochester.

Ken was a dedicated public servant. He spent his career in the field of social services, both in direct care and administration.

Retirement didn’t slow him down! In addition to all his projects around the house and working in the garden, Ken enjoyed taking road trips throughout the country to visit family and friends and he was an active member of the Eagles.

While he lived in Minnesota most of his life, he took great pride in his Finnish heritage and his Upper Peninsula Michigan “Yooper” upbringing.

Ken is survived by his wife of 54 years, Dorothy “Dottie” Lahti; his daughter, Kristi (Charles) Lahti-Johnson; son, Michael; sister, Donna; and grandchildren, Emma and Owen Johnson.

In lieu of flowers, memorials preferred to Concordia Pickerel Lake Lutheran Church or to the family.
