Delmer L. Bloomquist, 80
Blue Earth – Delmer LeRoy Bloomquist passed away Feb. 10, 2021, at his home, at the age of 80. Born in Hudson, South Dakota, Delmer was the oldest of three children born to Alven and Ellan (Ring) Bloomquist.
Delmer most enjoyed being outside. He worked as a farm hand for many years, and then, later in life, enjoyed running his own mowing and snow removal business. Delmer could often be found swapping stories and catching up with friends, whether it be at the local watering hole or his familiar chair seated in front of his house. His friendly disposition and helpful nature made him a treasure to many.
Delmer is survived by his wife of nearly 50 years, Shirley (Conant) Bloomquist, of Blue Earth; daughter, Gail (Randy) Lorenz, of Redwood; sister, Sandy Boyd, of Elmore; brother, Ronald (Sheila) Bloomquist, of Tontan; two grandchildren; one great-grandson; and many nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his parents; and son, Delmer Jr.
A Celebration of Life is being planned for spring.
