Robert “Bob” Donald Hoenk died peacefully at home in the care of his family, on December 4, 2022, at the age of 92. Bob was one of four children born to Alvin W. Hoenk and Ida A. Sell near Potsdam, MN on May 2, 1930. He attended rural and parochial schools through 7th grade and eventually graduated 8th grade from Corras Rural School near Viola, MN. From there, he made the choice to stay at home and farm with his father. At the age of 15, he paid 25ȼ at the License Bureau to get his driver’s license and had a great time kicking up his heels with friends. Two years later he purchased his first car, a 1940 Chevy Business Coup for $600 cash. On May 19, 1950, he married his partner for a lifetime, Lavonne “Bonnie” L. Parker, at Trinity Lutheran Church in Elgin, Minnesota. They rented a 234-acre farm one mile south of Elgin which they eventually purchased once they saved enough money. This was where Bob farmed and raised livestock, and where he and Bonnie raised their six children. In 1984, he stopped farming and took a job with Elgin’s City Maintenance, working for 13 years until semi-retirement, and after that worked various part-time jobs like meat packing at Lakeside in Plainview, driving tractor, hauling fertilizer, and repairing rental equipment. The couple moved from the Elgin farm to Pine Island, Minnesota in 2001, where they lived for 14 years, until moving to SE Rochester in 2015.
