Robert George Treptau, age 55 of Corcoran, Minnesota, passed away May 3, 2021.
Rob was born October 11, 1965 in Robbinsdale, Minnesota as the fifth and youngest child to William and Joann (Richardson) Treptau. He grew up in Corcoran, and graduated with the Class of 1985 from Rockford High School, and worked various machine repair/construction/food service jobs in the Corcoran area.
Rob had a kind and gentle heart, with a bit of orneriness that seems to come naturally in the Treptau line. He loved his family, and enjoyed all the large family gatherings, even if he did more observing than taking part in all the conversations.
He was proud of his small town, and helped out when he could support the community. He enjoyed fishing area lakes and was a good cook, and always contributed food when family and friends got together.
He had a soft spot for animals, and especially loved his German Shepherds: Sooner, Later and Roxanne were his devoted companions over the years, and he always seemed to be leaving food out for any stray cats.
Rob is preceded in death by his parents, William and Joann. He is survived by his siblings, Michael (Theresa), Scott (Marie), Andrea (Darren) Heairet, and Daniel (Deb); 25 nieces and nephews, 11 grandnieces and grandnephews, and other relatives and friends.
