Roger David Bremseth, age 88 of Buffalo, MN, passed away March 27, 2023.

He was born on December 19, 1934 in Lanesboro, Minnesota to Alvin and Stella (Larson) Bremseth. Roger graduated from high school in 1953, and not long after, he enlisted to serve in the United States Army. He was inducted on October 6, 1954 and proudly served until he was honorably discharged in 1957. He then attended Dunwoody College and became a machinist.

He was joined in marriage to Margaret Juliana Matti on February 27, 1965 in Minneapolis. Together they raised two children, Greg and Julie. He was employed at Washington Scientific Industries and proudly retired after serving 40 years with the company.

Roger was a devoted member of Zion Lutheran Church. His strong faith encouraged him to be active with his church community, and he was always willing to lend a helping hand with church events. Roger was known for his kind and generous heart. He was blessed with a great sense of humor and had a quick wit. He easily made friends with his natural ability to have conversations and he genuinely cared about how others were doing.   He was an avid sports enthusiast, and enjoyed cheering on all the Minnesota teams– especially the University of Minnesota Gophers. Roger spent as much free time as he could outside working on projects around his farm to stay active and busy, and he also enjoyed golfing.

Along with his faith, his family was an important part of his life. The best was yet to come when he became a grandpa and great-grandpa. He made sure to attend and support all of their activities, especially their sporting events.

He is preceded in death by his wife, Margaret; parents, Alvin and Stella; brothers, Arden, Syrald, Alvin Jr., Carroll, Wally, and Charles; and sisters, Judy Faey, Marlice Olstad, Lois Peterson, Eleanor Peterson and Neoma Youngquist.

Roger is survived by his children, Gregory Bremseth and Juliana (Jason) DeMarre; grandchildren, Angela (Colten) LaChance, Owen Bremseth, Anna DeMarre, and Austin DeMarre; great-grandchildren, Amilia and Alivia LaChance; siblings, James (Janet) Bremseth, Phyllis Kvitrud, and Rebecca Sandness; and many other relatives and friends.
