April 25, 1952 – July 24, 2020

Tebbe Eugene DeBoer, 68, died Friday, July 24th, after a battle with cancer. He was blessed to be able to be with many of his family in the last few days.

Tebbe was born April 25, 1952, to Maxine and Sydney DeBoer in Austin, MN. He was raised in Austin and graduated from Austin High School in 1970.

After graduation, he married his high school sweetheart, Sharene Wilke on June 9, 1973. They built their life together, welcoming Jacob in 1979; Zachary in 1982; and Samuel in 1987.

Tebbe worked the majority of his career-life for National Car Rental and Electronic Data Systems. After his beloved wife Shari died in 2000, he worked a variety of jobs in the Northfield, MN area.

Tebbe enjoyed Rendezvousing, fishing, riding his Harley, traveling, and spending time with family. Over the last many months, Jacob’s family was fortunate to have Tebbe in their home, building memories with his three grandchildren.

Tebbe is survived by his sons: Jacob (Trisha) of Steele, ND, Zachary and Samuel, both of Saint Michael; grandchildren: Luke, Zane, and Kate; siblings: Shirley (Bob) Grathwohl, Gloria (Mel) Jendersee, Brian (Daryl) Beadle, Diana (Bob) Novotny, and numerous nieces and nephews.

Memorials may be directed to the Mayo Clinic, the American Cancer Society or a charity of your choice.

    Uncle Tebbe was an honourable man, a great uncle, and a fantastic supporter of encouraging everyone to live “their best life” (although he would’ve said ‘do what you love’). He will be greatly missed, but he is now resting well with Aunt Shar, my father (who I am quite certain said ‘hey buddy… how ‘about a fish’? upon his arrival). Watch over us with everyone else up there during this craziness of 2020-life now. Send us all good wishes; need need all the help we can get
    Love you, Ange

    We are very sorry for your loss. Tebbe will be greatly missed by our family. He was an amazing man. Him and Shari were very great friends of ours when we were in high school. And when we were all first married. And he was also a big part of our children’s lives. There are alot of great memories we will cherish forever. Our thoughts and Prayer’s are with the whole family. Dennis, Janice, Tina, Mindy, and Andy Ball.
