    Laverne Norcutt, the son of Chester and Hattie (Otto) Norcutt, was born September 8, 1928 on the family farm near Lucan. Laverne graduated from Redwood Falls High School. In 1950, Laverne was drafted into the US Army. He was awarded the Purple Heart and two Bronze Stars of Valor for his service during the Korean War.
    On March 6, 1954, Laverne married Olga Konpelien in Roseau. The family resided in Roseau until moving to Redwood Falls in 1955. They moved to North Redwood in 1960 and the couple has lived there since. Laverne was employed as a truck driver by Redwood Ready Mix. He was an avid outdoorsman who loved hunting, fishing, gardening and cutting wood. Most of all he loved spending time with his family.
    Laverne is survived by his wife of 59 years, Olga of Redwood Falls; sons Ron and Boyd of Redwood Falls, Owen (Jean) of Woodbury, and Steven (Natalie) of Maple Grove; 10 grandchildren and five great-grandchildren.   
    He was preceded in death by his parents, Chester and Hattie Norcutt.

    Blessed be his memory.
