I took Lavern flying one day. We flew over 20 farms in the area and he could describe their History, relationships and interesting things. He never spoke disparagingly about anyone. Always was kind. I have often said to myself, I wish I could be more like Lavern. We can all learn about basis goodness from him. Bless his memory. Harvey Wollman

LaVern Stahl... I have known him from childhood. Attended the same church and went to youth groups. Lavern was a wonderful guy. Kid and Tootie you lost someone that cannot be replaced you only have my memories. Sure you have many. God be close to all. I am sure he's Heaven bound. Sieglinda Pullman Roth

Last week we lost my favorite Uncle LaVerne Stahl. He was like a brother to me. LaVerne picked me up when I was first born in Rapid City, he had traveled all the way from Huron and back to pick up Phoebe and Pyrle with me in tow. We were very close our entire lives and he will be missed so very much. We had all the same likes old cars, old motorcycles and attending auctions and buying trailer loads of stuff we never used, so the only way to get rid of it was to give it to our family. He could fix anything on a tractor or a car. As most of you know I got my passion for Indian motorcycles from Uncle LaVerne. He had gotten one as a young man and ended up having to hide it in the barn from his mom Anna and father Josh. I wonder whatever happened to that motorcycle?  I also have many fond memories of enjoying lunch at Phoebe's burgers and a great bowl of soup, guaranteed to go along with the great company. The memories I carry of LaVerne will be with me forever. He was a standup man and never failed to put a smile on your face. It was a pleasure just hanging out with him. You will be missed very much little millionaire. I love you, say hi to Mom and Dad and we shall meet again. Percy Stahl

Sincere sympathy to Angie and her entire family. Darcy Harford

LaVerne, the lil millionaire, we will miss you my friend. Such a great mentor to Jimmie growing up, sure passed his love of auctions, old cars and tractors on to him and the ability to fix just about anything with a lil duct tape! We will miss seeing you at the car shows and kids basketball games - rest in peace my friend, til we meet again someday! Karla and James Hofer

Now there was a man! Our annual tractor show will not be the same without him. And what will Butchie do without him? But our loss is heaven's gain, and we thank our dear Lord for LaVern's example of faith and life in Christ. My grandson, Danny Reinschmidt of Roseville, MN, also sends his condolences. He too valued LaVern's warm friendship. I have a picture of Danny and LaVern driving their Cub Cadet 125s in the HAAPA parade (of course Butchie was riding with LaVern). God bless you, Mrs, Stahl. You're in our prayers. Rev. Howard M Reinschmidt
