Visitation with the family present will be one hour prior to the start of the service. Inurnment will be in the Hillside Cemetery, Egan, SD. On-line condolences may be left at Kahler Funeral Home website.

Todd was born on June 1, 1961 at Worthington, MN, the son of Gerald Dean Fisher and Lillian Mae Fisher (Olson-Troff). He attended Flandreau High School and a technical vocational school as well. Todd worked for Wyland Construction, Co. for several seasons as a truck driver and laborer and Bayliner Boat Company in MN. Todd met Lisa Erickson (Peacock) of Pipestone, MN and married in 1988 (-1990) in Lake Tahoe, NV and resided in CA. Todd worked for the city of Fairfield, CA and ran his own slurry seal business. Todd returned to SD in the late 1990’s where he worked in the neon sign business, drove farm trucks for several local farmers and subsequently started his own neon lighting business. Todd was a skilled mechanic, carpenter, and construction engineer.

Todd was known for his athleticism. He was a talented basketball, baseball and softball player. His passion was fishing. He spent many hours along the banks of the Big Sioux River and several local lakes. When in CA he loved crabbing at Bodega Bay and panning for gold. He was a gardener and antique picker. He was compassionate for the young children, the elderly and animals.

Todd has three daughters, Kasey Fisher, Shelby Sumers and Rachel Bedell. He was so proud of his beautiful daughters. He was able to spend more time with them in the last year of his life. He taught Kasey to trout fish and get through the “gargoyle grass.” Todd’s friends remember him as “one of the funniest guys they ever knew.” He could make the old and the young laugh out loud.

Todd is preceded in death by his mother, Lillian (Olson) Fisher Troff, his step father, Robert Troff and Evelyn Bedell.

Those left to cherish his memory are his daughters, Kasey Fisher of OK, Shelby Summers of CA, Rachel Bedell of OR; his sister, Robin (Fisher) (Jon) Rowe of Kalamazoo, MI; his brother, Rodney Troff of Flandreau; his three nieces, Chelsea Cullen of AZ, Caitlin Cullen of AZ and Natalie Rowe of MI; his cousins, Terry, Mark and Paul Wheeler, Julie Mathias and Eric Erickson, Lisa Fisher and Sonia Lyn Sumers.

Milton Munk

Milton MunkMilton J. Munk, 91, of Dell Rapids died Sunday, August 21, 2016 at the Dells Nursing & Rehab Center.  Memorial services will begin at 10:00 AM Saturday September 10, 2016 at the Lutheran Church of Dell Rapids. Visitation will begin at 9:00 AM at the church. Burial of the ashes of Milton and Audrey Munk will follow the funeral service at the Dell Rapids Cemetery.  On-line condolences may be left at the Minnehaha Funeral Home website. 

Milton James Munk, son of Edna (Artz) and Jesse Munk, was born August 10, 1925 at Dell Rapids. He grew up in the Dell Rapids area and attended country school at the Nelson School. He graduated from Dell Rapids High School in 1944. Milton entered the United States Army in 1945 and was stationed in Germany, being discharged in 1947.

Milton married Audrey Van Briesen on November 17, 1945 at Camp Robinson, Little Rock, Arkansas. The couple made their home in Dell Rapids until 1948 when they moved to a farm northeast of Dell Rapids. In 1969 they moved to Dell Rapids when he went into the livestock and grain trucking and order buying business. He was the recipient of many Livestock Safety Hauling awards. He was on the Board of Directors for the South Dakota Livestock Trucker Association. He retired (the first time) in 1989. He helped his brother, Harold on the farm for a year and later drove truck for Buskerud Construction, Dells Materials, and later for Dells Coop Grain Company. He also helped Bill Klein’s sons with harvest. Since then he retired at least six times.

Over the years Milton was a member of the Lutheran Church of Dell Rapids, the Dell Rapids American Legion and the South Dakota Livestock and Truckers Association.

Milton was an avid sports fan, especially football and the Green Bay Packers, baseball and NASCAR. Milton and Audrey enjoyed some winters in San Benito, Texas. When he wasn’t driving truck, he enjoyed coffee and fellowship with good friends at T & C.

Milton was preceded in death by his loving wife, Audrey who died October 18, 2012, their son, Rick; his brother, Eldon and his wife, Vera and his brother, Harold.

Grateful for having shared his life are his children, Randy (Karen) Munk, Bobby Munk, Candy Munk, Sherry Munk and Peggy Munk; grandchildren, Nathan, Audrey Anna, Andrew, April, Gabriella, Abdul, Wade, Darin, Jennifer, Erin and Holly; nineteen great-grandchildren; many nieces and nephews and his sister-in-law, Gail Bares.

The family requests that memorials be directed to the Dell Rapids American Legion or Compassionate Care Hospice.
