Obituary for John R. Theis

John R. Theis, age 79, of Shakopee, entered eternal life on Friday, January 11, 2019.

John was the first baby born at St. Francis Hospital in Shakopee, on June 13, 1939, the son of Alois and Rosanna (Breeggemann) Theis. He married Delores Hartmann on November 11, 1961, at St. Michael Catholic Church in Prior Lake.

John loved being a dairy farmer. He also enjoyed fishing, and in his younger years hunting pheasant, duck and deer. He also liked playing cards and the dice game "Farkle" with friends and family.

John would shine when he was with his grandkids. He would drive them around in his Kubota, take them out panfishing with his pontoon on Thole Lake.......whatever the grandkids wanted to do!

Survived by wife, Delores; sons, Dave, Ron (Michele Helgemo), Mike (Kim), Rick (Nichole), and Ted (Shannon); grandchildren, Curt and Melissa, Courtney, Spencer and Logan, Nicholas and Trevor, Chloe and Dillon; great-grandchildren, Payton and Easton; brothers, Valentine (Kathy) and James (Eileen). Preceded by infant son, Nicholas; parents, Alois and Rosanna; daughter-in-law, Laurie.
