Jeffrey Dahring

Nov. 29, 1955-May 7, 2014

Jeffrey Keith Dahring, 58, of Detroit Lakes, died Wednesday, May 7, 2014 at Vibra Hospital in Fargo.

Jeff, the son of Richard and Jeanne (Wagner) Dahring, was born on November 29, 1955 in Detroit Lakes. He was raised and educated in Detroit Lakes, graduating from Detroit Lakes High School in 1974.

After high school he began his lifetime career, becoming a partner on the family farm with his mother and brother, Jerry. Jeff definitely enjoyed his life on the farm. As Paul Harvey said, "So God made a farmer," and Jeff was one of those farmers.

Jeff enjoyed fishing, tinkering with his tractors and taking part in the family picnics. His family was his main priority and spending time with them was something he always cherished, especially with his nieces and nephews.

Jeff's father preceded him in death.
