Dale Jerome Niesen, 59, Cannon Falls, died peacefully at a friend's home on Thursday morning, January 24, 2013.
Dale was born at home on July 3, 1953 in Douglas Township, MN, the son of Leonard M. and Florence E. (Case) Niesen. He graduated from Cannon Falls High School in 1971 and went on to do custom farming for area farmers. Most recently, he was employed in maintenance at Angels Care Center in Cannon Falls.
Dale was devoted to his friends, and truly enjoyed spending time with them, whether it was at work or just around town. He also enjoyed playing in the annual New Year's horseshoe tourney. He had a soft spot in his heart for his mother, and for his animals, especially Squeek, Sigfried, and Ajax.
He is survived by his brother, John (Rita) Niesen of Ellsworth, WI; sister, Nancy Cohn of Florida; nephews and niece, Chris (Jee) Niesen, Courtney Niesen, and Scott Aase; two great-nephews; special friend, Kathy Gerbracht of Cannon Falls, special cousins, Ray and Peg Bohn of Eagan; and other relatives and many friends.
