Arthur Twedt

March 13, 1929 — November 17, 2020

On Tuesday, November 17, 2020, Arthur Raynold Twedt, 91 of Fergus Falls, MN went to be with the Lord peacefully with his wife by his side.
Art, as he was best known, was born on March 13, 1929 in McHenry, ND, to Knut and Thelma (Hogie) Twedt. He was baptized on April 7, 1929 and confirmed on September 24, 1944, and attended the Colvin School as well as Eddy County Schools. On June 30, 1955, he married his wife, Velda (Vilhauer) Twedt in Highmore, SD, and the two raised four children on their family farm, Virgil, Roger, Gerald, and Marlys near rural McHenry, ND.

Art was a farmer by trade and hobby as he was gifted with a passion for agriculture. He was very active in their church, Gethsemane Lutheran Church of Tolna, ND, and had a personal relationship with Jesus which he made sure to share with others. After moving to Fergus Falls, MN in 2000, Art and Velda became very active at Calvary Free Lutheran Church. Art enjoyed spending time with family and friends and taking Pontoon rides on the lake. Art was a very humble man, but he certainly took pride in the accomplishments and talents of his 28 grandchildren and in more recent years getting to know and seeing photos of his 36 great-grandchildren and taking in their sporting events.

Art is preceded in death by his father and mother, along with his sisters Isabel Johnson and Agnes Howard, and nephew John Howard. He is survived by his loving wife, Velda; his children, Virgil and Wendy Twedt of Bullard, TX, Roger and Amy Twedt of Fergus Falls, MN, Gerald and Beverly Twedt of McHenry, ND, and Marlys and Don Quam of Fergus Falls, MN; brothers, Gordon (Ardis) Twedt of McHenry, ND and Marcus Twedt of Tolna, ND, and also many nieces, nephews, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren.
