Allen Wayne Kuhnert was born on July 4, 1952, to Orville and Betty (Schmidt) Kuhnert on the farm in rural Brandon, SD. Allen was one of seven children. He attended school in Brandon. When he finished with school, Allen worked on to family farm for a few years before going to work for Luverne Truck Equipment. After four years, he moved on the work for Skyberg Construction and Fencing where he worked for approximately 30 years before his health caused him to retire.
Allen was a quiet person who kept to himself but enjoyed being with his circle of friends and family. During his younger years, he enjoyed going out to shoot pool with his friends and have a few brews. Later, he spent many hours in his garden growing produce to take to his neighbors and family and canning for the winter. He loved to have company over to hang out with and visit.
Allen will be deeply missed by his six siblings, Gloria Kelderman, Brandon, Jerry (Marie) Kuhnert, Valley Springs, Della (Mark) Wiese, Brandon, John (Sally) Kuhnert, Brandon, Jack Kuhnert, Brandon, and Donna (Marty) Barber, Brandon; and many nieces, nephews, and cousins.
Allen was preceded in death by his parents and one brother-in-law, Butch Kelderman.
