October 15, 1940 ~ May 12, 2022 (age 81)


Gene G. Honl, age 81 of Sandstone, Minnesota died peacefully on Thursday, May 12, 2022.  Gene was born October 15, 1940, the son of Joseph and Anna Honl.  As a young man, he learned the importance of a strong work ethic by helping with chores and various jobs on the family farm.  That work ethic continued throughout his life.  He moved to Cleveland, Ohio at a young age and began his career in construction, later moved back to the Fargo, North Dakota area before settling in the North Branch, Minnesota area.  Throughout his life, he never turned away from working and providing for himself.  When his health began to fail, he moved to Serenity Courts Assisted Living in Sandstone, Minnesota.  Gene is preceded in death by his parents, siblings Andrew, Junette Willprecht, Donald, Harold, Betty Honl; sisters-in-law Glenda, Janice, and brother-in-law Donald Willprecht.  He is survived by siblings LaVerne, Elroy (Jeannie), Barbara (Roger) Buske, Connie (Dave) Hansen, Larry (Penny); dear friends and caregivers Wendy and Shawn Groshens; many nieces, nephews, and friends.  A private memorial for family will be held at a later time.
