Kenneth Wilbur Bottolfsen
January 10, 1932 - October 26, 2019

Place of Birth: Minneapolis, MN

Age: 87

Kenneth “Kenny” Bottolfsen, 87, of Williston, passed away peacefully, Saturday, October 26, 2019 at his residence surrounded by his family.

Kenneth “Kenny” Wilbur Bottolfsen was born January 10, 1932 in Minneapolis, MN. Son of Antone and Irene (Erickson) Bottolfsen. Kenny was raised and educated in Minneapolis.
At the age of 19, Kenny joined the US Marines. He served in the Korea Conflict and was honorably discharged in 1953. From the moment you walked into his home you could tell a Marine lived there. A patriotic wreath hanging at the front door, to his man cave that proudly displayed a collection of military memorabilia throughout the room. If you asked him about his service or collection, his passion would show.
Kenny married Myrna Hannegrefs in Minneapolis, MN on November 27, 1974. He worked at Honeywell in Minneapolis for over 40 years. He retired and the family decided to move to Williston in 1991 where they have resided since.
He enjoyed all sports especially watching his favorite teams the Minnesota Twins and Vikings. He was always up for a good game of cards, fishing, the casino and dancing. He was a member of the Williston Moose Lodge.
Kenny is survived by his wife of 45 years, Myrna; daughter, Kelly (Sam) Thome; son, Tom Bottolfsen; granddaughter Samantha Thome; grandson, Sheldon Thome; sister, Marion Zurek; nieces and nephews.
He is preceded in death by his parents; sister, Virginia Buck; brother, Robert Bottolfsen; and granddaughter, Danielle Brooks.
