Dwayne Charles Grewe passed away peacefully Friday, April 23, 2021 at GlenFields Living with Care in Glencoe, MN. A family memorial service was held at St. Peter’s Lutheran Church – Moltke; to leave online condolence for the family, or to sign the guestbook, visit Dwayne is survived by his sisters, Donna (special friend, Harvey Hagen) Grewe, Karen (William) Templin; Brothers, Wally (Judy) Grewe, Brian (Betty) Grewe; brother-in-law, Phil (special friend, Judi Mohr) Baumel; nieces and nephews, James, Jade (Cynthia) and Justin Templin, Samantha (Steve) Messerli, Andrew Grewe, Miranda Grewe, Anna (JT) Thomas, Erin Main and his great niece, Brenna Templin. He was preceded in death by his parents Melvin and Verna, sister Sharon Baumel and great niece April Templin. Dwayne Charles Grewe was born November 6, 1940 to Melvin and Verna (Sell) Grewe in New Ulm, MN. He graduated from Gibbon High School and then Mankato State University, playing baseball at each. Dwayne taught history and coached baseball at Arlington/Green Isle High School, along the way playing town ball for the Gibbon Reds and Arlington A’s. He had a strong love for the game and coaching youth teams. After his teaching career he pursued many other professions. However the love of history stayed with him. He enjoyed History Channel, anything about Alaska and sports including Twins, Vikings and Tennis. Dwayne had a genuine interest in any news of his nephews, nieces and great niece and what was happening in Gibbon. He was a dog lover and always asked about any of the family’s pets, listening to the antics and stories with interest and a big smile. Dwayne was baptized, confirmed and was a life long member of St Peter’s Lutheran Church – Moltke. As his health begin to fail him, he moved into GlenFields Living with Care. The last year due to COVID it was tough not being able to see family. Dwayne kept a good attitude and family corresponded through the mail, email, phone, window visits (brrr!) and when some visitation was available, Skype doing face to face. Dwayne will be missed by those who knew him and blessed be his memory. Memorials in care of St. Peter’s Lutheran Church Cemetery Committee, the Gibbon Reds Baseball Association or Allina Hospice.
