      Alvin L. Rosentreter, age 87, a lifelong Vergas area resident, passed away under hospice care on Friday, February 12, 2010 at Emmanuel Nursing Home in Detroit Lakes.

      Alvin was born to Emil and Erna (Zitzow) Rosentreter on June 12, 1922 in Dora Township, Otter Tail County. He grew up and attended school in Dora Twp. through the eighth grade. Following his schooling, Alvin remained in Dora Twp., where he worked on the family farm.

      On June 15, 1944, Alvin was united in marriage to Ruth Glawe at Zion Lutheran Church in Detroit Lakes. After they were married, the young couple made their home on a farm in Candor Township, where they remained until Alvin's passing. Alvin truly enjoyed farming, and he and Ruth earned the East Otter Tail County Farmer & Homemaker Award on February 16, 1992.

      When Alvin was not busy on the farm, he enjoyed hunting, fishing and dancing with his wife, Ruth. During his retirement years, Alvin kept busy trapping gophers in the area. Alvin was an active member of the Candor Twp. Board, where he served for 21 years. He was an active member of St. John's Lutheran Church in Vergas, where he served as an elder and trustee for six years, and also enjoyed singing with the church choir for 30 years. He also served on the Vergas elevator board for six years.
