Dad was a devoted Christian and always put his faith and family first. His passions all involved being outdoors. Dad enjoyed planting maple trees in the spring, and fishing and hunting in the fall. He always encouraged everyone to love thy neighbor and to pray often.

Dad is survived by his loving wife of 32 years, Brenda Deters of Royalton, MN; two sons, Adam (Doni) Deters of Big Lake, MN; Brian Deters of Royalton, MN; father, Alex (Carol) Deters of St. Cloud, MN; brothers, Randy (Cindy) Deters of St. Cloud, MN; Rodney (Rose) Deters of Rice, MN; Gregory (Kellie) Deters of Comanche, TX; granddaughter, Madelyn and a grandson to be born in June.

He was preceded in death by his mother, Shirley (Kuhlmann) Deters.

Dad will be dearly missed and never forgotten.

In lieu of flowers memorials are preferred to the family.
