Obituary

Daniel “Dan” J. Vagt, age 56 of Austin, Minnesota, passed away Sunday, July 29, 2018 at his home in Austin. Daniel James Vagt was born August 19, 1961 in Rochester, Minnesota to James and Ronna (Garrett) Vagt. He grew up in Rochester and in 1974 his family moved to Oronoco, Minnesota where he attended John Marshall High School, graduating in 1979. After graduation he worked at Pace Dairy in Rochester for a few years before moving to the Twin Cities to attend Vocational School for vending repair. On October 19, 1985 “known as the sweetest day” Daniel married Suzanne “Suzie” Rieck at Galilee Lutheran Church in Roseville, Minnesota. The couple made their home in Austin and was blessed with one daughter Angela. Dan worked at Quality Pork in Austin for 28 years and also did part-time vending. He was known as very inventive, fix it man, and a great problem solver. Dan was a Budweiser man who loved to cook and barbeque and would always take pictures of the food he made. He was a member of Grace Lutheran Church in Austin and enjoyed gardening, watching cooking shows and home improvement, and loved spending time with his granddaughter Kinsley. Dan will be dearly missed by all who knew and loved him.

Those left to cherish Dan’s memory are his parents James and Ronna Vagt of Oronoco, MN; wife Suzanne Vagt of Austin, MN; daughter Angela (Dan) Klingfus of Austin, MN; 1 granddaughter Kinsley; brother Russ (Caryn) Vagt of Rochester, MN; sister Pat (John) Morris of Harrisonville, MO; sisters-in-law, Cindy Flattum of Cottage Grove, MN and Jackie (Dan) Nerud of Maplewood, MN. He was preceded in death by his grandparents, mother-in-law and father-in-law Joyce and Walter Rieck, and brother-in-law Jason Rieck.

Memorial services will be held at 12:00(noon) on Friday, August 3, 2018, at the Worlein Funeral Home Chapel with Pastor Patrick Ziems Officiating. The Vagt family will greet friends for one hour prior to the service.
