Dale J. Primus, 58, of Sauk Centre, passed away unexpectedly June 4, 2022, at CentraCare-Sauk Centre Hospital in Sauk Centre.

A Mass of Christian Burial was June 10 at St. Paul’s Catholic Church in Sauk Centre with the Rev. Greg Paffel officiating. Interment was in the parish cemetery.

Dale Joseph Primus was born July 28, 1963 in Melrose, to Joseph and Catherine (Olmscheid) Primus. On Sept. 3, 1993, he married Nancy Berscheit at St. Joseph’s Catholic Church in Grey Eagle.

When he wasn’t farming, he enjoyed playing softball, volleyball and spending time at the lake cabin with family and friends.
