Dec. 14, 1928—March 7, 2018

Quentin J. Marquardt, age 89, of Nickerson died Wednesday, March 7, 2018, at Fremont Health.

Quentin was born Dec. 14, 1928, in Nickerson to Elberth and Elsie (Niebaum) Marquardt. He was raised on the farm near Telbasta. Quentin moved into Hooper for high school and graduated from Hooper High School. After high school he entered the United States Army. He served from 1951 to 1953 and earned the Korean Service Medal with Bronze Service Star. He then returned home and started farming. He married Ramona Miska on Sept. 28, 1957. While farming, he began a long career as a rural mail carrier until retiring.

Quentin was a member of Redeemer Lutheran Church, American Legion Post 18, both of Hooper, and the Elkhorn Valley Golf Club in Hooper. He was also a member of the Flying Farmers of America and held several offices at both the local and national levels.

He and Ramona were snow birds, traveling to Arizona for several years during the winter. Quentin was a farmer, even helping his sons last fall, but he also enjoyed golfing, flying and woodworking.

Survivors are: his wife, Ramona; sons, Terry (Jill) Marquardt of Hooper and Ron (Jeannie) Marquardt of Arlington; grandchildren, Justin (Kayla) Marquardt, Paige and Jenna Johnson, Hannah and Cole Marquardt; great-grandchildren, Kinley and Ryatt Marquardt and Creighton Woods; and brother-in-law, Fred (JoAnn) Miska of Ortonville, Michigan.
