Jeffrey Wieneke, 55

Jeffrey Wieneke, 55, of Brandon, died unexpectedly from a pre-existing heart condition on Monday, April 29, 2019, at his home in Brandon. 
Mass of Christian Burial was held Friday, May 3, 2019, at Risen Savior Catholic Church in Brandon.
Jeffrey John Wieneke, son of Donald and Margaret (Kellen) Wieneke, was born Dec. 9, 1963, in Adrian, Minn. He graduated from Adrian High School with the class of 1982. Following graduation Jeff attended Worthington Community College, Jackson Area Vocational Tech, and Pipestone Vocational Tech School. After moving to Brandon in the early 2000’s, Jeff found the love of his life, Justine. She lived just next door, and would eventually become his fiancé.
He loved being outdoors and everything that went with it including biking, camping, bonfires, hiking, and taking his beloved dog, Odie out for walks. The annual Wieneke campout at the family farm in Adrian was always a joy of his. Jeff cherished the moments he spent with his many nieces and nephews. Many nights were spent in the garage listening to music or watching the Minnesota Twins and San Diego Chargers. Jeff was always there to help a friend or family member whenever they needed it. He was employed with Hillyard, Inc. in Sioux Falls for the past 10 years. Jeff was most proud of helping raise Trevor and Tessa as his own, helping them to grow into wonderful young adults. 
Left to cherish his memory are his fiancé, Justine Tobin of Brandon; Justine’s children, Trevor (Megan Mingo) Tobin and Tessa (Alek Hensch) Tobin, both of Brandon; mother, Margie Wieneke of Adrian, Minn.; brothers, Thomas (Sharon) Wieneke of Jackson, Minn., Dean Wieneke of Adrian, and Alan (Rita) Wieneke of Redwood Falls, Minn.; sisters, Mary (Gene) Metz of Lismore, Minn., Debra (Joe) Kristoff of Marshall, MN, and Jan (Ray) Konz of Brandon; sisters-in-law, Jennifer Wethor and Jessica (Jim) Nolz, all of Brandon; sidekick, Odie; and special friends, Marc and Deb Welch of Brandon. 
He was preceded in death by his father, Donald; sister, Elaine; brother-in-law, Tim Wethor; and Justine’s parents, Jud and Kathy Hauser.
