Kelvyn Kriene Leuthold
Kelvyn Kriene Leuthold was born May 16, 2012 in Sioux Falls, SD to Kale and Kourtney (Kramer) Leuthold. In the mere seven years he lived on this earth, Kelvyn touched many lives. On Monday, August 12, Kelvyn was in a farm accident and was called to his heavenly home. We are thankful for the little man that Kelvyn grew up to be. He was selfless and eager to help others. He was a great host and welcomed people into his home and served them well. He was full of energy and lit up the room with his toothless smile. He lived in the moment, enjoying the present activity to the fullest. He wasn’t afraid to ask questions or share his opinion. Kelvyn was hard working and mature beyond his years. He watched over his little sisters and loved them dearly. He loved having engaging conversations with his mom. He loved life on the farm: riding horses, driving go-cart, and being a farmhand for his dad. He was a competitive little guy who loved playing sports and being great at them. He also loved time at the lake with cousins. Above all, he loved Jesus and was not shy to talk about his faith. Kelvyn’s four-year-old sister, Kaylee, walked up to their Opi (grandpa) and showed him a picture she colored. She said, “This is Kelvyn and this is Jesus and they’re in Heaven.” We love you Kelvyn Kriene. You have filled our hearts with joy. Kelvyn is survived by his parents, Kale and Kourtney Leuthold, who raised such a loveable young man and kids that love Jesus. He is also survived by his sisters Kaylee and Kara; grandparents Kriene and Darla Kramer of Garvin, MN, Dennis and Diane Leuthold of Hills, MN; great-grandparents Algene and Bertha Houtsma of George, IA, Earl and Jan Schlotman of Farmington, MN, Estelle Leuthold of Hills, MN, and Gloria Wyrick of Sioux Falls, SD, and aunts and uncles, Sterling and Karly Schwartz, Jesse and Emily Leuthold, Thomas and Kelsey Gluf, Taylor and Marissa Leuthold, and Dalton and Haley Klarenbeek. Kelvyn also loved his 11 cousins. Kelvyn is preceded in death by his great-grandparents Kriene and Violet Kramer, Alvin Leuthold and Gary Wyrick. A celebration of life service will be held at 11 a.m. Saturday, August 17, 2019 at the Solid Rock Church with Pastor Scott Barber officiating. Kelvyn’s aunts and uncles will serve as casket bearers. Burial will be held at the Worthington Cemetery immediately following the celebration of life service.
