Earl L. Lubiens, age 72, of Fargo, ND, passed away on Sunday, October 31, 2021, in Sanford Health, Broadway, Fargo.
Earl LeRoy Lubiens, the son of Loren and Lois (Irwin) Lubiens, was born August 3, 1949, in Aberdeen, SD. He grew up and graduated from high school in Fullerton, ND, after which he attended Diesel Tech school in Laramie, WY. He then returned to North Dakota where he began driving milk truck for Land O' Lakes out of Oakes, ND, which he did from 1970 until the mid-80's. He then relocated to Fargo where he attended business school and worked various jobs leading to retirement.
Earl was a steadfast believer in God and loved church gatherings and family get-togethers. He was a regular member at the Fullerton Union Church up until the time of his move to Fargo. Once settled in, he became a member of the Seventh Day Adventist Church in Moorhead, MN. He constantly expressed how he enjoyed the fellowship with others in the church and always looked forward to attending services.
He also loved sports and attending events - whether it be local Bison and Redhawks games or the occasional trip to the twin cities for Twins and Vikings games. He loved to share with people how the family had a connection with Twins legend Harmon Killebrew. His uncle, Lyle Lubiens of Nampa, ID, taught Harmon in high school and was later at his signing by the Washington Senators. Earl met him several times and sort of adopted him as a family celebrity, so being a Twins fan ran in his blood.
Earl is survived by his mother, Lois Lubiens, of LaMoure, ND; three brothers, Roger (Susan) Lubiens, Folsom, CA, Glenn Lubiens, Houston, TX, and Brian (Shelley) Lubiens, Mandan, ND; one sister, LaVonne (Garry) Jordan, Camden, AR; one nephew, Gary (Sheila) Lundlee, Seattle, WA; three nieces, Brianna (Sebastiaan) Duin, Dell Rapids, SD, Brittni Lubiens, Dell Rapids, and Brooke Lubiens, Watertown, SD; two great nieces, Laila Jones, Pierre, SD and Lucy Lubiens, Dell Rapids; and one great nephew, Evander Duin, Dell Rapids. Earl was preceded in death by his father, Loren Lubiens, of Fullerton, ND.
Memorials are preferred to Dacotah Foundation, Fargo, ND, and the Seventh Day Adventist Church, Moorhead MN.
A Memorial Service for Earl will be Saturday, November 27, 2021 at 2:00 PM, in Fullerton Union Church, Fullerton, ND.
