James Richard Satre, age 58 of Hoffman passed away on Tuesday, May 21, 2019, at his home surrounded by his family and loved ones.
Jim was born June 30th, 1960 to Ellsworth and Lorna (Fiebelkorn) Satre in Morris, MN. He was a lifelong resident of Hoffman, MN, currently residing on the Satre homestead of rural Hoffman.
After graduating from Hoffman High School, he worked part time for Kiehne Construction. Jim started working at the Hoffman Locker plant at the age of 16 as a meat cutter and worked alongside his brothers. He also operated his own lawn mowing and snow removal service with his brother Tom.
