Kenneth John Tuil, 66, died January 2, 2012 at Douglas County Hospital in Alexandria.
Ken was born in Bertha on June 23, 1945 to Jubbie and Elizabeth Tuil. He was baptized into the Christian Faith at Esther Lutheran Church on August 5, 1945. He joined a brother, Dave and a sister, Ardelle and was joined by a brother, Gary, four years later.
Ken was a great worker on the family farm near Rose City and loved helping with farm chores. He especially liked mowing the lawn and shoveling snow. He was filled with energy and would work for hours on end.
He also attended the Parkers Prairie DAC and looked forward to going to a week at summer camp every year.
In 1983, he moved to a group home setting in Alexandria and in 1985 began attending the Alexandria DAC, which provided a great place for him to go to work each day.
The Prairie Community Services group home provided a wonderful home atmosphere for him and kept him busy with activities that included parties, dances, parades, picnics, church and movies.
He is survived by his brothers, David (Glenna) of Hawley, Gary (Karen) of Alexandria, and several nieces, nephews and cousins.
He was preceded in death by his parents and by his sister, Ardelle.
A funeral service was held for Ken on January 6 at Esther Lutheran Church in rural Parkers Prairie with Pastor Jeanette Bidne officiating.
Arrangements were by Lind Family Funeral Service.
