Obituary

Walcott, ND, age 67, passed away at his home on Aug. 19th. He was born Nov. 3, 1952, to Harold and Beverly (Cameron) Nordquist, in Watertown, SD.

Jeff married Becky Madsen in 1978. They had 3 children and 1 grandchild. Jeff was very family oriented, his family’s hero and patriarch. He was loyal, trustworthy, dependable, and a lot of fun. To know him was to love him. He had many friends.

Jeff moved from the family farm near Wilmot, SD to work for Steiger Tractor in 1975. He was a machine operator at the factory which later became CaseIH, for 43 years, retiring in 2017.

Jeff was an avid street rod enthusiast, master metalsmith, and street rod builder who took pride in doing all of the work himself on his project cars, a 1956 Studebaker Flight Hawk, a 1938 Ford Coupe, and a 1970 Mustang Mach 1 that he’d owned since he was 19. Jeff could fix anything, loved gardening, growing enough produce for his family and neighbors.

Jeff is survived by his wife, Becky, daughters, Ashlee Nordquist, Amber Nordquist, son, Jacob (Mindy) Nordquist, and grandson, Corvus Odean Nordquist. Siblings, Deb (Rog) Bjerke, Marcie (Tom) Reimche, Karen Rufer, Tom (Patty) Nordquist, Laurie (Myron) Van Hout, Josh (Deb) Nordquist, and many nieces and nephews.
