Passing of Richard “Dobie” Allen UofMN 71′

Passing of Richard “Dobie” Allen UofMN 71′
I am sad to relate another loss today. Friday 10/2/2012
Richard “Dobie” Allen has succumbed finally to Mesothelioma. He passed away in the last few days. I do not have more details, except that the family is planning a wake or funeral next weekend, Nov 10-11.
I will forward more details when I get them. Scott Robinson is in touch with his wife and will let me know as soon as possible about the funeral arrangements.
Dobie was iconic. Minnesota Delta Chi’s own John Belushi. He added immensely to the “fun” part of frat life. We will greatly miss him and his spirited personality.
We send our sincere condolences to his family and all who knew him.

Thanks, Steve, for passing this along – and well put.   Sad news, but “The Ranger” will live on —  a big personality and enthusiastic participant in most all the hi-jinx that went on back in The Day.  JJ
I still have fond memories of our smelt expedition and then going up to “da Range” to the “god damn boom boom room in Biwabik” and Dobie’s house.  That was with Greg Bloomstrom who is also departed and made me laugh so hard.  Such great times with these guys! Ken

Passing of Kevin Sellner UofMN 89′

Kevin Sellner, 45, of New Ulm died Thursday, October 4, 2012 at his home in New Ulm. Mass of Christian Burial will be 11 am Tuesday, October 9 at the Cathedral of the Holy Trinity in New Ulm with Monsignor John A. Richter celebrating the Mass. Burial will follow in the New Ulm Catholic Cemetery. Visitation will be for one hour prior to the time of service at the church on Tuesday.

Kevin is survived by his daughter, Sarah Pitman of Bloomington and by numerous aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends.

Kevin Lee Sellner was born February 14, 1967 in New Ulm to Roger and Lois (Bishop) Sellner.

I just learned of this a few days ago and spoke with him frequently over the last 2 years.

U of MN Homecoming 2012 October 12/13th

On Friday and Saturday, October 12th and 13th the U of M will Celebrate Homecoming. The entire weekend will be on a BYOB basis with N/A’s and mixers with ice provided. Any questions about this, please feel free to contact me. We will also be selling tickets for the Annual Scholarship Raffle and would be happy to sell you some chances to win via our online donation station. More info to follow regarding the prizes and ticket cost.

To kick the weekend off at 6PM on Friday the 12th we will welcome alumni with appetizers provided through Kevin Martinez (MN ’97) who now owns The Rack Bar and Grille in Burnsville www.therackbar.com He also mentioned bringing some servers to help out, it’s worth the trip and I’m sure you’ll thank me later.

 

The parade begins at 7PM down University traveling east from the corner of 15th and ends at TCF Bank Stadium. http://www.homecoming.umn.edu/parade/

 

Following the parade at about 8 – 8:30 we will have some entertainment provided by our one and only Hans Okerstrom (MN ’92) with his band High Octane. www.high-octane-mn.com  These guys seriously rock the house and their playlist is sure to satisfy all ages!

 

Once that wraps up after 10PM the pizza ovens will be cranking out some snacks via Ryan Elsner (MN ’98) and his new venture with Chanticlear Pizza. They can also be purchased at Kowalski’s locations or go to www.chanticlearfrozenpizza.com for more information.

 

 

It’s OK if you can’t make it on Friday, we’ll be having the omelet chef back again starting around 8AM to cook for you. Custom, made to order omelets and basic breakfast beverages including orange juice and coffee to pregame. At 10:30 we’ll be doing the scholarship raffle drawings and have the game available to watch on the big screens if you don’t plan to buy tickets to the game.

It’s going to be a great weekend, now do yourself a favor and reach out to 5 of the guys you have not seen in a while and forward this on. Our active chapter has 34 members and 23 associate members, the time for Delta Chi MN to shine is clearly upon us and we appreciate your support.

ITB,
