Lester Clarence Frey was born to Emil and Frieda (Ehresmann) Frey on Wednesday, August 31, 1927 at Tripp, South Dakota. He attended school through the 8th grade, when he began to work on the family farm ten miles southwest of Tripp.                         Lester was united in marriage to Luella Schelske at the First American Lutheran Church in Tripp on Tuesday, September 6, 1949.
In 1952, he enlisted in the U.S. Army and served in the Military Police. Upon his discharge in 1954, he returned to Tripp and farmed his family’s land until 1992 when he retired and moved into town. Lester served on the Lake Point District #92 School Board, on the Church Consistory for Frieden’s Church for several years, and was a member of Jelkin-Harms American Legion Post #142. He was a man of few words and still made a profound impact.
Lester passed away at the Good Samaritan Society of Tripp on Friday, December 9, 2011 having attained the age of 84 years, 3 months, and 9 days.
Lester’s memory will be cherished by his two children: Keith (Betty) Frey of Tripp and Cindy (Donald) Hight of Scotland; four grandchildren: Todd Frey, Toby Hight, Tricia Boschee, and Tucker Hight; and three great-grandchildren: Trinity, Jeffrey, and Elizabeth Boschee.
Lester was preceded in death by his parents, Emil and Frieda Frey, and his wife, Luella Frey.
