Peter John Haedtke was born on June 7, 1943, and met his Heavenly Father on July 6, 2023. He was born at the Winona General Hospital and grew up living on farms in the Lewiston, Stockton and Peterson areas. In 1956 his family moved to Minneapolis and the farm boy had to adjust to city living. Pete graduated from high school and enlisted with the U.S. Army. He completed boot camp in Colorado and transferred to Fort Bliss in El Paso, Texas where he became an instructor on base for his tour of duty. After the Army, he pursued an education in electrical engineering at the University of Minnesota. He was then employed by Control Data and Univac, amongst other early "tech" companies as an engineer. In August of 1969 he married Linda Lundin, and they began their life together. Pete and Linda raised two sons, Dan and Joel, of which he was so proud of. In 1987 he became employed with Lake Center Industries which became a part of TRW Automotive. That brought the family to Rushford, MN and Pete was happy to be back in his hometown area. He was able to reconnect with aunts, uncles, cousins and many friends in the area. Pete worked for TRW until 2000 when he retired early. Pete also started his own business, Lyntek Engineering, and did consulting. Pete’s hobbies were flower growing, having a beautiful yard, working on his 1948 Ford truck and 1951 Ford car, not to mention the number of homes he and his wife renovated. Pete’s dream was moving to Florida, inspired by business trips to the Sunshine State and no more snow to shovel. That dream came true in 2015 and with it, the family was back together again with Dan moving to FL from CO and Joel from MN a year earlier. Pete is survived by his wife Linda, son Dan, daughter-in-law Christa, grand-daughter, River and son Joel, all of Florida. Also, brothers James and wife Nancy, Robert, Edward and wife Linda, and John. Nephews and nieces. He was preceded in death by his father Edward, mother Irene(Janzow), brother Richard and Sisters, Josephine and Patricia. Internment at MN Veterans Cemetery, Camp Ripley, Little Falls, MN. Pete will always be missed and forever loved.
