Brian Scott Wiebke, 48, passed away peacefully at his home following a courageous battle with cancer on January 9, 2014, surrounded by his family at his home in Oronoco.
Brian was born on December 12, 1965 in Rochester to Ben and LouAnn (Born) Wiebke. He attended John Marshall High School, graduating in 1984. He moved to Breckenridge, Colorado in 1992. In 2008, he returned to Oronoco and married his long-time soul-mate, Julie Moreton on May 26, 2013. Prior to his diagnosis with cancer, Brian worked at Sunrise Cottages of Rochester.
Brian loved the outdoors, especially the Colorado Mountains, fishing, gardening and music. He was a very talented artist who excelled in sketching and painting and was a natural storyteller. Brian had a special love for all animals. He was a lifetime Minnesota Vikings fan. He was loved by many, and touched the lives of those who knew him ... you remembered him if you met him. He will be greatly missed.
Brian will be remembered by his wife Julie, his mother LouAnn Wiebke (Born) of Rochester, a sister Sharon (Jim) Halling of Rochester, a brother Mark of Fairfax, MN, a nephew Jesse Wiebke of Mankato, a niece Ashley Wiebke of Mazeppa and his cherished cats, Bugsy and Fontayne.
He is preceded in death by his father Ben and his grandparents.
A memorial service for Brian will be held at 11:00 am on Saturday, January 18, 2014 at Mt. Olive Lutheran Church in Rochester, MN with family visitation from 10 to 11 am. The family requests that memorials be directed to his wife, Julie Moreton or the charity of choice.
