Allen Sydney Mohn, age 77, of Lakeville passed away in Phoenix, Arizona on January 3, 2021.  Allen was born in Farmington, Minnesota on November 13, 1943 to Sydney and Violet (Johnson) Mohn. He grew up on his family’s century farm in rural Lakeville. His mother passed away when Allen was 5 years old.  His father Sydney married Victoria (Nelson) Mohn when he was 7 years old.

Allen attended the one room schoolhouse in Eidswold until fifth grade and graduated from Lakeville High School. Allen worked many jobs in his life. He started with foundry work at Hitchcock Industries and the transitioned to carpentry working for Vern Donnay Homes for 25 years. He also worked for Storlie Builders and other builders throughout the years. He completely renovated his home in Farmington in that included a hair salon for his wife Nicky in the late ‘60s to early ‘70s.

In 1981 he built a double wooden corn crib out of home sawed oak that was harvested from the farm. It was a labor of love for his dad Sydney. Allen was a big help on the family farm doing general repair, painting, and many hours of mowing. During each visit he would pull his lawn chair out of his vehicle and sit, relax, and enjoy being on his family farm.

In his retirement years he enjoyed deer hunting, hiking, and being out in nature. He also enjoyed spending time with his grandchildren, staying at his daughter’s cabins on summer weekends, making the drive each year to Arizona with his daughter and wintering in Apache Junction, AZ. He was always genuinely happy for his children’s and grandchildren’s successes and was eager to let them know it. He loved visiting with friends around Lakeville, friends at the lakes in the summer, and with friends in Arizona.

He was preceded in death by his Mother Violet (Johnson) Mohn, Father Sydney E. Mohn, and his stepmother Victoria (Nelson) Mohn.

Allen is survived by his children, Leah (Brett) DeBates, Nina (John) Frank, Jim Mohn, and Tami (David) Campbell. He is survived by his cherished grandchildren, Nick DeBates, Nathan DeBates; Megan (Will) Rogers, Alex (Ben) Swegarden, and Johnna Frank; Tim Mohn, Christopher Mohn, Nadja Mohn, and Yanina Mohn; and Chelsea Campbell, Ashlie Green, and Jessie Green. And his great-grandchildren Willow Rodgers and Baby Rodgers; and Nicky Mohn, mother of his children and wife of 30 years.

Allen is survived by his brothers John (Sharon) Mohn and Bruce (Cheryl) Mohn and many nieces and nephews all of Lakeville.

A private service will be held for Allen at Christiania Lutheran Church. The Celebration of Life ceremony will take place in the early spring of 2021. Please check back to this website for updates. In lieu of flowers, memorials can be sent to parksandtrails.org or an organization of your choice.
