Tanner E Wiedebush, son of Brian and Karen (Wanttie) Wiedebush was born April 19, 1999 at Aberdeen. He grew up on the family farm northwest of Mansfield. Tanner enjoyed the outdoors, with hunting, fishing and trapping being his passion. If he had his way, those activities would fill every day. Tanner attended K-12 at Warner Public School, graduating with the Class of 2017. He was currently attending Lake Area Technical Institute in Watertown studying Agriculture Production.

When Tanner was not outdoors he liked bowling and church youth league. He shared the enjoyment of competitive trapshooting with his twin sister, Hannah. Tanner loved spending time with family and if not with family, he could be found hanging out with his friends. They enjoyed campfires and trips to the Missouri River fishing. Tanner had a wonderful future ahead of him and was looking forward to returning to farming full-time.

Tanner was a member of Trinity Lutheran Church, SD Trappers Association and National Trappers Association.

Grateful for having shared Tanner’s 18 years of love and fun filled life are his parents, Brian and Karen; twin sister, Hannah Wiedebush of Mansfield; maternal grandfather, Gerald Wanttie of Aberdeen; paternal grandparents, Eugene and Ellen Wiedebush of Mansfield and several aunts, uncles and cousins.

He was preceded in death by his maternal grandmother, Katherine Wanttie.
