Jeff Roger Duerr
August 18, 1975 – March 21, 2024

Jeff was born to Roger and Lois (née Gerwing) Duerr, in Humboldt, Saskatchewan, on August 18, 1975. He was the middle child, having an older and a younger sister. Jeff started his education from kindergarten to Grade 8 at Fulda School. For high school, he attended Humboldt Collegiate Institute, graduating in 1993. As a young boy Jeff enjoyed playing baseball and taking karate lessons. After high school, Jeff worked at various places including Del Air, Koenders, and Wolverine Oil Refinery. After that, he decided that farming was his passion. With farming came many hours of tinkering in the shop and working on various pieces of machinery. Some of his other past times included cutting grass, trimming trees, and working on his snowmobiles and truck. Jeff enjoyed entertaining his nephews and niece by pulling them around behind the quad on the sled, having water balloon fights and playing ball. When he did get together with friends, it was usually at the shack to play cards. Jeff always had a fire lit on the farm on a nice summer evening or on a sunny winter day when family and friends were around. He enjoyed a good home-made meal including spaghetti and meat sauce, chili, and anything barbecued. Barney (farm dog) was his best buddy. He went everywhere with Jeff including many quad and truck rides to the field. They spent countless hours wrestling on the grass and playing fetch. Jeff will be missed around the farm by all his family members including Barney. Jeff is survived by: his parents, Roger and Lois Duerr; his older sister Rhonda (David) Mortensen of Humboldt, SK, and their children: Brody and Maya; his younger sister Tanya Duerr (Chris Koehler) of Saskatoon, SK, and their children: Braden, Joshua, and Nathan; and numerous aunts, uncles, and cousins.
