Cleon Allen Aune, the son of Julius and Palma Aune, was born March 3, 1926 in Hendricks. He was baptized and confirmed at Calvary Lutheran Church in Hendricks and later became a member of Christ Lutheran Church.

Cleon lived in Hendricks in his early years and moved to Redwood Falls in the early 1970s. He loved horses and enjoyed following sports – especially the Twins and Vikings. Cleon did a lot of craft projects; when he was 89 years old he began painting beautiful garden stones. He enjoyed coloring, painting and playing Bingo. Cleon had an infectious smile. He enjoyed visiting family and loved to tease the staff at his home.

He is survived by his sisters Delores Olson, Elizabeth Klosterman, and Joan Lovro; brother Paul Aune; many nieces and nephews; his housemates and many friends. Cleon was preceded in death by his parents; brothers Julian and James Aune; and sister Lorraine Thompson.

Blessed be his memory.
