Kenneth Dahlberg

February 7, 1944 — December 22, 2022

Our loving, patient father, grandfather, uncle, and brother passed away peacefully on December 22,

2022, with his loving family at his side.


Kenny was born on February 7, 1944, in Bottineau, North Dakota to Elmer and Lillian Dahlberg. As a

young boy he spent many hours riding his favorite horse Prince, he loved fishing and hunting and he

taught himself to swim at Lake Metigoshe. As dad grew up, he was involved in carpentry helping his dad

build many of the cabins around the lake. In his spare time, he would be outside working on his car to

see what he could do to make it faster, dad loved going fast.


Kenny met the love of his life Kathy Charbonneau from Dunseith, North Dakota. Dad entered the US

Army where he served in the Vietnam War and was later honorably discharge. Kenny returned home to

Bottineau where they continued to make their home until 1974 when they moved to Idaho where dad

worked various jobs until he went to work for Simplot at C & Y Farms. Dad worked for Simplot for over

20 years farming and doing any mechanic worked that needed to be done. In 1999 dad decided to retire

and him and mom moved to Pocatello where he spent his remaining working years at Pocatello Sod,

where they treated him like family, and he really enjoyed working for them. Dad was forced to retire

due to health reasons, but he was such a hard worker he always wanted to go back to work. Dad was

able to go back to North Dakota this summer and spend time with his sister Helen and that meant a lot

to him. They did some traveling, he visited with his other siblings, and talked with nieces and nephews

that he had not talked to for years.


Dad’s hobbies included his yard which he was very proud of, and his mechanical abilities to fix anything

that was brought to him broke. In the winter his garage would be filled with snowmobiles to fix and

during the summer it would be anything from a lawn mower to a vehicle. His all-time favorite thing to

do was to fix older cars and when he was done, he would sell it and start all over again.


One of dad’s fondest memories of coming home from the war was not only being with his family but

going to his sister Karen’s house to wake up his nieces and nephew Shelly, Veronica, and Kent whom he

stayed close to all these years. He said he can remember carrying them around that night. Dad was an

excellent father and grandfather who really enjoyed taking the kids and small grandkids to Heglar

Mountains to ride snowmobiles. Dad was a very caring and lovable person and all those that met him

said he was such a sweet man; he will be deeply missed by all those that knew him.


Kenny is survived by his children; Todd (Keri) Dahlberg of Aberdeen; Lori (Randy) Hansen of Chubbuck;

Corey (Kathy) Dahlberg of Pocatello. Grandchildren Skyler (Dani) and Brook Dahlberg, Dakota Ames

(Gage), Zachery Hansen, and Shelbi Waters; great grandchildren Abbey, Adalyn, Wyatt, Elly, and Emily.

Sisters Helen Dahlberg Otto, Vicky Dahlberg Solis of Minot North Dakota, Evvy Dahlberg Hall, and

He is preceded in death by his loving wife Kathy, his parents Elmer and Lillian Dahlberg, sister Karen

Kittleson and brothers Virgil, Gene, and Loren Dahlberg. His mother and father in-law Genevieve and

Lionel Charbonneau.
