Keith Schroeder, 79, of New York Mills, formerly Fergus Falls, died Saturday, February 15, 2014 at the Veteran's Administration Hospital in Fargo, ND.

He was born January 20, 1935 in Fergus Falls to Henry and Martha Schroeder. He grew up and received his schooling in Fergus Falls. On February 5, 1953, Keith enlisted in the U.S. Army and served in Germany. He was honorably discharged on January 24, 1956. Keith was employed as an over the road trucker for over 40 years. On December 14, 1967, he was united in marriage to Lucille (Mostue) Beckman in Fergus Falls, where they made their home.
