Jeffry E. Restemayer

     Jeffry E. Restemayer, 65, of Cavalier, ND, passed away Monday, October 14, 2019, at his home in Cavalier. Funeral Service will be held Monday, October 21, 2019, at 10:30 a.m. at the Trinity United Methodist Church, Cavalier, ND. Visitation will be held Sunday, October 20, 2019, from 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. with a 4:00 p.m. prayer service at the church. Interment will be held in the Zion Cemetery, Cavalier, ND.

    Jeffry Earl Restemayer was born August 7, 1954 to Earl and Helen (Haugstad) Restemayer. Jeff grew up on the family farm, and attended Cavalier School. He enjoyed playing the bass horn taking part in many state music contests and trips including the International Music Camp. He also enjoyed playing with the Pep Band for years.

     He was involved in 4-H for 10 years, earning many ribbons and trophies at the Pembina County Fair in Hamilton.

     Jeff always had a love of cooking and serving special food, which he learned from his Grandma Lydia Restemayer.

     He earned a degree from Wahpeton School of Science in Culinary Arts. He went on a trip to Europe with his chef class viewing different cooking sites. He worked at a supper club in Fargo. He took great pride in scouring recipe books and magazines for what to try for the next event. He always made sure there was plenty of food and a variety to choose from. He also didn’t mind washing dishes!

     On returning to Cavalier, he went into partnership with his Dad raising hogs, and helping with the Ralston Purina Feed Dealership. He also worked as a cook at the popular Chuckwagon Café for over ten years.

     He married Lynette Hance in 1981 at Deering, ND. In April of 1989, they welcomed their son John to the family.

     In 1987 Jeff started working at the Pembina County Sheriff’s Office as a 911 Dispatcher and Jailer. He retired on May 31, 2017 after 29.5 years. He worked mostly nights, and somehow it seemed to work out that he was “on shift” whenever something out of the ordinary happened. He was glad for doing his part in helping the work of the Sheriff and Police go well.

     He was a member of the Cavalier Jaycees and Trinity United Methodist Church in Cavalier, serving on many committees. Jeff enjoyed attending weekly Bible study and was currently serving as the Sunday School Superintendent. Jeff also continued his interest in 4-H. He was a leader of the Tongue River Braves, Green Clovers Club, and served on the County Leaders 4-H Council.

     Jeff loved the Pembina County Fair in Hamilton. He served on the fair board for over 25 years, spending most days of summer working at the fairgrounds, and thinking of ways to improve the fair for everyone. He was so proud to be on the fair board to celebrate the 100-year anniversary of the fair. He took it in stride when the radio station would interview him each day of which food stand he tried.

     Jeff is survived by his wife, Lynette; son, John; mother, Helen; brothers: Steve (Sue) Restemayer and Doug (Connie) Restemayer; nephews: Bill, Alex, and Max Restemayer; niece, Anna Restemayer; uncle, Harold Haugstad; aunts: Alice Peterson and Linda Restemayer; brother-in-law, Jim (Linda) Hance; sisters-in-law, Bev Dougan and Judy (Steve) Doeden, and their families.

     He was preceded in death by his father, Earl; father-in-law, Lynn Hance; grandparents: Milton and Lydia Restemayer and Harry and Caroline Haugstad; aunts: Mabel Kerlin, Muriel (Larry) Johnson, Corrine Haugstad; uncles: Russell Restemayer and Bob Peterson; sister-in-law, Colleen Hance; and brother-in-law, Danny Dougan.

So sad to hear of Jeffs passing. I worked with him both at the Chuckwagon Cafe and at the Pembina County Sheriffs Office. He was always kind and would just shake his head when crazy things happened at work. Sending (hugs) and condolences to the family.
