Senator Stroebel, with unanimous consent, asked that the Senate adjourn in honor of Representative Bob Gannon. Bob’s recent passing was a shock to all of us. His 58th Assembly District is in Senator Stroebel’s Senate District, so he had the chance to work with Bob quite frequently. He admired his qualities of frankness and no-nonsense approach to the issues. He was always interested in doing what was right for his district as well as the entire state. He will be missed.

The Grandmaster title is the most elite title awarded by the World Chess Federation. He was awarded the Grandmaster title by the Federation Presidential Board this past June. Awonder is a student at Madison West High School. Awonder became the youngest player to defeat a Grandmaster when he was only 9 years old. He won the World Youth Under Age 8 World Champion in 2011 and the World Youth Under Age 10 Champion in 2013. He won the 2017 United States Junior Closed Champion. Congratulations to Awonder on all of his accomplishments.
Senator Bewley, with unanimous consent, asked that the Senate adjourn in honor of her father-in-law, Warren A. Saetre, retired Ninth Judicial District Trial judge, who died Tuesday, September 26, in Marshall, Minnesota. Still active at 94 year of age, Saetre died as a result of injuries suffered as a passenger in a traffic accident. Judge Saetre was born August 22, 1923 in Henning, the son of Alfred and Ida (Thoreson) Saetre, the fifth in a family of five boys and two girls. Two of his brothers, Gaylord and Homer, were also District judges in Minnesota. As a boy, Saetre learned the value of hard work from his farming family, nurtured a life-long love of the outdoors, fishing and hunting the prairie lakes of his home, and he developed the virtues of integrity and faith from his Norwegian Lutheran family. He became acquainted with grief as a boy when his father died in the midst of the Depression, and he learned from his mother’s grit as she raised her family through those hard times. Saetre enlisted in the U.S. Army Air Corps in 1942, receiving his officer’s commission and silver wings as a fighter pilot. He flew P-38s and P-47s during WWII, and P-51s as a Minnesota Air National Guard officer following the war. He never forgot the honor of serving his country as a pilot and the thrill of flight that marked those years. He graduated from William Mitchell Law School in 1951 and opened a solo law practice in the small town of Warren, served as Marshall County Attorney from 1953 to 1963, and grew his practice into what is now the successful law firm of Rokke and Aandal. Saetre was appointed to 9th Judicial Bench by Gov. Harold Levander in 1968 and served until his retirement in 1989. He won praise from other judges and members of the bar, who said of him at his retirement, that “He was an uncommonly good judge…a role model for many years for younger judges and lawyers around the state.” Saetre was an author of the Minnesota Criminal Jury Instructions Guide and served as Chief Judge of the 9th District. He was a Fellow in the International Academy of Trial Judges and studied at the National College of Trial Judges and also as a student of British Law at the University of Birmingham. In retirement, he continued his love of the outdoors as an avid walleye fisherman on Lake of the Woods, and had a fanatical love of duck-hunting, an all-consuming trait passed on to his son, and my husband, David. He treated Senator Bewley as a daughter, teased me mercilessly, and will be forever in her heart.
Senator Moulton, with unanimous consent, asked that the Senate adjourn in honor of his grandson, Dawson Moulton, who at the age of 10, bagged his first deer with a bow and arrow. He is also the youngest member of the Moulton family to ever shoot a deer.
