Albert A. Hilk

Albert A. Hilk, age 78, of Redmond, WA and formerly of Waconia, MN, passed away Friday, August 8, 2014 at Overlake Hospital in Bellevue, WA.

Albert was born April 23, 1936 in Waconia Township, MN, to Alfred and Emma (nee Luebke) Hilk. He grew up on the family farm on the north side of Lake Waconia. He worked at Tonka Toys in Mound, MN for 38 years.

He married his wife Rose Marie Clara Sterner in Winsted, MN, on August 16, 1958. They were the parents of 6 children.

After his wife died in 1995, he moved to Redmond, WA, to be close to his daughters and grandchildren. Albert spent many years in Washington living with his grandchildren, being very involved in their lives. He also took pride in manicuring his daughter’s lawn and sharing his Tonka Toy collection with everyone. He traveled to visit his siblings, in-laws and extended family in several states throughout his retirement years.

Albert loved to learn, and passed on his love of knowledge to his family. He recently moved into an assisted living facility in Redmond, WA, where he continued to make friends, learn new things and share his knowledge and his Tonka Toy collection.

He was preceded in death by his wife, Rose Marie, 3 infant children and parents Alfred and Emma Hilk. Albert is survived by daughters and son-in-law Sandra Hilk of Redmond, WA, Teresa and Richard Pletcher, also of Redmond, and Rhonda Hilk of Bellevue, WA; grandchildren Jennifer Pletcher, Anthony Pletcher (significant other Kevi Louis-Johnson) and Justin Pletcher of WA.
