SAUK CENTRE, Minn. (KNSI) A longtime member of the Stearns County Board of Commissioners has died after a lengthy battle with cancer.

Don Otte of Sauk Centre died Wednesday at the age of 68.

Otte was first elected to the board in 1998, and then was re-elected for three more terms as he ran unopposed.

Otte battled cancer for 20 years, and last year, was diagnosed with a disorder that left him requiring frequent blood transfusions.

Funeral services will be held Monday morning at 11 o'clock at St. Paul's Catholic Church. Otte is survived by his wife, three children and six grandkids.
