Jonathan Michael Moe, the son of Jerry Moe and Debbie Rokala was born on December 24, 1974, in Hutchinson, Minnesota. He grew up in Cokato until he was five when they moved to New Mexico. The family moved back to the Dassel area when Jonathan was 10 years old. He was united in marriage to Samara Cates. Together they made their home in Cokato before moving to the Kingston area. He had been employed as a meat cutter at Ittels Meats in Howard Lake. He had also been employed for many years with Decks Unlimited in Cokato and recently became employed by Phi Decks in Plymouth. Jon is a loving husband and a caring dad. He loved his wife, Samara Cates with his whole heart deeply. They were married on April 19th, 2008, in Knapp, MN. In doing so, Jon became the father to Robin Cates and soon in July 2008 their daughter, Ruby was born. Jon was a dedicated and Involved family guy. He loved to do spontaneous road trips, that ended up taking many back roads, but always find a new adventure that created many memories for them to recall. He then would start some good family outings they would do annually and invite friends and family to join and enjoy as well. He loved doing things with his extended family as well. He especially like hanging out at the Cates campground. He made a point to come and make sure his wife would have enough wood to have a good quality bonfire so all could sit around and have a good time. If he wasn't enjoying the social time with family and friends, he was more likely prepping for hunting season and making sure his stand/blind would be ready for season. But also, for youth to tag along and experience and partake in hunting. He was also into fishing as well. He has spent many quality hours on the lake with his family and friends catching fish. That in winter, you would be more likely to see him socializing more. Either due to locating where fish are, or helping Ruby sell girl scout cookies. But either way, those two would be bragging who caught more fish that day. The cookies sold themselves so just needed to deliver later what they ran out of. Most time, good reason to go for day and adventure. He was a hard worker and an awesome carpenter. He has made or built many things for others to enjoy. He helped with changing a chicken coop into a spacious and well-made deer shack on the cliffs of the Cates campground. Along with a nice shack to stay in, he has invested in a passenger trolley that he pulled with 4-wheeler and gives trolley rides that many have enjoyed along the river and through the woods. Jon was always helping to make sure any get together or event he was attending would be a good time or make sure others would have a good time. As long as some fun to break up the routine so you'd reflect and enjoy the memory. He may not have a lot to say, but he made sure you would be saying a lot after your time with him. He really had a way of making sure memories were being made. He made sure to touch base with all of his family, distant or nearby. Jon also was very good at making delicious food. From potato sausage, salsa, to grilling surf-n-turf. But his family said his biscuits and gravy was a weekly favorite. Jon had many other talents that he was very well at. He was an all-around good person to most and willing to help if needed. He will be missed by many but remembered by most that have meet him. He is survived by his wife, Samara Cates of Kingston, children, Robin Cates of Dassel, Ruby Moe of Kingston, mother, Debbie Rokala of Cokato, father, Jerry Moe of Dassel, siblings, Christa (Mark) Vaughn of Cokato, and Steve (Sarah) Moe of Kingston, grandmother, Betty Rokala of Cokato and several nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles, and other relatives. He is also survived by his mother-in-law, Jody Cates of Dassel, and brother-in-law, Dale (Krisse) Cates of South Haven. He was preceded in death by his paternal grandparents, Bob and Grace Moe and his maternal grandfather, Russell Rokala.
