Ronald G. Strickland

 

Ronald G. Strickland, age 75, passed away surrounded by his family on Wednesday, May 10, 2023, at St. Nicholas Hospital. He was born in Nebraska to the late Harold and Doris (Broughman) Strickland. He graduated from Minot High School in 1964. Ron was drafted into the United States Army and proudly served in the Vietnam War. He was employed at Wigwam Mills for 39 years and was an active union member of the UTWA for many years.

On November 3, 1973, Ron married the love of his life, Lorraine “Sissy” Allee and together they raised a beautiful family. Ron was a simple man, but enjoyed life to the fullest. Spending time with his family were the best memories he could make. His quick wit and simple phrases will be missed by all who were lucky enough to know him.

He enjoyed many activities including, golfing and bowling with friends, spending time at the Moose Lodge, hunting up north with his brother Butch and grandsons, especially visiting his sister and brother in Lake Park, MN catching walleyes.

 Ron is survived by his wife of almost 50 years, Sissy; children, Rhonda (Guy) Koepke, Melissa (Adam) Shircel, Ron “Moose” (Tracy) Strickland Jr., Joe (Stacey) Strickland and Jim (Lisa Martinez) Strickland; grandchildren, Amanda (Julio), Brittnie, Robert, Sean (Katie), Riley, Taylan, Eli, Hailey, Nolan, Charlie, Jaxon, Mia, Emma, Landon and Judah; eight great-grandchildren; siblings, Robbie Martin, Kitty (Lawrence) Bullinger, Butch (Pat) Strickland, Lyle (Nancy) Strickland, Cheryl (Lee) Bolle, Marla Lambourn, Kirby Sandvik, and Kim (Kathy) Sandvik; many other close family and friends further survive.

Along with his parents, Ron was preceded in death by two brothers, Ed (Barb) Strickland and Charles Kutter.
