Ron gave in death, as he gave in life. Ron was an organ and tissue donor, being able to continue to bless others even in his passing.

Ron was born on June 28, 1947, the son of Donald and Velma (Anderson) Roberts of Manly. He was a graduate of North Central High School. Ron was passionate for farming, he was a third generation farmer and loved tending to the fields. When Ron wasn’t busy farming he also worked at LeHigh Cement, the Manly Elevator, as well as Ruan. On May 26, 1987, he married Beverly Carlson in Manly, the couple spent 34 happy years together.

Those who knew Ron will remember him as a man who knew how to “wheeling dealing”, anything and everything could be bargained for price. Ron was an avid John Deere collector, he enjoyed watching NASCAR, rooting for the Minnesota Twins and having coffee with his Casey friends. He and Beverly loved traveling to Texas and Florida to get away from the cold weather the midwest has to offer. Ron was a long time member of Bethlehem Lutheran Church in Manly. He served his community on the church council and the Elevator Board. Ron’s sense of humor is something loved ones are going to miss dearly.
