Jerry Restad

Jerry Restad, 66, of Langdon, ND, passed away May 24, 2021, at Altru Hospital in Grand Forks, ND. Jerry was born January 19, 1955, in Langdon, ND, to Tory and Lucy (Fetsch) Restad. He grew up and attended school in the Wales and Langdon areas, graduating in 1973 from Langdon High School. He worked in agricultural sales for Langdon Implement until 1982 and then managed Restad Supply until 1992. He co-operated the race track in Kittson County from 1988 to 1990 and then ran Blue Ribbon Speedway just east of Langdon from 1991 to 1995. He currently managed Clyde Farm Service where he had worked for over 25 years. Jerry enjoyed making things fast. He was always tinkering on or fixing something in his own fashion. He liked racing and spending weekends at the track, fast cars, and corvettes. Jerry had the gift of gab and looked forward to wheeling and dealing while selling things. If you were looking for something, Jerry could find it. He was known for his good memory, especially of part numbers. He was a family man and spent lots of time with his children, grandchildren, and extended family. Jerry also enjoyed ice fishing and playing bingo. He was a member of Eagles Aerie #3454 and St. Alphonsus Church.

He was preceded in death by his parents, father-in-law Joe Koehmstedt, and brother-in-law Larry Koehmstedt. Mass of Christian Burial will be at 10:00 a.m. on Saturday, May 29, 2021, at St. Alphonsus Church in Langdon, ND.

Cindy and family,
I have many fond memories of hanging out with you and Jerry at your home! There were always a lot of good laughs, a few beers, and treasured friendship. Hugs my friend.

To Cindy and family, So sorry for the loss of Jerry. I would see him at the bakery from time to time. We would have a little visit before we were both on our way. May the Lord comfort and keep you all.

I will always remember seeing Jerry every Sunday at the Roxy Theater. It was alway a joy to see him. He would have sir wars with my son Tay at the candy counter, where they would take turns calling each other sir with everything they said. My son never really knew his name and always referred to him as sir. We will miss him.

Cindy and family, so sorry for your loss. Jerry always had a kind word to say to me and just remember you will not always feel this grief- Good memories will take over as time goes on! Prayers and hugs Cheri Henderson Olday

As was my habit, I was the first person to arrive at Jerry's beloved Blue Ribbon speedway and the first of my group to make friends with a remarkable person. I believe that we were friends even in absence of seeing each other as we could pick up years later like we had seen each other yesterday. We will meet again and restart a conversation that we began many years ago. My condolences to Cindy and the rest of the family. Your hearts must be breaking but we are thinking of you in your moment of need.
