Ronald A. Peterson

Ronald Peterson, 89, of Langdon, ND, passed away June 20, 2022, at Langdon Prairie Health Hospital.

Ronald Alfred Peterson was born October 10, 1932, in Vang, ND, to Alfred and Aldea (Gendreau) Peterson. He grew up and attended school in the Langdon area, graduating as the valedictorian from Langdon High School in 1950. On November 1, 1952, he was united in marriage to Marie Boe at United Lutheran Church in Langdon. They made their home in Langdon, where Ron farmed and had several other business ventures in his early years before he focused on the underground construction business he created in 1974. Ron and Marie traveled the state of ND with their three sons and their families for over 40 years, working in this construction business before he took a step back. Ron’s time for traveling ended, but he continued to be involved from home in all parts of the business until this year. His dream of his business being generational and never-ending is being fulfilled as his sons and a grandson are now at the helm. In the last few years, you could occasionally see Ron in his tractor again, back to his farming roots, working the land he loved. He was an extremely hard worker, enjoyed history, politics, and the stock market. Ron’s ultimate life-long goal was to make sure his wife, Marie, and his family were always going to be taken care of. Ron was a member of United Lutheran Church and Langdon Eagles Aerie #3454.

Surviving Ron are his wife of almost 70 years, Marie, of Langdon; children: Arlen Peterson (Pam) of Devils Lake, ND, Lynn Peterson (Becky) of Langdon, Jay (Susan) Peterson of Devils Lake, ND, Karla (Fred) Brauer of Livermore, CA, and Kim (Roger) Otto of Langdon; grandchildren: Tiffany and Preston (Arlen’s children), Lynsey, Brant and Benten (Lynn’s children), Bryce, Heather and Jayla (Jay’s children), Fred, Jason, Justin, Klayton and Jordyn (Karla’s children), JennaLee, Taryn, and Brenyn (Kim’s children); 23 great-grandchildren; sister Janice (Jim) LeMay of Chandler, AZ; sister-in-law Inez Riverside of Iron Mountain, MI; and several nieces, nephews, and in-laws. He was preceded in death by his parents; son Wayne; granddaughter Alissa; daughter-in-law Jennifer; and siblings: Marcel, Wenzel, and Anna Jean.

A funeral service will be held at 4:00 p.m. on Sunday, June 26, 2022, at United Lutheran Church in Langdon, ND. Burial will be at Lebanon Cemetery in Langdon, ND.

Ron and I shared many memories growing up on the farm together. One day I was hauling a truck load of grain to the elevator. On the way to the main highway I got too close to the edge of the road. The truck was tipped to the point of dumping the wheat into the ditch. I stopped the truck and Ron came to my rescue and drove the truck back on the road. Thank you Ron, as our dad probably would not have been happy with me if a load of wheat landed in the ditch.
