Ronald Weiss

May 30, 1934 — March 29, 2023

Ronald D. Weiss, 88, of Fergus Falls, died Wednesday, March 29, 2023 at PioneerCare in Fergus Falls.

Ronald Dale Weiss was born May 30, 1934, to Herbert J. and Linda M. (Lund) Weiss in Pelican Rapids, MN. He graduated from Pelican Rapids High School in 1952.

On June 9, 1954 Ron married his high school sweetheart, Ardythe Larson in Pelican Rapids. The couple lived life working together and supporting each other in everything.

He worked at various creameries ending with Mid-America in Fergus Falls, from 1965 until his retirement in 1996. Ron drove courtesy car for Nelson Ford in Fergus Falls for a few years. Moving to Moorhead in 2002 he followed his calling to jail ministry. He worked as Chaplain at Clay County Jail. Ron spent the last three years back in Fergus Falls, still looking forward every day to who he could minister to or introduce to Jesus.

Ron’s life-long passion was people. He was kind, giving, and always had an encouraging word to share. He particularly loved sharing the Gospel and what Jesus had done for him and how lives could be changed.

He made friends for life, loved well and indiscriminately. Till we are together again, God Bless our memories of Ronald D. Weiss.

Preceding him in death were his father, Herbert Weiss; mother, Linda Weiss, and brother, Arlan Weiss.
