He is very fondly remembered by his brothers and sisters in-law, nieces, nephews, cousins, extended family, and many good friends.
He was the son of the late Myrtle and Clarence Sherod of Montevido. He is preceded in death by his son Kevin Sherod, his brother in-laws Clifford Andresen and Duwayne Larson.
He was a kind man with the highest integrity in business and in family life.
Born November 24th 1943, baptized at Eidskog Lutheran Church and Confirmed at Trinity Lutheran Church in Montevido in 1958. He was a member of the Boy Scouts, Graduated from Montevideo Sr High, was part of the Blandin Community Leadership Program, Served on the Montevideo City Council for 4 years, was part of Western Minnesota Prairie Waters, owned and operated jointly with family - Sherod Construction, Fiesta City Motel, Storage Unlimited, and 212 Car Wash in Montevideo and was a longtime member of Trinity Lutheran Church.
In 1961 Ron met the love of his life Diane, they were married October 13th 1962 and they had 3 children together. They have spent the last 57 years by each other’s side. Facing everything life challenged them with by holding onto one another.
He loved cars, fishing, traveling, collecting antiques, and most of all spending time with his family. He was a gifted builder and creator of many things, houses, cars, pole barns, furniture, and stained glass (which many of us have as tokens of his love and talent).
Above all, Ron was a hardworking, dedicated, man of faith and integrity. He was the very best husband, grandpa, and great-grandpa to us whose lives he has helped build and shape. He will be deeply missed beyond comprehension.
A memorial service to celebrate Ron’s life will be held in Montevideo at a later date.
