Ronald Robert Hegle was born December 30, 1936, in Gwinner, North Dakota to Hjalmer and Josephine (Labounty) Hegle. He grew up in the Gwinner area, and graduated from Elliott High School in 1954. Following his graduation, he was united in marriage to Marilyn D. Hegle at Zion Lutheran Church in Breckenridge. They made their home in Ortonville and Breckenridge for a short time, before moving to Maple Lake in 1969 to raise their family. Ron was a proud owner/operator of his own trucking company for many years. He and Marilyn then owned and operated Ronson Door Sales in Fridley, retiring in 2016. Following Marilyn's death, Ron moved to Golden Valley to reside with his daughter. He was a former member of Zion Lutheran Church in Buffalo and a charter member of Holy Cross Lutheran Church in Maple Lake. Ron enjoyed spending time outdoors gardening, fishing, and bird watching. He also liked to cheer on the Minnesota Twins and watch any western movie or show that was on television. He also liked to try his luck at the casino, every now and then.
Ron is survived by his children, Barry (Rita) of Annandale, Tim (Lorie) of Annandale, Bryan (Marie) of Buffalo, and Trisha (Dan) Larson of Golden Valley; 10 grandchildren, Kristin (Darren) Glur, Jessica (Chad) Luebker, Ashley (Loren) Cook, Lisa Hegle (Jen Luchsinger), Aaron (Melanie) Hegle, Brienna Morey, Brittany Arnold (Tim Hanes), Lindsey Arnold (Josh Varner), Elin Larson and Gavin Larson; and 15 great-grandchildren, Jackson, Lilly, Landon, Blake, Addison, Boston, Cullen, Colton, Madelyn, Brantley, Crosby, Austin, Eli, Bentley, and Easton.
