Obituary for Ronald L. Stenerson

RONALD LEE STENERSON was born to Harvey and Doris (Thompson) Stenerson on the farm in Nordland Township of Lyon County, Minnesota on November 28, 1945. He was baptized at Hope Lutheran Church in Minneota, Minnesota on January 16, 1946. At an early age, he moved with his family to Russell, Minnesota where he attended school. In 1958 he relocated with his family once again to Granby, Colorado for two years before returning to Russell. Ron enlisted in the U.S. Army in 1963 and was first stationed in Korea and then Vietnam. He returned home to Russell in 1966, and was married to Sharon Maxine Gravley on August 13, 1966 at the First Presbyterian Church in Russell. The couple made their home in Tyler, Minnesota where they have remained ever since. Shortly after his return to the country, Ronnie started his career at Lyon-Lincoln Electric in April of 1966 working in the shop and then worked his way up to lineman. In 1996, he became the line superintendent, a position he held until his retirement in November of 2011. Ron thoroughly enjoyed his job at the electric company. He considered himself blessed every morning that he was able to get up and do the work he loved. On August 16, 2018 Ron passed away at the Avera Sunrise Manor in Tyler at the age of 72 years, 8 months, and 19 days.

One of Ronnie’s favorite activities was riding his motorcycle. He was a member of the Roaring Lyons Motorcycle Club and rode in several parades in addition to the trips made to numerous parts of the U.S. and Canada with Sharon and his friends. He also enjoyed hunting, fishing, and spending time at their cabin on Lake Shaokatan. Ron’s active lifestyle introduced him to many close friends over the years. He will be greatly missed.

Ron is survived by his wife, Sharon; son, Jeff and his wife, Rachel of Tyler; siblings, Jerry of Russell and Perry of Fairmont, Minnesota; four grandchildren, Jacey and Jarrett Stenerson and Luke and Anthony Johnson; siblings-in-law, Dick Williams, Dewey Gravley and Leroy (Sharon) Gravley, Shirley Thompson, and Beverly (Norvin) Viergutz; and many nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his parents, Harvey and Doris; sister, Melanie Williams; and infant brother and infant sister, Barbera.

Memorials may be directed to the Avera Sunrise Manor in Tyler or Avera@Home Hospice.
