Ronald Gene Stork was born on November 5, 1937 in Blair, Nebraska to Everett

and Verna (Wulf) Stork. He passed away on May 17, 2019 in Sun City, Arizona

after a seven month struggle with heart related health issues.

A Memorial Service will be held on Wednesday, May 29th, at 11 a.m. at First

Ron was baptized and confirmed at St. Paul's Lutheran Church north of

Arlington. He attended Orum School for his first two years of schooling and then

St. Paul's School. Ron graduated from Blair High School with the Class of 1955.

After graduation Ron began farming with his father. He married Judy Jones on

August 1, 1959 at First Lutheran Church which they joined and where Ron was

an usher and served on the Church Council. They were the parents of two

children, Shari and Scott.

4-H was an important part of growing up in the Stork Family. Everett organized

the Orum Feeders 4-H Club in 1949 for the neighborhood friends. Ron later was

the leader of the club and then his son Scott took over leadership as the club

continued to be in existence for over 40 years. The highlight of Ron's 4-H club

days was showing the Grand Champion Steer at the Ak-Sar-Ben Livestock

Show in 1957. Farming and feeding hogs and cattle were an important part of

Ron's life. He was a member of the Washington County Livestock Feeders. In

his spare time when not working on the farm, he enjoyed boating and

snowmobiling. About forty years ago he began golfing and became an avid

golfer. He was known to golf in later years as many as 6 days a week. He also

enjoyed playing cards. For the past twenty or so years, Ron & Judy have been

"snowbirds" enjoying the warmer weather (and golf) in Peoria, Arizona during the

winter months.

Ron is survived by his wife Judy of nearly 60 years, daughter Shari and her

husband Scott McCain of Fremont, son Scott and his wife Nancy of Orum.

Grandchildren are Derek (Anna) Stork, Lindsey McCain (Mike) Kindler and, Jarett

(Katlynn) Stork, Lucas (Olivia) McCain, and Justin Stork. Great Grandchildren

Parker & Brooks McCain, Brinley Kindler, and Scott Levi Stork. Siblings Roger

(Donna) Stork, Susan (Jim) Bensen, Janice (Tom) Lippincott. Sister-in-law Sue

and Verna Stork, parents-in-law Wallace and Maude Jones, and brother-in-law

Russ Jones.
