Ron was born October 8, 1941 in St. Cloud, MN to Nicholas and Ermalinda (Winter) Laubach. He married Perci Krupke on May 23, 1964 at St. Louis Catholic Church in Paynesville. He owned and operated Laubach Chevrolet/Buick in Paynesville for over 40 years. He was a member of St. Louis Catholic Church and St. Louis Knights of Columbus Council 3820.
Ron was a spectator of and participant in many activities over his lifetime. His favorites included bowling, golf, football and baseball. He enjoyed trips to the casino, the Weather Channel, Minnesota Twins baseball, gummy bears and midnight trips to the kitchen for a snack. For many years, Ron always looked forward to morning coffee and talking smart with his buddies. Ron and Perci made their family home on Lake Koronis – he enjoyed living his life lakeside. Ron enjoyed spending time with friends, family, grandchildren and his very special dog Lucky. Ron will always be remembered for his sense of humor – he always had a joke to share and loved to see smiles on the faces of everyone he encountered.
Ron is survived by his devoted wife Perci, children Lisa (Donald) Feldewerd of Spring Hill, Lonnie Laubach of Phoenix, AZ, and Lane (Melissa) Laubach of Cold Spring, three grandchildren Brandon Feldewerd, and McKenzie and Amber Laubach, brother Robert (Sally) Laubach of Black River Falls, WI, and sisters Connie (Ray) Hedlund of St. Cloud, and Marjorie (Lloyd) Schultenover of Kimball.
Preceding him in death were his parents.
Ron has touched the hearts of many and will be dearly missed.
