After a long battle with lung cancer, Ronald Clair McNutt, 75, Alexandria, died at his home on June 12, 2012, surrounded by his loving wife Judy and sons Brian and David.
Ron was born in Conneaut, Ohio. He grew up in Indiana and attended high school in Frankfort. He was a veteran of the U.S. Navy.
Ron worked in electronics repair in the late 1950s through the 1980s. He was an avid handyman and also worked as a mechanic for many years. He lived in many other states throughout his life and spent his last 25 years in his favorite state of Minnesota. He also owned and operated businesses with his wife around Alexandria in the 1990s.
He was one of eight children born to the late Robert and Ellen (Robbins) McNutt and was the beloved husband of Judy McNutt for more than 40 years. Surviving are his two sons, Brian (Shannon) McNutt of Alexandria and David McNutt of Alexandria; four sisters, Carol Arman, Faye McNutt, Ellen Lois Kramer and Pat Dykty. Also surviving are many other nieces and nephews whom were blessed to know him.
Ron was preceded in death by his brothers, Doug and Robert Jr. and sister, Joyce Byrne.
Ron absolutely loved fishing. It was his passion in life and he would often compete in bass tournaments with his two sons and his special friend, Doug. Getting up at 4 a.m. was no match for this competitor. He was always searching for that sowbelly bass. Ron touched the lives of many people with his unique and slapjack sense of humor. He had no problem finding ways to make people laugh.
A private family memorial service was held at Anderson Funeral Home on Tuesday, June 19, 2012.
Arrangements are with Anderson Funeral Home in Alexandria; www.andersonfuneral.net.
