Obituary for Ronald W. Holbrook
Ronald W. Holbrook, 65, of Fargo, ND, died Friday, November 7, 2014 at the VA Hospital in Fargo, surrounded by his family.

Ronald Wayne Holbrook was born October 9, 1949 in Chicago, IL to Lester and Kathrine (Nordvedt) Holbrook. He grew up in Seattle, WA, and eventually ended his travels in Fargo.

Trying his hand at his own businesses of mechanic and a towing company, he decided to do what he enjoyed, which was trucking. He drove for Northern Improvement and Strata, before moving on to work for Pepsi Co. He was so proud to be a “Pepsi Driver”. He was driven to early retirement in 2010 due to his COPD.

Ronald, also known as “Shorty”, was a friend to all who crossed his path. He was willing to look for the good in all and was always wanting to be there for his family.
His great personality and sense of humor will be greatly kept in our thoughts and he will be missed daily.

Ronald is survived by his daughters, Kathryn (Gerald) Goerts, Fargo, ND; Angela (Allen) Brawn, Phoenix, AZ; son, Lester Holbrook, Fargo, ND; sisters, Beverly (Bruce) Johnson, Barb Olson, Bonnie Olson, Robin Holbrook; nine grandchildren; and many nieces and nephews.

He was preceded in death by his wife, Connie; his parents; brothers, Robert and Bill Holbrook; and sister, Bernice Edmunds.

Debby Stevens
I'm a Christian, and I'm a daughter of Allan B. Holbrook, now in heaven. My married name is Debby Stevens.
My parents, Allan and Marie, were devout Christians, and had 10 children. They were both school teachers, but Mom quit teaching at public school after marriage. But both Mom and Dad home-schooled us all - starting when I was in 1st grade - that's when they came to the decision to home-school us. Dad earned an income through being an English teacher here in Traverse City, for man years. Dad started some Bible meetings that took place in the homes of friends of ours and in our own. He was the main teacher in it, and it was in a discoursing style - he would talk about spiritual things with the fathers of the families, each time, and all the children of the families would sit and listen to it all.
