Ronald "Ron" Magner

Ronald “Ron” John Magner, age 78 of Grey Eagle, MN and N Ft Myers, FL, passed away unexpectedly on Friday, January 21, 2022.

Everyone who knew Ron knows he would prefer a party over a funeral, so we will be holding a future gathering(s) in his honor.

Ron was born October 29, 1943 in Minneapolis to John and Lorraine (Howe) Magner. He married Dianne Huss on June 5, 1965. Ron grew up in Richfield and graduated from Richfield High School in 1961. After marrying Dianne they settled in Bloomington, until the cabin called him to move closer, so they settled in Rogers where they lived for more than 20 years and where they were members of Word of Peace Lutheran Church.

Ron began his career at Western Electric before working for Warner Industrial Supply (later Hagemeyer) for 43 years until his retirement. They then started enjoying their winters in sunny Florida where he would torment his MN relatives daily by telling them how warm it was. They continued to enjoy their summers on Little and then Big Birch Lakes.

Ron loved to hunt and fish. There also wasn’t a kid he couldn’t teach to waterski at the cabin. He was a member of the Rogers Lions Club and current member of the Grey Eagle Lions Club. During retirement his favorite past time was puttering in the garage or shed where all of his “keepers” allowed him to fix anything and everything and where he’d invite folks to stop by and enjoy a Blue Smoothie with him because in retirement “everyday is Saturday”.

Ron was a loving, supportive and fun husband, dad and “papa”. Survivors include his wife, Dianne Magner; children, Suzanne (Guy) Logan of Edina and Steve (Suzanne) Magner of N Ft. Myers; and seven grandchildren, Kianna, Kylie, Trevor and Talon Magner, and Julianne, Andrew and Laura Logan.

Ron was preceded in death by his parents; and brother, Michael.

Ron was an extraordinarily special guy who will be dearly missed by Dianne, his children, his grandkids and many other relatives and friends.
