Ronald Eugene was born on April 10, 1954 to Ernest E. and Joan A. (Hirschman) Jueden in Yankton, SD. He was raised on the family farm east of Hartington and attended country grade school prior to graduating from Hartington High School in 1972. Ron married Sheila Marie Leise on September 6, 1974 and was a member of Holy Trinity Catholic Church. He spent his entire life in Cedar County, working numerous jobs in/around the agricultural industry. He raised purebred Duroc hogs, milked Holstein cows, and was proud to participate in many livestock shows and events with his children. He was instrumental in getting his children involved in 4H and spent considerable time helping them prepare for competitions. Ron joined his son Heath’s lawn & landscaping service business many years ago and was fortunate to be able to work alongside his children and grandchildren for the last several years. He thoroughly enjoyed hunting and fishing with his family and friends, and had a true appreciation for nature and the great outdoors. He was passionate about helping people and knew the importance of a hard day’s work.
