Ronald Lloyd Lebert was born on January 22, 1946, in Sleepy Eye to Lloyd and Harriet (Murphy) Lebert. Ron grew up on a farm outside of Sleepy Eye and graduated from Sleepy Eye Public High School in 1964. After high school, Ron worked as a feed sales truck driver for MoorMans in Kasson, MN, for his entire career. In 1982, Ron married Sandra Kay White-Lau, and they lived in Kasson with Ron’s sons. In July 2020, Ron moved to New Ulm to be closer to his family and friends. Ron was always ready to help his family in any way he could, especially with house projects and yard work. He enjoyed fishing, playing cribbage and pinochle, spending time outdoors, and having Thursday coffee with his friends. Ron’s greatest pride was his family, and he will be dearly missed by them and all who loved him. May his memory be a blessing.

In lieu of flowers, memorials are preferred to the Our Savior’s Lutheran Church Youth Program.
