Obituary for Richard James "Dick" Stasson

Richard James “Dick” Stasson, age 87, of Brooklyn Park, was welcomed into his eternal life on December 19, 2021.

Dick was born on the family farm in Morton, Minnesota to Dennis Francis Stasson and Mary Magdeline (Fernbaugh) Stasson on January 6,1934. His family lived on the farm until he was 13 years old when they moved to Minneapolis where Dick graduated from North High School in 1951.

Dick joined the army and was stationed in Korea. After returning home, he met Margaret Ann Sexton who he married on August 31,1957 at Ascension Catholic Church in Minneapolis. They made their home in Brooklyn Park where they raised their four children, and became faithful members of St. Alphonsus Catholic Church since 1964.

Dick loved meeting people, loved life and had a great smile. Dick worked in sales for Minnesgasco and Marsh Heating and Air in Brooklyn Park. Dick was an avid golfer, and a member of the Daytona Golf and Country Club for many years. For several of those years, Dick was Men's Club president and he loved traveling around the US golfing. He even boasted about a few holes-in-one! When his family was young, Dick enjoyed bowling and was on a league. He loved to be outdoors snowmobiling and spent many hours in his garage ensuring his snowmobiles were running properly. He loved downhill skiing, taking several trips to Michigan to ski the more challenging runs. The family enjoyed time together in their backyard pool where they hosted several parties. In his later years, Dick played cards with his golf buddies at Daytona.

Our son recently passed away and of course you never expect to have to deal with this for your children so my wife and I were not only devastated but didn’t know what to do or where to turn next. Evans-Nordby was recommended to us by our Priest and I’m so glad he did. From the moment I talked to Tina on the phone I could tell we were in good hands as she took care of every detail. We met with her the next day and she went through all the aspects of what we were to expect in the coming days, weeks, then months ahead. Every employee we had contact with at Evans-Nordby was kind, compassionate and extremely professional. Thanks Tina and to all at Evans-Nordby for making an unbearable experience at least tolerable.
