William “Bill” Vander Brink

December 5, 1938 ~ September 12, 2020

William “Bill” Vander Brink, 81, Sioux Falls, died Saturday, September 12, 2020, at the Sanford Centennial Cottage in Sioux Falls.

There are no services planned at this time.

William Vander Brink, son of Heiman and Everdena Vander Brink, was born on December 5, 1938, in Chandler, Minnesota.  As the 10th of 13 children, William was raised in Chandler, Minnesota where he completed his education through 8th grade.  William went on to lend his helpful hands-on farmlands. 

     On April 21, 1960, William married the love of his life, Ramona DeKing, at Holy Redeemer Catholic Church in Marshall, Minnesota.  After their marriage, William continued to work for various farmers in the area.  They joyfully welcomed their only child, Douglas Vander Brink, on May 29, 1961.  The couple longed for California’s climate and made the major move from Minnesota in 1966.

     Once in California, William cultivated his career in the oil industry as a production welder on drill bits through various companies including Smith Tool.  However, when Smith Tool relocated to Oklahoma, William took the opportunity to fully enjoy the California sun by spending his final working days at the famous Forest Lawn Memorial Park in Cypress, California.

     Shortly after retirement, the couple said goodbye to the great weather in California to be closer to their son, daughter-in-law and grandchildren in Sioux Falls, South Dakota.

No matter where William was, he happily had fun with his hobbies of fishing, camping, and motorcycling.  He especially enjoyed expeditions on ocean charter fishing boats in hopes of reeling in his favorite fish – the rock cod.  He also sweetly shared his passions and skills with his grandchildren who fondly remember practicing casting on the school playground.  He was elated to be there when the grandchildren caught their first bucket full of bullheads. 

    Clean chrome and classic cars were also cherished throughout his life.  In the 60’s and 70’s, he could usually be found at the dragstrip.  He would never allow eating in his cars, but his cars were so clean you could eat off the engine.

     Bill will be deeply missed by his wife, Ramona, Sioux Falls; one son, Doug (Lori) Vander Brink, Sioux Falls; two granddaughters, Samantha (Adam) Small, Sioux Falls, and Jennifer (Dustin) Hanisch, Worthing; and three great-grandchildren, Veronica, Keaton, and Brooke; one brother, John (Darlene) Vander Brink, Downey, California; four sisters, Sarah Gieselman, Dubuque, Iowa, Dena Kokot, Tuscan, Arizona, Audrey Vander Sluice, Banning, California, and Bertha (Eusebio) Carranza, Dover, Delaware.

     William was preceded in death by his parents, Heiman and Everdena Vander Brink, and five brothers, Leo Vander Brink, Henry Vander Brink, Herman Vander Brink, Chris Vander Brink, and Cornie Vander Brink, and one sister, Gertrude Vander Brink.

The salesman turned out to be the love of her life, Bob Bruning. Two years later, on April 11, 1975, Marilyn and Bob were married at St. Therese Catholic Church in Deephaven, MN. This union was blessed with three boys. Brian, Jeff, and J.R.

    Marilyn loved watching her boys play Hockey and Baseball. Marilyn made many friends during the years her boys played sports. Many of these friends were lifelong friends. She was the best chauffer because she played their kind of music loudly! Everyone thought of her as “Mom”.

Friends of the boys would always be welcomed at their house. The boys loved to tease her and she loved it when they did. As the boys grew into men, she created provided the most wonderful parties, elegant cards, and invitations. When the boys were married, she was instrumental in giving them the wedding of their dreams. Complete with incredible invitations and decorations. Marilyn began working as a Graphic Designer for Morgan Williams in the mid-90s, until she and Bob founded Bruning Marking and Promotions in 2006.

    Marilyn loved to travel and especially enjoyed the Ocean. She had always dreamed of retiring to a beach somewhere in the sun where she could have a casual little place, “M’s Sandbar”. She would be the aging hostess.  Beyond everything else, Marilyn loved her grandchildren. Just being around them gave her pure joy. You could find her baking or making pickles with them or sitting on the patio just talking. She felt the best gift she could give them was family, traditional values and her time. She enjoyed sitting around a bonfire listening to and singing Motown or classic oldies with her family and friends.

Raymond Anthony DeKing

January 10, 1937 ~ August 11, 2020

Raymond DeKing, 83, Sioux Falls, died Tuesday, August 11, 2020, at the Good Samaritan Center in Sioux Falls.

Memorial Services will be held at 3pm, Saturday, August 22, 2020, at Heartland Funeral Home.  Visitation with family present will begin at 1pm.

Raymond Anthony DeKing was born on January 10, 1937, in Marshall, MN, to Samuel and Johnna (Masarek) DeKing. Ray was one of five children. Their father died when Ray was just 5 years old. When their mother remarried, they lived on a farm near Marshall, MN. He grew up helping his stepfather on the farm doing all kinds of jobs. He was the first of his family to graduate high school. After graduating from Marshall High School, Ray held various jobs. These jobs included working at and owning a gas station. Most of Ray’s jobs were related to getting things from one point to another driving truck.  One of his first jobs after the farm was driving for milk producers who would load his truck to take to the processing centers. 

On May 17, 1958, in Morgan, MN, Ray married the love of his life, Carol Ricke. The couple made their home in Marshall and to this blessed union was born three children: Daniel, Michele, and Scott. Ray and Carol’s home was the most popular house in the neighborhood when he would pull in with the Henry’s Candy and Cigarette truck. All the kids in the area got excited when they saw that truck and Ray come home. They knew a treat was going to be theirs shortly. Ray loved to treat the kids! 

            In 1968, Ray and Carol moved their young family to Sioux Falls, SD. This move was also the beginning of a new truck route with Purolator Courier, carrying bank documents to processing centers, that Ray would drive for over a decade.  Ray was a driver for them until the early 80s, when he then began driving for Dizco, hauling mail from Sioux Falls to Murdo, SD. He drove this route for twenty years before his failing health demanded he gives up his long career as a driver.  As a driver, his eyes were always on the road and he would often stop to check out things that others had lost.  Sometimes, it was useful items like a bag of coins, that he used to buy his daughter a new bike. Other times, not such a nice find, but it was all part of the adventure.

            During the years, Ray and his family had many camping and fishing experiences. They would catch fish regularly and release them back to the water because no one wanted to clean them. Ray also was an amazing storyteller! He loved to see just how much he could get the grandchildren to believe. Some of the grandchildren were more gullible than others. Telling his stories was one of his ways of having fun with them.  He loved to collect things and had an extensive pen collection from various places he had been. Hats, movies, video games, and music CDs were among the items he collected. Ray loved his family beyond any of his collections and would share anything he had with them. When he noticed some of those loved ones were not returning their borrowed items, a system had to be devised to make sure he got his music, games, or videos back.  This system was called the Grandpop-n-go which ensured he knew just who had what. Ray loved to play bingo and made sure he played at least a couple of times a week. He had a lot of people who enjoyed his company and were drawn to him. One of his prized wins, after becoming a resident of a nursing home, was a box of “Puffs Kleenex” because the kind they provided at the home were the scratchy kind. Ray loved to watch races and any of the old Westerns on tv, but his favorite was the series “Gunsmoke” because something good always came in the end. Listening to the old country singers was something Ray enjoyed throughout his life. In his younger years, he enjoyed turning a wrench and helping in the pits of local racetracks.  

       Ray will be deeply missed by his wife, Carol DeKing, Sioux Falls; two children, Daniel (Kim) DeKing, Sioux Falls, and Michele (Charles) Thompson, Sioux Falls; five grandchildren, Nicole (Tyler) Neal, Jessica (Will) Sechser, Matthew (Kara) Thompson, Joe DeKing, and Sally (Michael) Ackerman; seven great-grandchildren: Aidan, Maia, and Owen Fritz, Spencer and Charlie Sechser, and Jaiden and Justin Thompson; one sister, Ramona (William) Vander Brink, Sioux Falls; and many nieces, nephews and a host of friends.

     Ray was preceded in death by one son, Scott DeKing, his parents, Sam and Johanna (Masarek) DeKing, and three brothers, Richard Deking, Roy DeKing, and Earl DeKing.
