Ronald Emanuel Hubner was born July 21, 1936, in Avon, South Dakota to Burnell and Minnie Hubner. He lived in the Avon area until he was 17 years old, at which time he moved to the Brandon area with his parents, brother, Delmer, and sister, Myrna. Ron met his wife-to-be on a blind date. They were married on July 20, 1958. Two girls were born in this union, Ronda, in July 1959, and Renee, in September 1961.

Ron worked for the Brandon Lumber Company until he joined the Armed Services. Upon his return, he worked for Greenley Packing Company and Auto Body Specialties, until his retirement in 2006.

Ron especially liked spending time with all of his family and friends. Ron could be found, most mornings, at Burger King or Hardee’s for their breakfast. Gardening was very important to him. Ron was the hardest-working man one would ever meet. Up until his passing, he spent every spare second working in his garden, researching his next planting season, or making rugs on a loom. He was known for his huge and productive crops. His passion was sharing his produce with friends and neighbors. He always over-planted his garden and would bring boxes of produce to local shelters for everyone to enjoy.

When he wasn’t working, he would spend time at his great-grandchildren’s sporting events or going to dinner with friends.

Ron is survived by his wife, Gail Hubner; his two daughters, Ronda (Greg) Hanson, and Renee Bruggeman; four grandchildren, Heath (Vanessa), Heidi, Casey, and Kiley (Ross); four great-grandchildren, Conner, Owen, McKenzie, and Blake; and his sister, Myrna Ford,

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

    My mornings at work will not be the same with out seeing Ron! He lit up the room with his contagious smile every time he walked in the door!! I have been seeing him almost every morning for the past 4 years at Hardee’s. It started at the east 10th street store and when they shut that down he started coming to the Minnesota store. I won’t forget that first day he seen me at the Minnesota store after they shut my store down he just smiled and gave me a hug and told me he’s glad I came over to that store so I can keep making him smile! Our thing was telling each other to stay outta trouble. He always asked me how things were going, asked about how my daughter was doing. He was so kind and he will never be forgotten! Our whole crew will miss him very very much! Till me meet again Ron ♥️
