Ronald E. Rieck was born April 4, 1948, to Rudolph and Marie (Artz) Rieck in Aberdeen, SD.  This is the area where he was raised and attended school. Following graduation from Aberdeen Roncalli High School, Ronald furthered his education at Northern State College in Aberdeen.

Ronald was employed at both Case IH and Farm Power in Aberdeen before becoming a self-employed “jack of all trades” who could fix anything.  He eventually became the owner and operator of Ace Appliance, where he remained for many years.

He was preceded in death by his son, Ronald Jr; his parents, Rudolph and Marie; his brother, Richard; and one granddaughter, Ashley Rieck.
