Ronald James Benson

Ron was born July 15, 1970, in Albert Lea to Russ and Peggy Benson. He attended Albert Lea Schools. Ron worked at Farmstead Foods and other factories as a mechanic. He was an excellent auto mechanic and had a knack for fixing anything that didn’t work. We remember back when he was quite the comic and could always make you laugh.

Ron is survived by his dad, Russ (Jennifer) Benson, and sister, Sandy Roe; daughters, Heidi Heavner, Taylor Tiedemann, Emily Benson, Maci Benson, and Gabrielle (Gabby) Benson; Gabby’s sisters, Haley, Madison, and Skyler; grandchildren, Alyssa, Brexton, Kole, Bane, and Clarke. Ron is also survived by nieces, nephews, cousins, aunts, and uncles.
