Print Obituary

     Ronald James Manwarren, the son of Eugene and Bonnie (Rudolph) Manwarren was born on September 10, 1947 in Garden City, Kansas.  He received his education in Spencer, Iowa where he coined the phrase “Smoking in the boys’ room”.

     On June 28, 1969, he had the honor of being united in marriage to Sandra Mae Albers at the Methodist Church in Holstein, Iowa.  They began their 50 years of marriage in Spencer, IA and were blessed with four beautiful, quick-witted, and highly talented children.  His work history included working at Spencer Foods, Heartland Press and later at JCL solutions until his retirement. Ron was very passionate about his work.

     He will be remembered for truly loving his family, more than he could ever express in words.  He loved old cars, especially his 1939 Ford Coupe, working in his yard and garden, and spending time hanging out in his “dream garage” with family and friends.  He was so proud of his family, especially his grandchildren. He always had a smile on his face and a twinkle in his eyes when he talked about them.

     Ron unexpectedly passed away Thursday June 4, 2020 at home doing what he loved, working in his garden.  He is preceded in death by his daughter, Jennie Jo, his parents, Eugene and Bonnie (Rudolph) Manwarren, father and mother-in-law, Clayton and Joyce (Ewoldt) Albers.

     He is survived by his wife of 50 years, Sandra Manwarren of Spencer, IA; three children:  Kelly Manwarren of Spencer, IA, Misty(Ethan) Small of Sioux Falls, SD, and Redge Manwarren of Spencer, IA; eight beautiful grandchildren; Mackenzie and Kendra Manwarren of Spencer, IA, Morgan, Rebecca and Judd Small of Sioux Falls, SD, Owen, Kathryn and Maverick Manwarren of Spencer, IA; three brothers; Doc (Val) Manwarren of Spirit Lake, IA, Greg (Linda) Manwarren of Spencer, IA, Norb(Kim) Manwarren of Spencer, IA Two sisters; Twila(Paul) Haldin of Iowa Falls, IA; and Cindy (Mike) Carpenter of Spencer, IA; sister-in-law Deb(Al)Weiland of Aurelia, IA; numerous nieces, nephews, cousins and many other special relatives and dear friends.

SERVICES
A Celebration Of Life will be held from 4:00 to 6:00 P.M., Saturday, June 13, 2020 at Ron's garage, 913 E.15th Street.

In lieu of flowers, a memorial fund has been established by the family.
