Ronald James Tamm, 69, died peacefully at home on April 13th, with his wife and children at his side, after a long courageous battle of a rare dementia.
Ron was born on April 11, 1953 in St. Cloud to Edwin and Doreen (Krebs) Tamm. He attended school in Albany. He married JoAnne Majerus on August 29, 1971. After their marriage, he worked at Fingerhut and then at Kraft Foods in Albany for 20 years, as well as being a dairy farmer on the “1890” Century Farm belonging to the Platz families. He purchased the farm in 1980 after the passing of his mother.
He was very proud to be a descendant of the Platz families which laid claim in 1863 on the land he one day owned and they raised their 4 children. He remained there until his death. He enjoyed fishing, bowling and living a farm life with his wife and kids. He was very proud to celebrate “50” years of marriage to his loving wife on her birthday.
He is survived by his wife, JoAnne, and their children: Stacy (Dan) Foss of Osakis, Ross Tamm of Albany, Randy (Ember) Tamm of Albany, and LeAnne (Ryan) Barthel of Melrose. He had 8 wonderful grandchildren and 4 great-grandchildren.
He is preceded in death by his father Edwin and mother Doreen, and step-father Ed Gerads.
