Ralph Windschitl, 67, passed away at his home on January 3, 2021.
Funeral services were held Jan. 8 at the Brenny Family Funeral Chapel, Staples.
Interment will be at the Motley Public Cemetery.
Ralph was born to Arnold and Loretta (Faerber) Windschitl on March 23, 1953 in New Ulm. He graduated from Stewart High School. He enlisted in the United States Marine Corp in 1971 and was proud to serve our country. Ralph married Jenny Sjostrom, in Long Prairie. He was a construction worker most of his life. There was no better carpenter than Ralph; he could make anything you requested. He also enjoyed cooking, reading, fishing, nature and the history channel. Ralph could always be seen with his four legged companion, Buddy - there is no doubt the two of them are now reunited.
Ralph is survived by three daughters, Jill (Blaine) Tate and their children, Lilly, Robin, Carley, Nate, Mack, Halaina, Henry, Hadley and Gavin; Ellie (Luis) Acuña and their children, Solaña and Solice; Kacey Tubbs (Joshua) and their children, Wyatt Dunn and Riley Tubbs; two great-grandchildren, Kyle and Hazel Schrader; the love of his life, Jenny; seven brothers, Gary, Tony, Bob, Leo, Paul, Tom and Roger; two sisters, Joan Arango and Rita Miller; many nieces and nephews and his lifelong friend, Ron Hagmen.
He is preceded in death by his parents; one sister, Carol and one brother, Jim.
