Richard (Dick) Severson, 87, of Fargo passed away peacefully at Sanford Hospital surrounded by his loving family on March 25, 2014.
Dick was born on April 5, 1926 to Henry and Paula Severson and grew up in Fargo. He joined the Navy at age 17 and served his country in combat in the South Pacific during World War II. He married his sweetheart Anne Nelson on June 8, 1953 and during his 60 years of marriage, was a devoted husband, father, and grandfather. He took great pride in caring for and raising his children Rick, Ronda, David, Scott, Robert, and Beth.
Dick learned the printing trade after the war, initially working for Richtman’s Printing, and then for the Fargo Forum for 35 years until his retirement in 1990.
Dick loved spending time with his children and grandchildren throughout his life. He loved playing golf from his caddying days as a boy, and he shared his love of the sport with all of his family. He was also a proud veteran and recently joined an Honor Flight to the World War II Memorial in Washington, D.C. with his daughter Ronda.
Dick is survived by his wife Anne, his children Rick (Patsy) Severson, El Paso, TX, Ronda Severson, Fargo, David Severson, Minneapolis, Scott (Jill) Severson, West Fargo, Robert (Mary) Severson, Fargo, Beth Severson, Arlington, TX, and 13 grandchildren.
