Richard “Rick” Ingwaldson passed away from heart failure in his home in White Sulphur Springs on Thursday, Oct. 9, 2008, at the age of 55.

He was born Nov. 23, 1952, in Crosby, N.D., to Ed and Barbara Ingwaldson. Rick and his family moved to Billings in 1967, and he graduated from Billings Senior High School in 1971.

He lived the last 20 years of his life in the heart of hunting and fishing country, fulfilling his passion for both. He was a natural-born skier and golfer, as well as an accomplished artist and woodworker. He had his own unique way of looking at things, always wore a smile, and his free-spirit approach to life took him down many diverse paths. He made numerous friends along the way and in some way influenced each of them. His casual demeanor and quick wit will be missed by all who knew him.

Survivors include his parents of Laurel; three sisters, Marlene Semingson of Minot, N.D., Kim Ingwaldson-Poulsen of Oberon, N.D., and Joann Davison of Meridian, Idaho; two brothers, Ed Ingwaldson of Billings, and Larry Ingwaldson of Laurel; two daughters, Amy Ingwaldson of Bozeman and Kelly Fortune of Helena; and one grandchild, Brenna Fortune of Helena.

Cremation has taken place at Twichel Funeral home in White Sulphur Springs. A memorial service will be held at a later date.

Civil Dialogue

We provide this community forum for readers to exchange ideas and opinions on the news of the day. Passionate views, pointed criticism and critical thinking are welcome. Name-calling, crude language and personal abuse are not welcome. Moderators will monitor comments with an eye toward maintaining a high level of civility in this forum. Our comment policy explains the rules of the road for registered commenters. If you receive an error after submitting a comment, please contact us.

If your comment was not approved, perhaps:

    1. You called someone an idiot, a racist, a dope, a moron, etc. Please, no name-calling or profanity (or veiled profanity -- #$%^&*).

    2. You rambled, failed to stay on topic or exhibited troll-like behavior intended to hijack the discussion at hand.

    3. YOU SHOUTED YOUR COMMENT IN ALL CAPS. This is hard to read and annoys readers.

    4. You have issues with a business. Have a bad meal? Feel you were overcharged at the store? New car is a lemon? Contact the business directly with your customer service concerns.

    5. You believe the newspaper's coverage is unfair. It would be better to write the editor at This is a forum for community discussion, not for media criticism. We'd rather address your concerns directly.

    6. You included an e-mail address or phone number, pretended to be someone you aren't or offered a comment that makes no sense.

    7. You accused someone of a crime or assigned guilt or punishment to someone suspected of a crime.

    8. Your comment is in really poor taste.

    9. Don't write a novel. If your comment is longer than the article you're commenting on, you might want to cut it down a bit. Lengthy comments will likely be removed.
