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.
