Ronald Raymond Revier was born April 10, 1942, in Olivia, MN to Roger and Ella Revier. He grew up outside of Olivia on the Revier Farm. He married Marie Houdek on October 28, 1961 and they were blessed with six sons. Ron was a dedicated, life-long farmer who took great care and pride of his farm and equipment. He was a man that told many, long stories, ending with “ain’t that right, Randy?” He also liked going through Randy’s scrap and junk piles to make something new with it. Many of his projects were hung up for display at his house and at the farm. Ron enjoyed going to many tractor shows and agriculture events where he collected numerous toy tractors. He would load up the mighty Pontiac Catelina vehicle with his sons and take them to stock car races. Ron would use the same vehicle to transport Marie on her newspaper routes. His grandchildren were his biggest blessing whom he loved dearly; he entertained them with his stories and passed on many life lessons to them.
Ronald is survived by his wife, Marie Revier of Olivia; his sons: Randy (and Dee) Revier of Olivia, Robert (and Charlotte) Revier of Copenhagen, Denmark, Danny (and Shareen) Revier of Houston, TX, Paul Revier (and Shantelle George) of Bird Island, and Pat Revier of Cold Spring; his 17 grandchildren: Becky (and Darin) Ditterich, Brittany (and Tony) Lampher, Brady Revier, Rhea Revier, Ella Revier, Jared Slagter, Jenna (and Nick) Bach, Derek (and Stephanie) Revier, Dallan Revier, Aasha Revier, Jacob (and Emily) Revier, Zachary Revier, McKailey George, Ayden George, Annalyse Revier, Vayda Revier, Ethan Revier, and Brekin Revier; and his eight great-grandchildren: Nolan and Jack Ditterich, Theodore and Piper Lampher, Collin Slagter, Aurelia Bach, Bowie and Enzo Revier; and his brothers, Gerald (and Karen) Revier and Don (and Karen) Revier. Ronald was preceded in death by his parents, Roger and Ella; his son, Dean Revier; and his siblings, Marion and Gene.
