Winton Raymond Snobeck age 86 of Detroit Lakes, MN died April 13, 2014 at Essentia Health in Fargo, ND. Winton Raymond Snobeck was born June 15, 1927 to Alvin and Rosie (Johnson) Snobeck at his parents farm in Pine Lake Township, rural Gonvick, MN. He attended grade school at Pine Lake District #36 School. He farmed with his Dad for several years. He married the love of his life Veronica Lindberg on November 28, 1953 at her parents farm near Gully, MN. To this union were born two children, Daniel and Suellyn. Ray and Vonnie farmed a few years before moving to Aurora, MN, where he was employed by the St. James Mining Co. from 1956-1962. Later he worked at Amundgaard Implement Co. in Warren, MN for several years. He and his son also operated Snobeck Auto Repair in Wadena, MN. Ray and Vonnie later moved to Miles City, Montana, where he worked for Plains and Prairie Implement for several years. Due to wanting to be more involved with the grandchildren, the couple then moved to Detroit Lakes, where he gained employment with the City Street Department. He retired from there at the age of 70 and continued to reside in Detroit Lakes until his death. After retirement they enjoyed traveling to the bucking horse sale in Montana which they attended 19 years in a row. They also enjoyed many vacations with the children and grandchildren. Ray enjoyed running over to Fargo for numerous breakfasts. He made wood working his hobby and gave many beautiful handmade gifts to friends and family. He was a very loving and thoughtful Christian husband and father. His presence will be greatly missed by family and friends, especially by his loving wife and constant companion.
