Richard Gustafson

Richard Gustafson, 91, was reunited with his son, Cole Gustafson, on the morning of June 16, 2021. Richard is survived by his wife of 68 years, Darelyne; his two children, Lori and Max; six grandchildren; and seven great-grandchildren.

Richard was born on the Gustafson family farm on December 8, 1929, to Ruth and Albert Gustafson. Growing up he was a proud Eagle Scout, played a fantastic game of basketball, and served his country in the Korean War. But those who knew Richard, will likely remember him as a farmer.  Richard wasn’t just a good farmer, he was a great one. Someone once said that Richard could grow corn on a black-top highway if he wanted. He took his job very seriously, even insisting that he skip the first grade so that he could help out on the family farm.

Richard was a farmer, through and through. True farmers know that it isn’t really about the crop or the cattle — it is about providing for their family — and that is what Richard did, right up until the end.

“Take off your gloves and put them down, no more sweat and worry for you now. Your labor is done, your home now is heaven; no more must you wait. Your legacy lives on, your love of the land… and we will close the gate.” — We love you, Grandpa.

A funeral service was held  Monday, June 21, 2021 at Chisago Lake Lutheran Church in Center City. Condolences can be left at www.grandstrandfh.com.
