Ronald Ray Hamberger was born on November 3, 1948 to Raymond and Arlene (Hajek) Hamberger in Scotland, South Dakota. He was baptized into the Catholic faith on November 28, 1948 at St. George Catholic Church in Scotland. He graduated from Scotland High School in 1967. From 1963 to 1991, Ron owned and operated the Coast to Coast store in Scotland with his parents. After selling the store, he began his career as a truck driver. In his younger years, Ron competed in sprint car racing in Wagner and though he retired from racing his love of the sport never ceased. When not working, he enjoyed fishing and frequented Lake Henry often. He was a caring father and grandfather who loved spending time with his grandchildren. Ron was a laid-back man who could appreciate a good nap, but was also quick to give a helping hand. At the age of 67 years, Ron passed away in his residence in his beloved hometown of Scotland.
He is survived and remembered by his children: Becky (Damian) Greble of Sioux Falls, Steven (Amy) Hamberger of Watertown, MN, Cari Hamberger of Sioux Falls, and Jenny (Jared) Zweifel of Scotland; grandchildren: Noah, Ella, Zachariah, and Addison Greble, Jonah and Eli Hamberger, Brayden Hamberger, and Henry Zweifel; mother Arlene (Don) Nelles of Scotland; and sisters Connie (Gary) Nelson of Sioux Falls and Barb (Larry) Hubbling of Sioux Falls.
He was preceded in death by his father, paternal grandparents William and Pauline Hamberger, and maternal grandparents Frank and Vlasta Hajek.
