Obituary

Richard C. Robertson, 49, of Fergus Falls, died Sunday, May 7, 2017, at Lake Region Healthcare, surrounded by his family.

Richard was born on June 4, 1967 in Fergus Falls, MN, the son of Vincent and Virginia (Fridgen) Robertson. He attended Our Lady of Victory Catholic School, and graduated from Fergus Falls High School. Richard went on to attend the University of Minnesota. After living in St. Paul, Rich made his home in Fergus Falls, and spent many years working in the construction industry, until his health forced him to retire.
In 1991, Richard married Rebecca Wallgren in Moorhead, Minnesota. They were blessed with a son, Alec, who was the light of his life. Rich was incredibly proud of Alec and loved him very much. They shared an incredible bond, which included sports, music, and camping.

Because he knew the pain and struggle of addiction, he took great pride and joy in helping others along their journey to recovery. A hero to many, Richard was extremely generous with his time, talent, and resources as he assisted individuals cope with their addictions. Richard will be remembered as an example of someone who lived his hope of recovery.

Richard is survived by his son, Alec of Minneapolis; his former wife, Rebecca Robertson of Richville; his mother, Virginia Robertson of Fergus Falls; four siblings, Kay (Jeff) Demmer of Elbow Lake, Steve (Gretchen) of St. Paul, Michael (Mary) of Fergus Falls, and Tony (Therese) of Auckland, New Zealand; and many nieces and nephews, relatives, and friends.

He was preceded in death by his father, Vincent; and two brothers, John and Jim.
