RONALD S. STENSETH
November 21, 2019
Ronald S. Stenseth, age 64, passed away on Saturday, November 16, 2019, at his home from the effects of prostate cancer. He was born on December 4, 1954 in Madison, the son of Quintin and Hazel (Bang) Stenseth.
Ron grew up on the family farm in the Town of Springdale, he attended the Ridgeview School and graduated from Mount Horeb High School, and later MATC with a degree in Marketing. On June 2, 1990, he was united in marriage to Kathy Root at the Springdale Lutheran Church. Ron was a lifelong member of the Springdale Lutheran Church. Ron's strong work ethic that he learned on the farm carried through his life. He had worked for several vending companies in the Madison area, and retired from Madison Coffee. Ron was always a proud and loving dad to his sons, Matt and Danny. He loved Wisconsin sports and could amaze you with his wealth of sports trivia knowledge. But his favorite teams were those on which his sons competed through the years.
Ron is survived by his wife, Kathy; sons, Matthew and Daniel; siblings, Ann Wealti, Elaine (Arlen) Spaanem, David Stenseth, and Jane Stenseth. He is further survived by his mother-in-law, Joan Root; sisters-in-law, Kim (Rodger) Goke, Karen (Steve) Meier and Pamela (Donald) Solberg; and many nephews and nieces.
He was preceded in death by his parents; brother, Philip Stenseth; brother-in-law, Lyle Wealti; and father-in-law, James Root.
