    Ramy was born March 3, 1930, in Logan County, the son of Wendelin and Mary Eva (Gross) Wangler. He was raised on the family farm and attended country school near St. Boniface Church in Logan County. Ramy served in the U.S. Army in the Korean War with the Engineer Battalion from 1951-53. Ramy married Anna Mary Werner on June 10, 1953, in Emmons County. They were blessed with five children. Following Anna’s illness and hospitalization in 1963, Ramy essentially became a single parent and was dedicated to keeping his family together and raising his children.

    While he completed school through the eighth grade, before later entering the military, in later years with three of his kids in tow, he went to college in Wahpeton at the School of Science and received a degree as a diesel technician. Ramy worked for 39 years at Nelson International before retiring in 1998.

    Ramy married Rosemary Schumacher on Jan. 23, 1982, in Bismarck. They continued to live in Bismarck and were blessed with 36 years of marriage. They united their two families as one and Ramy and Rose loved all their families deeply. Ramy had a lifelong appreciation for music and singing. He was a member of the Western Minnesota Steam Threshers Reunion at Rollag, Minn.

    Thanks so very much to our Rollag family for all the support in these difficult times. He loved the people, the machinery, and consequently the show. It definitely improved his quality of life, and when you get right down to it, that is REALLY what we are all about. Thanks again, on behalf of Rose (his wife),......... Ray, Joyce, Nicole, Stephanie, Andrew and the rest.

    Your dad was a quality guy Ray. Though the opportunity may not come for a time, I'll enjoy making his better acquaintance. May the peace of Christ attend you during this time of separation.
