Ronald Gerald Nesbit was born on July 19, 1950 in Blue Earth to Richard and Mildred (Hanke) Nesbit. He attended Blue Earth High School. He married his high school sweetheart, Gaye Wirth, on August 7, 1970, in Blue Earth. Ron and Gaye owned and managed Wirth Brothers Water Distributing in Blue Earth. Ron and Gaye were married 43 years. Ron and Gaye would go on to have 3 children, Daniel (Jamie), Alicia (Brent), and Michael (Onna).

After Gaye’s passing, Ron was blessed to meet Linda Beach. Ron and Linda spent the last 8 years enjoying life together, spending time on the golf course and traveling as they could. Ron often boasted that one of his most recent accomplishments was teaching Linda to golf; however, he was becoming very worried that she would soon be beating him on the golf course.

Ron was a loving and devoted father, husband, and friend. He was known to always have a smile on his face and share an Ole and Lena joke to anyone who would listen. Ron enjoyed his time on the golf course and driving in his beloved Mustang. Ron also enjoyed spending time with his family and enjoyed helping out with any projects that he could. He was an avid supporter of his grandchildren and always looked forward to seeing his grandchildren.

He is survived by special friend, Linda Beach; sons Dan (Jamie) of Lake City, and Michael (Onna) of Rochester; daughter Alicia (Brent) of Blue Earth; brother Ross (Kathy) of Le Sueur; granddaughters, Brittney (Marcus) and Avrie Nesbit; grandsons Zac and Nate Murphy; brothers-in-law Matt (Sharon) Wirth of Winnebago and Brett (Lisa) Wirth of Frost.

He was preceded in death by his wife, Gaye Nesbit, his father, Richard Nesbit, his mother Mildred Nesbit, and father-in-law Alan Wirth.

Consistent with Ron’s giving nature, he donated his body to the University of Minnesota for research.
