Robert LeRoy Ough was born March 21, 1926 to Percy and Florence (Bishop) Ough in Alexander, North Dakota. He was raised on the family farm and educated in Alexander, graduating in 1943 from
Alexander High School.

On August 18, 1944, Bob was drafted into the Army of the United States at Fort Snelling, Minnesota. He fought in the Rhineland and Central Europe campaigns. He was honorably discharged from the service on June 22, 1946 at Camp McCoy, Wisconsin. He then attended and graduated from the Minnesota School of Business in Minneapolis.

On June 19, 1949, Bob was united in marriage to Lois Holm at Viborg, South Dakota. Four children were born to this union. Bob and Lois settled in Williston where he worked at the Co-op Creamery as
a bookkeeper for two years. When oil was discovered in North Dakota in 1951, he went to work for
Amerada Hess as a field clerk. He worked for Amerada Hess for 34 years, the last twelve as an
Administrative Services Manager. During this time, he was transferred to Charlson, Watford City, Tioga and back to Williston. He retired in 1986.

Bob was a member of Faith United Methodist Church, where he served as church treasurer for many
years. He also served as the treasurer for the Old Armory in Williston. Bob enjoyed playing cards,
reading, hunting, fishing and gardening. He also enjoyed traveling. Bob was known by family, friends
and co-workers as a kind, patient, conscientious person with a strong work ethic and wonderful sense of humor.

In the fall of 2014, Bob and Lois relocated to Woodbury, Minnesota to be near family. He returned home to the Lord on Sunday morning, July 28.

Bob is survived by his wife of seventy years, Lois of Woodbury, MN; children, Bruce (Charlene) Ough,

Lois & family,
Our deepest sympathy to all of you. I worked with Bob for many years at AHC. He was an intelligent, soft spoken and patient man. I always enjoyed the monthly Hess "retiree" coffee get-to-gethers where we would catch up on all the latest news. You were Blessed to have had 70 years together. Treasure your memories.

Bruce and Char, you are in our thoughts. Even when someone close is old and makes the transition from this life to the next, it is painful. My grandmother was 98.5 and when she died we mourned. We had hope and belief, but still mourned.
