Perry G. Rambur, 59, Bismarck, passed away Jan. 8, 2020, at his home. Memorial services will be held 1 p.m. Monday, Jan. 13, at Bismarck Funeral Home. There will be a social visit one hour before the service.
Perry is survived by his parents Mike and Dorene Rambur, wife Valerie (Jesz) Rambur, son Samuel (Amber) Rambur, granddaughters Sydney, Addison, and Melanie, siblings Michael (Kim) Rambur, Beverly (Mike) Arellano, Wade (Sheri) Rambur, and many nieces and nephews.
Perry was born on Oct. 24, 1960, at St. Alexis Hospital in Bismarck. He was raised in Bismarck and spent summers at the family farm near Carson. He lived a full life working hard and enjoying the simple treasures of life.
Perry graduated from St. Mary’s High School in 1979. He married Valerie in 1981, also the year they welcomed their son, Sam, into the world.
Perry was a dedicated employee of Western Steel and Plumbing for over 30 years. He was always willing to help anyone out with whatever might come up. He loved to keep busy, but he also took time to slow down and relax with friends and family. His all-day long chili and knoephla soup are proof of that!
He was a wonderful companion to drink coffee with and watch early morning cartoons. Perry was always there to make you smile, and he enjoyed watching old westerns and Andy Griffith. Going to “The Farm” was one of his favorite adventures along with camping, hunting, and fishing – not to mention the endless list of other projects that everyone wanted him to do, but that is where he shined the most. Although he was a quiet man, Perry could bring joy and silliness to any tough task.
You couldn’t ask for a better son, brother, husband, father, and grandfather. He will be missed and loved by everyone that knew him.

She was good at doing so many things: baking bread and kuchen; making chokecherry jam; sewing; knitting; rock, coin, and doll collecting; gardening; jigsaw puzzles; and being a caring, attentive mother to her children. We and others especially enjoyed her lovely piano playing. She also enjoyed collecting and selling antiques.
