Roxy K. Falde
April 15, 1928 ‒ March 06, 2007
LEXINGTON: Roxy K. Falde, 78, of Eckert Road, and formerly of West Hanley Road, died Tuesday morning March 6, 2007 in MedCentral Mansfield Hospital following a short illness.
He was born April 15, 1928 in Canton, South Dakota to Clarence and Bertha (Tosseland) Falde, was graduated from Canton High School, and earned his Bachelor’s degree in social work from Augustana College in Sioux Falls, SD.
A U.S. Army veteran, Roxy was a member of the Disabled American Veterans, and Robert L. Castor Post #5101 V.F.W.
A Mansfield area resident 50 years, Roxy retired in 1999 as manager of the Lazy Boy Showcase Shop in Mansfield, with 20 years of service.
He had previously served as a Lutheran Church Youth Social Worker at Camp Mowana, and later owned and operated Pine Point Lodge, his own fishing lodge at Flin Flon, Manitoba, Canada, and served as ski area manager at Snow Trails.
Roxy was a member of Christ Lutheran Church, and had served the congregation on church council.
He was a member of Moose Lodge # 2511, and Lexington-Shelby Elks Lodge #2553.
A fishing fanatic, Roxy felt walleye were the only fish worthy of baiting a hook. And as painful as it was, he remained a die-hard Cleveland Browns fan.
A natural-born salesman ~ “don’t sell anything you don’t believe in…” he’d say, Roxy was personable and had the social skills that made him fun to be around. He’ll be remembered for his sense of humor and feisty nature, seasoned with competitiveness and stubbornness.
He is survived by sons and daughters-in-law Randy Falde of Los Angeles, CA, Garth and Julie Falde of Crestline and Cray and Susan Falde of Lexington; his daughter Niki Faldemolaei of Los Angeles, CA; grandchildren Eric, Kirtus, Tori, Brindi, Kelsey, Kylie, Lexus, Azad and Davis; a great granddaughter Aubrey; and his best friend Stan Lammon of Lexington.
He was preceded in death by his wife Georgia Lee Walter Falde on December 17, 1997; and by two brothers Gaylerd Falde and Verlon Falde.
The family will receive friends Friday, March 9, 2007 from 2-4 and 6-8 pm in the Lexington Avenue Snyder Funeral Home. A worship service, giving glory to God for the life of Roxy Falde, will be held Saturday at 1 pm in Christ Lutheran Church, 159 Frederick Street, Lexington. The Rev. Marilou Brook will officiate. Burial will follow in Lexington Cemetery.
