November 19, 1947 - February 27, 2021
Keith R. Mastrud, 73, of Fargo, passed away on Saturday, February 27, 2021, in his Fargo home. Keith Ray Mastrud was born November 19, 1947, in Hatton, ND, to Conrad and Estella (Pladson) Mastrud. The family moved to Fargo from Hatton, ND, when he was a child. Keith graduated from Fargo North High in 1966. After high school, he enlisted in the US Army, serving inside the US helping patrol the riots and unrest during that time. In 1970, he was married to Kathleen (Kathy) Marie Beckerleg in Fargo, ND. They had three boys together. Keith spent his career working for Simplex, Fargo. He started as an electrician and continued to advance to District Manager when he retired in 2005. In 2004, he was blessed to marry Dorothy (Volk) Suckert, of Minot, ND. They both found each other after losing their first spouses to cancer. Keith enjoyed his 1949 Chevy pickup; he rebuilt and restored this car over the last 30 years. Every summer, he would take and show off his truck at the “Back to the Fifties” in Minneapolis and local car shows. He had a love for art, channeling that through his custom, gorgeous, stained glass works that could be seen in all his homes. His hobbies included that of fishing trout on Bad Medicine Lake, Western movies, old military airplanes, and various antique collections. He was fortunate to spend his winters in Arizona, and the first sign of snow he would pack up and leave ND behind. Halloween was a favorite holiday, when all the grandkids would come over and show their Papa their outfits. He volunteered with various groups in retirement, from Meals on Wheels in Arizona and Hospice in North Dakota. He will be missed dearly by family and friends. Left to cherish his memory are his three sons: Matt (Jennifer) Mastrud; Anthony (Nichole); Nathan (Jenifer) and his grandchildren; Levi, Morgan, Hayden, Ivy, Emerson, and Avery all of Fargo, ND. His caring wife, Dorothy, Fargo, ND and her two sons; Mike (Tayna) Suckert, of Detroit Lakes, MN and Dan (Lisa) Suckert of Fargo, ND and their children; Luci, Belle, Tommy, and Libby. Sisters, Mary Korsmo, Mesa, AZ and Naomi Lundeen, Fargo, ND, along with many nieces and nephews. Keith was preceded in death by his parents, brothers, David, Neil, Ennis, and Leslie (Pinky); and beloved wife Kathy. A family only memorial service will be held on Monday, March 1st 2021. Memories and condolences may be shared at www.hansonrunsvold.com and Hospice of the Red River Valley. Arrangements by Hanson-Runsvold Funeral Home - Fargo, ND.
