Roy A. Musselman

Posted in Lanesboro Obituaries



Roy Musselman, age 69, passed away on Friday, January 16, 2015 at his home in Missoula Mont. He was born on July 29, 1945.

As a young boy, Roy lived with his family in Glenwood Minn., until the family moved to Lanesboro in 1962. He graduated from Lanesboro High School in 1963. Roy joined the military and afterwards attended the Aberdeen Business School. He married in 1972 (Ella, later divorced), and had two sons: Scotty and Royce.

In the early 1980’s, Roy struck out on his own and lost touch with the family for many years. It wasn’t until 2010 when Roy reached out to family via social media. When asked what he had been doing for the last 20 years he replied, “Not a lot.” In the spring of 2011 he returned to Lanesboro for a family reunion before returning to Missoula. Roy had many different jobs over the years and had seen most of the United States. He worked for many years as a carnival ride operator, and later in apartment maintenance. Roy was an avid outdoorsman, and enjoyed hunting and fly fishing. He tied his own flies and would share stories of his fishing adventures and “the big ones that got away.” He was a staunch Republican who often shared his political views, and loved to debate the many issues facing our nation.

He is survived by his son, Royce Musselman of Worthington, Minn.; two sisters: Cher Musselman of Hemet, Calif. and Judy (Bob) Schumack of Eden Prairie, Minn.; two brothers: Gary (Mavis) Musselman of Lanesboro, Minn. and Kurt (Amanda) Musselman of Portage, Wisc.; six nephews and two nieces. Preceding him in death are his parents, Charles and Ann; one son, Scotty; one brother, Charles (“Chuck”); and one nephew, Kyle.

Per Roy’s wishes, a formal funeral will not be performed. A private family ceremony will be held at a later date.
