Military Honors will be accorded by the Neathery-Simensen Post #756, Devils Lake Veterans of Foreign Wars and the North Dakota Military Funeral Honors Team.

    Robert was born and raised in Starkweather, ND, the only child of Peter J. and Evelyn C. (Olson) Reando. He joined the Navy Hospital Corps upon graduation from high school. He served in several Pacific theatres as well as Stateside over the next 20 years before retiring to the Fleet Reserves. A second career in the Southern California building industry followed, finally retiring in the mid-1980’s.
    Robert was blessed with family. In 1949, he married Flora B. Barkley in Bremerton, WA. After Flora’s death, Robert met and married C. Diane Loehr Dreyer of Devils Lake in 1969. The two raised their children in Anaheim. After Robert’s final retirement, the couple divided their time between Anaheim and Starkweather.
    Robert is survived by his wife Diane; their four children, Peter J. (Melinda) Reando, Jon R. (Kim) Dreyer, C. Scott (Jeanette) Dreyer and Mary M. Reando; five grandchildren; and one great granddaughter.
