Letters to the Editor

By Staff | May 29, 2015

My name is Ron Massine and I was born in Rugby N.D in 1956. My Father was Joseph Peter Massine and he died in 1972 in Billings Montana where we moved to in 1961.

I am looking for anyone who might have grown up with him in Balta N.D. while he was on the farm. I think he went to school in Rugby and played basketball until he had to leave school in the 10th grade to help his family with income.

It is my understanding that they lost the farm and moved to Rugby and so I was really hoping there might still be someone of his school mates that might still be alive and that they could possibly get in touch with me ? They would be around 90 years old.. My Uncle Fred Massine died awhile back and was his only brother . His parents both are deceased of course.

I have talked to relatives who knew him as an adult, but I really would like to talk to any friends or classmates he had, and learn some things about him as a boy.

If there is anyone in the Balta and Rugby that could possibly provide me a link to my Fathers childhood would be greatly appreciated.

Ron Massine,

Lovell, Wyo.
