Ronald Jay was born on August 19, 1943, in Sheldon, the son of James and Johanna (IntVeld) Brink. He was raised in the Hospers, Melvin, and Sibley areas. He attended the Melvin Community and the Maurice – Orange City Community Schools. He also attended the Southern State Teachers College in Springfield, South Dakota.

On August 7, 1964, he married Beverly Faye Kuiken at the First Reformed Church in Sioux Center. They first made their home in Sioux Center until the early 1970’s, when they moved to rural Orange City. In 1988, they moved into Orange City, and in 1995, they moved to Spirit Lake. In 2000, they moved to Ringsted, and in 2003, they returned to Orange City.

For many years, Mr. Brink operated Ron’s Cabinet Shop, and in later years, he was a commissioned lay pastor at Armstrong, Ringsted, and Alton Presbyterian Churches. He had a passion for studying God’s Word, and he really enjoyed visiting and talking with people.

He was currently a member of the Newkirk Reformed Church and a former member of the Trinity Reformed Church in Orange City. At both churches, he served on the consistories and taught Sunday school classes.

“Ron” was a leader of the Tractor Enthusiasts and in addition to keeping the group informed, he and “Bev” enjoyed going on tractor rides in the summer. He was also president of the American Pencil Collector Society. He liked playing Sudoku and writing poetry.
