December 22, 1984 ~ January 24, 2021 (age 36)


Ward Clifton Jorgensen, 36, of Duluth, MN passed away at his home on January 24th, 2021.

Ward was born December 22nd, 1984 in Waseca, MN. He grew up in Brainerd, MN and graduated from Brainerd High School in 2003. He attended and graduated from the University of Minnesota-Duluth in 2008 with a degree in Business Administration and Management.

Ward was happiest with his family, especially with his Dad in the woods, on the water, or playing cribbage together. He was a kind, gentle boy who loved his family—who will love and miss him dearly forever.

Ward is survived and will forever be missed by his parents, Walter and Gail Jorgensen of Crosby; sister, Alison Schroeder and niece, Ihlee Schroeder of St. Joseph; grandmother, Shirley Zimpel of McGrath; godparents, Paul and Rita Gelhar of McGregor; his beloved dog, Kimber and countless aunts, uncles, and cousins from both the Jorgensen and Zimpel families.

He was preceded in death by his grandparents, Donald and Gizella Jorgensen and grandpa, Robert Zimpel.

A private interment will be held at Pliny Cemetery in McGrath at a later date.  In lieu of memorials, Ward's family asks that you go out of your way to take care of people every single day. Show up and share your love endlessly. And never stop showing up.
