Rodney Lloyd Bort, age 80 passed away peacefully at his farm home, Carrington, ND, on Friday, September 18, 2020.

Rodney was born on November 28, 1939, to Lloyd and Ruth (Willows) Bort at the Carrington Hospital.  He grew up and spent his entire life on the family farm.  He was so proud to be a 3rd generation farmer.  He was honored that he could spend time with his parents and grandparents, who also lived on the farm.  The farm was built by his grandparents.

Rodney is survived by his wife, Connie; his son, David and his grandchildren, Peyton, Lillian, Xavier and Xandria

He is preceded in death by his parents, Lloyd and Ruth and his parents-in-law, Fred and Alitta Aipperspach.
