Raynard Iceman

Raynard B. Iceman, age 60, passed away on Monday, January 22, 2024, in the comfort of his own home surrounded by his loving family by his side.

Raynard was born on November 11, 1963, to Cora (Sherman) and Donald Iceman Sr. He attended the Little Flower School, St. Michael, and then the Indian school in Wahpeton, ND. From there he went on to Flandreau Indian School in 1976.  He met Freida Fineday and was blessed with six children, Raylene, Jarene, Alison, Stephanie, Sherene, and Delbert Fineday. Raynard and Freida lived in Minnesota for a short period and returned home to Fort Totten to be closer to family. He then went to Cankdeska Cikana Community College and received his GED. Raynard always wanted to be a carpenter and excelled in this as he made the Dean’s List for the program. He worked for Sioux Manufacturing Corporation, Dakota Tribal Industries, and the Spirit Lake Casino. His latest job was working for the Spirit Lake Elderly Service program delivering meals and answering phones.

Raynard loved spending time with his family. He looked forward to any gatherings that they had to get together with one another. He enjoyed waking up early and having coffee with Delmer and going to rummage sales and bingo with his mom, Cora.  He also enjoyed playing sports, especially basketball, and riding horses and rodeos.
