Funeral arrangements are with the Shelley Funeral Chapel in Little Falls, MN. Jude Ronyak was born as the surprise second of a pair of twins in July of 1971 in Minneapolis, MN. He attended school at Totino-Grace and Fridley HS and then went to college but soon learned that the Lord and photography was his calling. He was an amazing photographer who could sooth any infant, entertain any toddler, and even make a stubborn teenager smile. He was the loving father of four children: Mikayla, Samuel, Emma, and Jack. Jude was a true servant of the Lord who sought to prove how Catholic the Bible truly is. He loved to share his faith and scripture with anyone and everyone. This infectious spirit made any encounter with him simply unforgettable. Jude loved to listen to Christmas music and would always start on October 1st but this year he allowed himself an extra month. After originally only given a six-month window, Jude amazed the doctors, specialists, and his care givers with his wisdom, joy and hope. He truly was an inspiration to others who were suffering and counseled many of them. His journey ended a bit surprisingly as not even cancer could claim him as his heart simply leapt into the arms of his savior. He loved his family and his brothers and sisters in Christ dearly. To him they were not just friends; they were his extended family. Jude was the epitome of a soldier for Christ praying constantly and staying faithful even until the end. He was preceded in death by his mother, Jeannie, grandparents, and cousin Eugene. He is survived by his father Bernard of Holdingford, four children, sister Kris (Daren) Haugan of Andover, brother, Joe (Roni) Ronyak of Isanti, and twin brother, John (Jody) Ronyak of Sartell; Godchildren Hannah Ross, Luke Magnoski, Mary Moudry, Isaiah Florin; nieces and nephews, aunts and uncles. Jude’s family would like to thank Dr. Laudi, Dr. Miller, Heartland Hospice, Father Albert Holmes, and the countless number of people who visited and prayed for their wonderful care and support throughout the past four years.
