MMCDC Note: Roy Jorgenson helped found MMCDC during his service as Director of Inter-County Community Council of Oklee, Minn., from 1966-1984. Prior to that, he served his country in World War II. He passed away this spring just short of his 100th birthday. His life is honored in this video, produced as a joint project of the Minnesota Department of Veterans Affairs and Twin Cities PBS in recognition of a very different type of Memorial Day in 2020. He also is remembered in a story on the state website

Roy’s son-in-law, Ron Lindberg, later served as MMCDC’s Board Chairman. We extend our gratitude and our condolences to Roy’s family.
