Laudie Kostelecky passed away Monday, April 13, 2020 at Hilltop Home of Comfort in Killdeer.

Laudie Albert was born on July 28, 1926 in rural Dunn County, the son of Steve and Agnes (Urbanec) Kostelecky. As a young boy, he grew up on a farm north of Dickinson. He attended New Hradec School through the eighth grade. At the age of 18, Laudie became a soldier in the US Army and was later discharged to return home to help out on the family farm. On October 15, 1947, Laudie married Edith Kralicek and they lived on the family farm for a short time before moving into Dickinson. Their marriage was blessed with son, Harlan and daughter, Jamie. Laudie worked as a mail carrier for over thirty years. Following his retirement, he drove vans transporting railroad crews to and from the depo. In 2016, Laudie became a resident at Benedict Court, later moving into St. Benedict’s Health Center in 2018. His final home since 2019 was Hill Top Home of Comfort in Killdeer. Laudie enjoyed gardening, spending time at the lake, fishing, grilling and sitting on his back deck outside. He especially loved spending time with his grandkids and great-grandkids, never missing any of their sporting events. Laudie was a member of the Eagles, Knights of Columbus and St. Patrick’s Catholic Church.

Laudie is survived by his daughter, Jamie (Greg) Armitage of Killdeer; daughter-in-law, Kristy (Neil) Cross of WY; four grandchildren, Christopher (Tera) Kostelecky of NE, Jennifer (Brandon) Grover of MN, Holly (Brad) Schmidt of Manning, Josh (Markie) Armitage of Dickinson; five great-grandchildren and one on the way; brother, Don Kostelecky of MT; sister-in-law, Josie Kralicek of Dickinson.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Steve and Agnes; wife, Edith (2005); son, Harlan; grandson Sean; sister, Lillian; many brother and sister in-laws.

Uncle Laudie and Aunt Edith were the best. I remember our family going to their house for dinner. Over the years Laudie was always great to talk to. A good sense of humor and a good man. Will miss him. Roxanne, Mariah and Delanie and I are sorry for your loss!
