Leland "Sonny" Bostrom
- April 18, 2018

Leland "Sonny" Bostrom, 79, died April 17, 2018, while at the nursing home in Sturgis, SD. Leland battled many years of pain, caused from a severe stroke in 2002 that left him with permanent nerve damage. With the loving care and attention provided by his wife, Dorothy, he was able to spend the majority of those years at home, enjoying time with his family. Leland is now free of his pain.

Leland was born January 1, 1939, in Sidney, MT. He proudly served 3 years in the United States Marine Corp. After the Marines, he married Dorothy, and they moved to North Dakota. Leland enjoyed fishing, playing cards, bowling, and telling a good joke. He was a very hard worker and an excellent provider for his family. He farmed for quite a few years, but eventually found work in the oilfield, where he stayed until his stroke forced him into early retirement. Leland and Dorothy moved to Sturgis in 2013. It was a huge change for them, after 50 years in North Dakota, but turned out to be a blessing. Leland was able to obtain better healthcare within the region and had loving family members nearby. Leland was a kindhearted man that cared deeply for his family and friends.

He is survived by his wife of 53 years, Dorothy; his daughters, Laurie, Terry, and Susan (John); his grandchildren, Amanda, Laurel, and Austin; his siblings, Gail, Orlon (Bobbi), Keith (Paula), and Charlotte (Bruce); and several nieces and nephews.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Victor and Anna; sister, Sharon; step-son, Bob; and grandson, Adam.

A memorial service will be held at 11:00 a.m. Saturday, April 21, 2018, at Kinkade Funeral Chapel in Sturgis with Pastor Nick Haasch officiating.
