Bob Mostad, 68, of Langdon, passed away December 4, 2020, at Cavalier County Memorial Hospital in Langdon.
Robert M. Mostad was born February 10, 1952, in Grand Forks, to Merwyn “Bud” and Dolores “Dolly” (Hennager) Mostad. He grew up and attended school in Langdon, graduating in 1970. After living in California for a few years, he returned to Langdon to help his dad at Bud’s Welding and eventually bought his dad out. He and Hoppy Haugen purchased At the Hop and were in business together for many years until he bought Hoppy out and became the sole owner. He had many side businesses including snow removal, mowing Lebanon Cemetery, and tree trimming and removal. He also helped many people and organizations in the community that are too numerous to name; he had a hand in a lot of community projects. He was a member of the City of Langdon Lodging Tax Board, the MusicFest committee, and was a founding member of Cavalier County Search & Rescue. He was also a member of Lebanon Masonic Lodge #34; a Kem Temple Shriner, for which he started the Annual Langdon Shriners Fishing Trip; and Langdon Valley Scottish Rite. He really enjoyed spending time with his family and friends. He had a genuine love for his community and helping where it was needed. He enjoyed golfing and fishing for many years, but his slice of Heaven on Earth was his cabin and family out at Mt. Carmel Dam.
