Ronald Clifford Lamoreaux, 70, died Wednesday, April 1, 2020, at his home in Belding, surrounded by family after a courageous battle with non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. A private, family-only burial service has taken place at Saint Patrick Catholic Church, Parnell.

Ronald was born on September 24, 1949 in Grand Rapids, he grew up in Comstock Park and the Belding areas. He was a lifelong farmer who loved the land and later in life used his skills as a machinist in the aerospace industry. He was guided by a strong sense of faith and his 49-year marriage to high-school sweetheart and love-of-his-life, Debra. He was a hero to his four children and was adored by his eight grandchildren, whose love of 4-H carries on his agricultural legacy.
