Ronald Marvin Rousch, departed us peacefully on April 28, 2017. He was born April 24, 1937, in Union city Michigan to the late Clarence and Calista (Stratton) Rousch. After graduating of Comstock high school in 1954, he enlisted in the U.S. Navy and served his country with honor. After being discharged he worked various places while teaching himself to be a Civil Engineer. He worked most of his career at Delta engineering and Gove associates until he retired. Ron also made time to teach at Chicago technical college. On September 14, 1993, he was united in marriage to Mary (Allen) Rousch who survives. Also surviving are his children Edward (Rhonda) Rousch, Terry (Paula) Rousch, Mark Wilson, Christopher (Bobbi) Rousch, his former wife, Sharon Rousch who became a close friend to him over the years. He has several grandchildren, great-grandchildren, and great-great grandchildren. He was also proceeded in death by three daughters, Peggy, Pamela and Bonnie; stepmother, Helen; sister, Billie and brothers, George and Bryon. Ron was always known to be a joker. He loved a good joke or story and would often call his children and other friends and family just to share one with them. A few years back he joined Facebook which allowed him to connect with old friends and make some new ones along the way. His other passion was his garden, he looked forward to it every year. Above everything else he was a thinker, constantly thinking about the future and the past. Ron made friends wherever he went and those who knew him can tell you a joke that he told them because he left that type of impression on everyone. He will be greatly missed and he was loved by all.
