Obituary for Richard Lee Belka

Richard (Rich) Lee Belka, aged 67, of Belding (Grand Rapids) passed away on Monday, October 21, 2019 surrounded by loved ones.His passions included anything outdoors (especially fishing), spending time with friends and family, being a father to his three daughters, and a grandfather to his grandchildren. Those that were fortunate enough to know him will remember his hospitality, generosity, thick skin and soft heart. They will miss his jokes, his laughter, his unending support, and the look in his eyes when he became overwhelmed with love for his family. Rich will be missed by so many, most especially his wife Linda (Lyn), his children Shelley (and Chris) Key, Amy (and Benjamin) Rumsey, Julie (and Andy) Ronan; as well as his six grandchildren. He will never be forgotten, and they will carry him in their hearts forever. There will be a memorial or Celebration of Life for Rich in the Spring. Date to be announced. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to Pere Marquette Trout Unlimited.
