Let the family know you care by sharing this tribute.

In loving memory of Richard William Biron, April 1, 1950 – March 8,2012, a son, a father, a brother, a grandfather and a great grandfather.

Richard, or more commonly known as Dick, was Vietnam veteran who served our country in the United States Marine Corp from February 2, 1969 to February 23, 1972. After arriving home from Vietnam, Richard could be found under the hood of car, enjoying a good concert, or cheering at the racetrack.

In life, Richard was a friend to many and accepted people, however flawed, into his circle wherever he went. People will remember his smile, his laugh, his guitar and good-natured character. In death, Richard was surrounded by family who stood vigil to ensure his comfortable passing and safe journey back to the Creator.

Richard is survived by his son, Todd Biron and daughter-in-law Holly, three grandchildren, KC, Brandon, and Brianna, and one great granddaughter Faith. He is also survived by Ken Biron of Sugar Island, Michigan, Nancy Charlier of Mendon, Michigan, Steve Biron of Gobles, Michigan, Gene Biron from Hessel, Michigan, Bernard Biron of Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan, and Joseph Biron of Athens, Michigan and numerous cousins, nieces, and nephews.

All who knew Richard will miss him immensely. In honor of Richard, let us take a lesson from him and his belief in the words of the Serenity Prayer by Reinhold Niebuhr written in 1934 to “accept the things we cannot change, the courage to change the things we can, and the wisdom to know the difference.”

Services will be held at Fort Custer National Cemetery on Tuesday, March 20, 2012 at 11:00 a.m. Luncheon to follow service at Crossroads Missionary Church, 22605 M-60, Mendon, Michigan 49072 at 2:00 p.m..

Arrangements were entrusted to the Michigan Cremation Company, Grand Rapids, honored provider of Veterans Funeral Care.
