Ronald ‘Jack’ Birchfield

Posted: Friday, December 2, 2011 10:35 am

Ronald “Jack” Birchfield died at Grandhaven Living Center in Lansing Wednesday, Nov. 30, 2011, at the age of 75, after a brief illness and a long struggle with Alzheimer’s disease.

Jack will be remembered as a strong-willed, hard-working man who loved God, his family, hunting and his “almost Heaven” West Virginia. He will also be remembered for his sense of humor, his banjo playing, his bluegrass music and his love of a good game of rummy, but even more so for his love of others and his willingness to help anyone who needed it: family, friend or stranger.

The Christmas tree traditionally placed at the Main Street Plaza in downtown Owosso will come from the site of a new township industrial park. Owosso Charter Township Industrial Park West has approximately 80 acres for development, and is located on the west side of Delaney Road. Seen here, from left, are Owosso Charter Township Supervisor Danny Miller, Owosso Main Street Director Josh Adams, and Justin Horvath and Brent Jones of the Shiawassee Economic Development Partnership. The tree had been slated for removal. The tree will be lit following the downtown light parade Friday night.
