Lawrence Joseph Delmont

Passed away on Wednesday, November 30th, 2022, at the age of 87. He was born on December 14th, 1934, in Perkins, Michigan, to the late Charles & Emma (LaChance) Delmont, and was a graduate of Marquette High School. Lawrence married Dolores Ann Abbott on October 27th, 1956. She preceded him in death on July 12th, 2014. Lawrence spent his working years as a mason, holding a builder’s license in the State of Michigan. He was a self-employed contractor his whole life who was well known for his residential fireplace masonry throughout the greater Saginaw area. After retiring, he worked as a custodian for Swan Valley Schools. Lawrence was also a devoted member of Holy Spirit Catholic Church and devoted Catholic. In his free time, Lawrence was an outdoorsman who enjoyed hunting camp with his brothers and family RV camping throughout Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. He also canned and preserved the veggies that grew in his garden. Most important to him was his family; he cherished the time he was able to spend with his children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren above all else. Lawrence is remembered as being an active man, even well into retirement. Every morning he filled a thermos with coffee and proudly exclaimed that he was going to work, even if work just meant putzing around the garage or tinkering in the barn. He was a one-of-a-kind example of how a person should be, and a kind man who never got angry but who would do anything for you.

Lawrence is survived by one son and two daughters; Ronald (Barbara Plude) Delmont, Diane (Donnie) Barnes, and Barbara (Daniel) Maldonado; grandchildren Heather (Justin), Jessica, Savannah (Jerry) Stuits, Cody, Lucas (Jazman) Jones, Nicolas (Aleah), and Jillann (Jake) Kissane; great grandchildren Avarey, Brooklin, Ryker, Oden, Amaralyn, Mia, and Zayden; Brother Wilfred (Ruth) Delmont, Jane (Arthur) Sodermark, Ray (Mary) Delmont, and Donald (Linda) Delmont; and many other loving family members and many friends.
