Obituary for Wilfred L Grondin

Wilfred Louis Grondin, a long-time resident of Milford, passed away at the age of 98 in Ada, Michigan, on Friday, August 18, 2017. Born to Oscar and Louise Grondin in Buffalo, New York on April 4th, 1919, he and his family moved not long after to Milford, where he subsequently spent most of his life. He married the former Shirley Marie Tyler in 1940, and after his military service, they settled into the 500 block of General Motors Road, along with three of his siblings, in houses built by their father, who lived on the next block round the corner. [For decades, the small block on GM road was half filled with Grondins and their relatives, producing a dozen cousins and frequent get-togethers both formal and informal, especially with Donald and Alice and Virginia and Gale. The Tylers were more widely scattered in Milford and environs, but close contact with them was just as frequent, especially given that Shirley's mother Leah lived just across from the old stone Catholic church, and that Shirley was close to her own siblings. In their later years, Mr. and Mrs. Grondin moved to Ada on the west side of the state, to be near their son Maurice, who provided care for them and lightened their lives with his humor.

Of his original family, Wilfred is survived by his brother Donald, his other siblings (Oscar Jr., Thomas, and Virginia) having passed away. Mr. Grondin, who lost his beloved wife Shirley in 2013, is survived by their four sons - Michael (Letitia), Maurice, Timothy, and James, grandchildren Elizabeth (Anton), Danielle (Vince), Olivia, Brian (Kathy), Tish, and great grandchildren Isaac, Violet, and Brandon, as well as numerous other friends and relatives from whom he received thoughtful cards and to whom he much enjoyed talking in his later years.
