Obituary for Mogens Ove Rasmussen

Mogens Ove Rasmussen 93, of Milford MI died peacefully on October 9, 2017.

Dearest husband of Inger (65 years) and beloved Father of Ellen (Larry) Britton. He was a wonderful MorFar (Grandfather) to Erik and Emily Britton. A Native of Odense Denmark, Mogens was the youngest of Five children. He came to Montreal in 1951 with $50.00 in his pocket and not knowing the language. There he worked as a shoe repairman, a trade he learned in Denmark. The following year he sent for his beloved Inger to join him after he had determined that he could support both. Upon her arrival, they were married the next day, May 2, 1952. They lived in Montreal for one year before coming to Detroit for better job opportunities. At this point Mogens realized his ultimate dream of living in the United States. He learned to read & write English by reading his Readers Digest on the Trolley to and from work every day until he became proficient. Mogens then started his career in Tool & Die, in support of the automobile industry which he continued until he retired at age 74. He was an avid reader and loved to learn. He especially enjoyed reading about Astronomy, Science, Technology & Politics. He and Inger loved to spend time helping to take care of their grandchildren. They loved to go to the Zoo, Belle Isle and the various parks in the area. He was a quiet and sweet man (A gentle giant) with a fantastic sense of humor and much determination. He loved sweets and potato chips. He was also a spiritual man who saw the intricacies of the life forms all around us and the perfect nature of all the universes in space and declared this could not have happened by accident. There is a God. No question.

A Memorial Service will be held at Lynch & Sons Funeral Home, 404 East Liberty St. Milford, 48381 on October 14, 2017 at 1 PM with gathering beginning at 12 PM.
