Obituary for Harold Lester Rugenstein

Harold Lester Rugenstein, 82, of Attica (a lifetime area resident), died Tuesday, May 22, 2018.

Harold was born January 12, 1936 in Metamora Township to William and Ida (Reuse) Rugenstein. He married Dorothy Boice on April 17, 1954 in Lapeer. As a young man Harold farmed for a living but eventually went on to work for the Lapeer County Road Commission. Harold worked 27 years for the road commission – most of that time was spent as a grader operator but eventually he retired as a foreman. Harold was a member of the Attica Fire Department for 35 years – 24 of those years he was the Chief. Harold was very mechanical and his only “hobby” was tinkering on/fixing things in the garage. Harold was a farmer at heart and despite not having farmed for decades he most identified himself with farming – once a farmer always a farmer.

Harold is survived by his three sons: David (Deborah) Rugenstein of Columbiaville, Donald (Pamela) Rugenstein of Columbia, PA and Jim (Sharon) Rugenstein of Columbiaville; five grandchildren: Scott (Michelle) Rugenstein, Erin (Matt) Viers, Darron, Connor & Dillon Rugenstein; great-grandchildren: Lola, Spencer, Olivia, Klara and Corbin. Harold was preceded in death by his wife, Dorothy in 2016; siblings: Richard Reuse, Ward Rugenstein and Marion Blankenburg; nephew, Vern Blankenburg; and his parents.

Visitation will be from 4-9PM Thursday, May 24, 2018 at Muir Brothers Funeral Home, Lapeer. Harold’s funeral service will be at 11:00AM Friday, May 25, 2018 at Muir Brothers. Burial will immediately follow at the Attica Township Cemetery.
