Obituary for Richard William LaBarge

Richard William LaBarge, age 71, of Lapeer, formerly of Waterford, died Saturday, March 31, 2018. He was born August 31, 1946 in Pontiac, to Hubert and Isabel “Daisy” (Mason) LaBarge.

Richard graduated from Waterford Township High School and married Sonja Ayers, the love of his life, on July 2, 1966 at the Alliance Church in Waterford. Richard was a mechanic and the service manager at the Goodyear Tire Store in Lapeer. Richard was a member of the Lapeer Fraternal Order of Eagles #2427, where he had many dear friends. He especially enjoyed camping, golfing, grilling (maybe a little overdone), karaoke and boating. Richard truly loved time spent with his grandchildren and anything Elvis Presley!

Richard is survived by his loving wife: Sonja LaBarge of Lapeer; children: Dawn (Gary), Scott and Shelly (Ron); grandchildren: Demera (Ray), Chloe, Peyton (Brady), Isabella and Jessica; great-grandchildren: Ethan, Ashton and Chandler; “brother and sisters”: Teri (Mark), Shirley (Randy), Betty (Mickey) and John; many nieces and nephews; lifelong friend: Danny; other dear family: Tim and Mark; and last “but certainly not least” the family pets: Daisy Mae and Mudd 2. He was preceded in death by his parents: Hubert and Daisy LaBarge; and brother: Kenneth “Butch” LaBarge.
