Ronald R. Marcoux, age 61, suddenly and unexpectedly died of a heart attack on October 25, 2020 in his home in Central Lake Michigan. He was a jack of all trades, able to do anything he set his mind to. He was particularly focused on his faith, which included teaching Bible studies and discussing theology with anyone. He enjoyed using his skills in sound, lighting, and music to serve his God and help others.

He is preceded in death by his father, Richard Marcoux and his father-in-law, Martin Rubingh.
