Life Story / Obituary


Ronald Gural, age 75, of Holland, passed away August 3rd, 2018, at his home with family.

Ron was born in Detroit to Ann Gural and the late Stanley Gural on September 24, 1942. He graduated from Cass Technical High School and attended Wayne State University for a Bachelor's and a Master’s degree in business.

In 1963, Ron met Patricia Kostelnik at a college mixer. They married two years later, raised four children and enjoyed over 52 wonderful years of marriage.

Ron was an avid woodworker and loved tinkering with just about any tool, vehicle or machine. He loved spending his free time on the golf course. Ron willingly used his skills lending a hand to anyone in need and he readily shared his knowledge.

Ron is survived by his loving wife, Pat Gural; his dear mother, Ann Gural of Novi, MI; his treasured siblings, Phillip Gural of The Villages, FL, Linda Sippola of Holly, MI; his four wonderful children, Kim (Scott) Bonzheim of Clarkston, MI, Kathy Gural of Beaverton, OR, Jeff (Kristen) Gural of West Olive, MI, Janet (Ben) LaBarge of West Olive, MI; seven adored grandchildren, Christian, Joshua, Brendan, Collin, Dugan, Daphne and Liam.

Visitation will be 10:30a.m. to 11:45a.m., Wednesday August 8, at Our Lady of the Lake Church, 480 152nd Ave., Holland. A funeral mass will be celebrated at noon with a luncheon to follow. Interment at Lakewood Cemetery.

Contributions may be made to the American Cancer Society, P.O. Box 22478 Oklahoma City, OK 73123.
