Obituary of Ronald J. Pelchat
April 20, 1944 – October 20, 2020
Ronald J. Pelchat. Age 76 of Redford.
Beloved husband of Rose Marie for 40 years.
Ron was preceded in death by parents Roger Pelchat and Ethel Zacharias, brothers Roger Pelchat II and Dale Pelchat. Survived by sister Ann Elliott. Ron is also survived by many loving nieces, nephews, friends and family members.
Cremation will take place at The On-Site Crematory located within the Molnar Funeral Homes - Brownstown Chapel.
In Ron’s younger days, he and his good friend Jim Harlow shared many memorable times at the Detroit Dragway.
Ron’s fondness for bowling enabled him to meet Rose Marie. They were set up by family members on a blind date for moonlight doubles and were married 1 ½ years later.
Ron also enjoyed playing Euchre and watching game shows. He loved his Detroit Tigers and watched them faithfully, win or lose! His carpentry skills were evident in many things, including gifts he would make for others, such as squirrel feeders and M&M candy dispensers.
Ten years ago, a 1 pound 7 ounce kitten hitched a ride under Ron’s spare tire before driving home from work in his truck. C.J. (short for Chevy Jumper) became an entertaining and much loved member of their family.
Ron will be truly missed. May God grant peace and comfort to all who loved him.
