Gary Lee Rasmussen


Gary Lee Rasmussen, known to most as Tiny, age 75, of Lakeview, quietly left the earth to the next step on his journey while watching his beloved Detroit Tigers on Friday, July 18, 2014. Born on March 24, 1939, Tiny graduated from Lakeview High School in 1957, and married Vonda Thompson on October 7, 1966.


Tiny never met a stranger, he was loved and cherished by his family and always appreciated the moment he was in. Whether it was watching the Tigers game, “supervising” those weeding his garden, cutting meat for 47 years at Leppinks Food Center, (more specifically being the Babe Ruth of euchre in the break room), or debating any hot sports topic. Tiny lived life to the fullest each and every day.


Tiny was preceded in death by his father and mother, Alger and Marguerite Rasmussen; step mother, Agatha Rasmussen, and his cousin, Ronnie Selesky.


Tiny will live on through his beautiful wife, Vonda Rasmussen; his son, Tim Rasmussen; daughter in-law, Jenny Rasmussen; grandsons, Jourdan and Garrison Rasmussen, and forever appreciated by lots of cousins, nieces, nephews, in-laws, neighbors, co-workers, and any customer who ever wandered into the meat room and found themselves talking to him for the next twenty minutes.


A visitation will be held on Tuesday, July 22, 2014 at 10 a.m., with a memorial service following at 11 a.m. with Pastor Eugene Kooi of Entrican officiating, following with a luncheon, all held at Brigham Funeral Chapel, 9977 Howard City Edmore Road, Lakeview.


In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made to the American Diabetes Association.


Condolences may be expressed to the family utilizing the guestbook below.
