Louis Stephan Gorsuch


Louis Stephan Gorsuch, age 61, passed away unexpectedly Friday morning, January 9, 2015 at Ionia Memorial Hospital, Ionia, MI. Lou was born  the son of Duane and Shirley (Morrison) Gorsuch.


Lou suffered from many health issues which kept him from participating life to its fullest, but when he was feeling up to it enough he enjoyed tinkering with anything electrical, tearing it apart and putting it back together. He also enjoyed puttering around in his yard, but most of all he enjoyed spending time with his family.


Lou is survived by his children: Louis Jr. and Alexander Gorsuch; his mother, Shirley Gorsuch; brothers and sisters, Lyn (Shelly) Gorsuch, Diana Bennett, Randy (Tammy) Gorsuch, Sandy (Dale) Bretz, Debbie (Gary) Beausoleil and Tracy (Ron) Lewis; sister in-law, Kelly Kellie; good friend, Hank Gay and numerous nieces and nephews.


Lou was preceded in death by his father, Duane; 2 brothers, Larry and Jimmy Gorsuch.


A Celebration of Life Service will take place on Saturday, January 17, 2015 at 2:00 p.m. at the Brigham Funeral Chapel, 6055 Howard City-Edmore Road, Vestaburg, MI.


A Visitation will also take place Saturday from 12:00 p.m. until the time of service.

    Just as God knows the name of each star(Psalms 147:4) he knows what we are going through and comforts us during difficult times such as these.(James 4:8) He will soon “swallow death forever”(Isaiah
    25:8) and “those in memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out.” (John 5:28,29) Jehovah God promises to resurrect or bring our loved ones back to life here on earth. God is all powerful and
    “cannot lie”(Titus 1:2) He will do all that he promises and we will be able to enjoy all his blessings. You may learn more at, may knowing more about his loving kindness help you during this
    difficult time. Shellye and Darren Andrus.
