Kermeen, Harold E.
Spring Lake, formerly of Middleville
Harold Edward Kermeen, age 97, was called to his eternal home on Tuesday, August 27, 2019 surrounded by his loving family. Harold was born on February 9, 1922 in Middleville, the son of Claude and Katherine (Finn) Kermeen. Harold proudly served our country in World War II as a Master Sergeant in the Army. After fulfilling his service in the Army he started in the tool and die industry, and because he was such a hard worker he didn’t retire until he was eighty years old. He was an expert craftsman and woodworker, if you needed something he could make it. He was beloved by everyone who met him, especially his family. He was a devoted husband, father, grandfather, great grandfather, and uncle. He will be remembered for his kind heart, his smile, gentle laughter, and amazing stories. Harold is survived by his wife of nineteen years, Janet Kermeen; children, Kathy Kermeen, Sue (Randy) Kehr, Patty Heldt, Tom (Ann) Ensing, LaVonne Baumer; daughter-in-law, Cheri Kramer; many special nieces and nephews; 21 grandchildren, and 27 great grandchildren. He was preceded in death by his parents; wives, Hester Kermeen and Doris (Ensing) Kermeen; son, Rick Kramer; sister: Margaret (Joe) Corrigan; brother in law and sister and law: Bob (Jean) Soeters; great grandson, Landon Kehr. Harold’s family will receive friends on Saturday, August 31, 2019, 1:00 to 2:00 PM at the Middleville United Methodist Church where his funeral service will be conducted at 2:00 PM, Mr. Duane Thatcher officiating. A private burial will take place in Mt. Hope Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to North Ottawa Care Center (Heartwood Lodge) at NOCHS, 18525 Woodland Ridge Drive, Spring Lake, MI 49456.
