Owen R. Birchman

Owen R. Birchman Lansing "All religion is of life, and the life of religion is to do what is good." Owen R. Birchman (88, of Lansing, MI) tried to live each day by this belief and those taught in the Lord's Holy Word. He served his country during WWII and Korea, and in a career in public health, inspecting restaurants and facilities for the elderly. On November 27, 2012, he moved on to be with his loved wife, Lynn, and family and friends who have gone before. He will be missed by his surviving children: Marcia (Bill) Clifford, Gail Grace, Wayne Birchman, Lyle (Brenda) Birchman, and Ross (Lisa) Birchman, and his thirteen grandchildren and 6 great-grandchildren. A private service will be held. In lieu of flowers, please hug those you love.
