Robert Louis McConnell

May 29, 1946 — February 15, 2023

Robert Louis McConnell, age 76, of Stanton, went to be with his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, on Wednesday, February 15, 2023, passing away at his home under the loving care of his family and Spectrum Hospice.

Robert was a man who put others before himself and was always willing to serve. He did this for 37 and a half years, first as a US Marine and then as a member of the National Guard. He also worked as a Correctional Officer spending the majority of his career at the Riverside Correctional Facility in Ionia. Robert also faithfully served as a member of Trinity Church in Stanton, where for many years he volunteered and helped to run the Food Pantry and also worked at the Baby Pantry. He was an avid runner, enjoyed working on his hobby farm, and going fishing and hunting. However, the thing Robert enjoyed the most was family, especially his grandkids and he loved going to all their events to cheer them on and support them.

Surviving Robert is his wife of 53 years, Linda; their children, Belinda (Mark) Atchison, Robert II (Tori) McConnell, Luke (Rosemary) McConnell, Shirley (Frank) Lund; grandchildren, Logan Atchison, Daniel Atchison, Kiara Atchison, Alaylah Atchison, Dreea Atchison, Isaiah Atchison, Jeremiah Atchison, Alexis (Joey) Deboer, Bailley McConnell, Cammie McConnell, Desireé McConnell, Aidan McConnell, Luke McConnell, Leah McConnell, Isaac Morden, Mariah Lund, Jeremiah Lund, Jayden Lund; and brother, Randall (Kathy) McConnell.

Robert was preceded in death by his parents, Robert & Imogene (Johnson) McConnell; grandson, Evan McConnell; and uncles, Richard Johnson and Harry Johnson.

Roberts' life is being celebrated on Saturday, February 18th at Trinity Church in Stanton (415 N. Mill St.). Visitation will be from 10 AM to 11 AM with his funeral ceremony starting at 11 AM.

Final interment will be at McBride Cemetery. In lieu of flowers the family suggests you direct memorial donations to Trinity Church.
