Longtime Montcalm Area Reading Council member Loren Strotheide passed away on February 8, 2020. Over the years, Loren became a special part of MARC. He joined the organization in 1993 as a student, and later served on the Board of Directors. Loren was named the MARC Outstanding Contributor of the Year in 2000 and again in 2002 as part of the Board of Directors. He retired from the board in 2018.
Loren is remembered for his dedication to MARC. He once donated his entire paycheck to the organization, a kind gesture that sustained MARC during difficult times. Whatever the task, Loren was willing to help. He was an invaluable board member, and MARC is thankful for his many years of service.
Our condolences go out to Loren’s family. A memorial service will be held in the spring. For more information, please click here.
A graveside memorial service for Loren will be held at Rest Haven Memory Gardens on June 27 at 2:00 pm.
