FREDERICK LaMont Obituary

      "On the evening of Thursday, August 3, 2023, Frederick James LaMont of LeRoy Township passed away peacefully at his home surrounded by his loving family. He was 96 years of age. Born April 17, 1927 in Springfield Twp., he was the son of Joel and Helen LaMont.

 

      During the closing days of WWII Fred served with the U.S. Army driving supply trucks, and on many occasions top level VIPs, throughout Germany and the Swiss Alps. When he returned to civilian life, he was employed as a truck driver, often doubling as a mechanic. Eventually, Fred bought his own rig which he operated until he was 85.

 

      On February 4, 1951 he married Betty Jean Livermore. Together they raised 3 sons and shared 72 years. Fred enjoyed the simple things in life; visiting with family, snowmobiling, motorcycling, watching the birds, mowing the lawn, and supervising in the garage whenever anyone was out there working.

 

      He is survived by his wife, Betty, at home, sons James Scott (Georgia) LaMont, Wayne Allen (Terry) LaMont, and William "Bud" Wilcox, all of LeRoy, 9 grandchildren, 24 great-grandchildren, 3 great-great grandchildren, many nieces and nephews.

 

      In keeping with the family's wishes there will be a visitation for family members from 9 to 10 a.m. Wednesday August 9 at Morse and Kleese Funeral Home, 94 N. Center St. Canton. Interment in East Canton Cemetery.
