Ronald DeWayne Belcher, 40, passed away Tuesday, July 14, 2009. He was a Carpenter journeyman for many years and a member of Cathedral of Praise Ministries and Church International. He was a loving, caring person who loved life and family. Surviving are his beloved daughter, Asya Thomas, mother, Willie M. Belcher, siblings Dr. Tammy (Phillip) Gibson, Threasa (Renfred) Lightning, Gilbert Belcher, Jr., Rodney Belcher, Ryan (Daraina) Belcher all of Fort Wayne, Steven (Shaun) Belcher, Todd (Nicole) Belcher of GA. Kevin (Lorraine) Belcher of TX. Terrell (Vanshell) Belcher of N. Carolina, a deeply devoted niece Brandi Clark of Fort Wayne and a host of aunts, nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends. His father, Gilbert L. Belcher, Sr, and uncles, Howard, Amos, and Larry Belcher preceded him in death. Ronald was a man after God's own heart. He loved putting his heart and soul into serving God, and showed this in his faithfulness at Cathedral of Praise Ministries and Church International, where he worshiped. He was a much beloved son, brother, uncle, father, friend, and employee. He loved the Lord with all of his heart and soul. We know that we will see him again in heaven. Family was extremely important to Ronald. His brothers Rodney and Ryan, along with his nephew James, were instrumental in helping to care for Ronald during his final days. Brandi, his niece whom he lived with, loved him relentlessly through his last months on God's earth, with fervent sacrifice. She never complained while vigilantly keeping watch over and taking care of her Uncle Ronny's needs. He loved her cooking especially her chocolate cake! His great nephews Breon and Brysean Clark, and great niece Breonna Clark, daily showered him with unconditional love and hugs. His friend, Bobby Clark, made himself available to assist with physically moving Ronald and assisting him in anyway that was asked of him. He was a great help. His friend Brian weekly assisted with Ronald's bathing needs, and prayed with him and our family. We are grateful that Ronald had loving and caring friends, who came through in his hour of need. Ronald captured the hearts of everyone he encountered. He never met a stranger that he did not like. His special family, Felicia Belcher and Frederick "Sonny" and Kendra Dixie, and Louise Jones, added much joy to his life, over the last ten years. Jenei Mitchell, his very special friend, always brought a smile to his face, even on his "struggling" days. He would light up like a Christmas tree whenever she was around. She brought him much peace during his time of transition. Ronald was an extremely gifted person. Whatever needed fixing, he could fix it. If it needed to be built, he could build it. He could visualize the final product of a completely gutted room and make it look unbelievably breathtaking. He always had a smile on his face and a kind word for everyone he met. Fishing was his passion and he always made himself available to help others in need. He loved working with heavy earthmoving equipment. He loved God's green earth and found beauty in it everywhere he went, even in a junkyard! He loved to camp under the stars and cook over an open campfire. We miss his physical presence already but we know that Ronald still lives and one day, we shall all meet again. We know that to be absent from the body is to be present with Christ. When you think of him read this poem in loving memory of him I'M FREE Don't grieve for me, for now I'm free I'm following the path God has laid for me. I took His hand when I heard His call, I turned my back and left it all. I could not stay another day, To laugh, to love, to work or play, Tasks left undone must stay that way, I found the peace at the close of the day. If my parting has left a void, Then fill it with remembered joys- A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss, Oh yes, these things I too, will miss. Be not burdened with times of sorrow, I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow, My life's been full, I savored much, Good friends, good times, a loved one's touch. Perhaps my time seemed all to brief. Lift up your heart, and share with me, God wanted me now, He set me free. Service 11A.M., Monday at Cathedral of Praise Ministries and Church International, 115 E. Foster Parkway, calling 1hour prior, with Apostle Oscar Underwood officiating. Calling 2 to 5 & 7 to 9P.M. Sunday at D.O. McComb & Sons Lakeside Park Funeral Home, 1140 Lake Avenue. Committal service - Lindenwood Cemetery, Fort Wayne. Preferred memorials to Visiting Nurse Hospice Home OR Cancer Services of N.E. Indiana.
