    • Belongea, Richard J.

      Richard Belongea, age 70, passed away Wednesday, July 7, 2004 at Appleton Medical Center, surrounded by his wife and family.

      Dick was born July 7, 1934 in Kaukauna to the late Isaac & Ella Maldewin Belongea. He attended Kaukauna schools. In October of 1951, Dick entered the Air Force and served during the Korean Conflict receiving an honorable discharge in 1955. Dick served as Commander of the Legion Post 265, Darboy.

      On June 1, 1957 he married Mae Rose Jochmann at Holy Angels Parish in Darboy. Dick worked for various electrical companies in the valley retiring as a journeyman electrician from Van Ert Electric Co., Inc. in 1996. He was generous with his time and talent at many charitable fund-raisers. Dick was a member of IBEW 577.

      He also enjoyed hunting, fishing, bowling, golf and a good game of cards. Dick was a very “competitive” Sequence player. Of course, there was the snowmobiling in Chute Pond to occupy his winter weekends. In his later years, his interest turned to documenting his family genealogy. This led him to the L'Association des Families Belanger, Inc and he became a member of that association.

      Survivors include his wife Mae Rose and their children Jeffrey (Debra), Barbara (William) Belongea-Vandeyacht, Brian (Denise), Scott (Julie), and Lori (Thomas) Vander Heyden, ten grandchildren include Barb's sons Christopher, Matthew and Jonathon Vande Vyver, Lori's sons John and Luke Vander Heyden, Jeff's daughter Kimberly, Brian's daughter and son, Amanda and Travis, and Scott's daughters, Samantha, and Rebecca Belongea, two step granddaughters Ashleigh and Maria Vandeyacht.

      Survivors also include his four brothers and sisters-in-law: Myron (Elaine) Belongea, Green Bay; Edward (Marge) Belongea, Kimberly; Fr. David Belongea, OFM Cap., Appleton; George (Frances) Belongea, Raleigh, North Carolina; Dorothy Belongea, Toledo, Ohio; Doris Belongea, Greenville, Mississippi; his four sisters and brothers-in-laws Rita (Robert) Seering, Green Bay; Marion (Joseph) Rife, Kaukauna; Ruth (Kenneth) Vanderloop, Kaukauna; Sylvia Robinson, New Orleans, Louisiana; brother-in-laws and sister-in-laws Arlene Bishop, Sherwood; Lorraine(Dan) Endres, Appleton; Janet (Thomas) Harmon, Billings, Montana; David Jochmann, Canoga Park, CA; William (Herta) Linnell, Ft. Myers, FL; and numerous nieces and nephews.

      Funeral services will be held at 5:00 p.m. on Monday July 12, 2004 at Holy Angels Church, Darboy, with Fr, David Belongea OFM Cap officiating. Burial will be in Holy Angels Cemetery.
