Rizk A. Bsharah, 86, passed away on Friday, August 25, 2017, with his family by his side. He was born to the union of Andrew Bsharah and Rengus Sickrey on September 29, 1930. He was preceded in death by his parents; wife, Marilyn; son, Thomas; grandson, Rizk C. "Ricky" Bsharah; and sister, Gladys Bsharah.

Rizk was better known as "Rick the Barber" throughout the Grand Rapids area for many years. He also served as the resident barber at the Clark Home and the Grand Rapids Home for Veterans. Nothing made him prouder than to boast of his family and he was always eager to hold each new baby in his loving arms. He proudly served in the United States Marine Corps, bravely fought in the Korean War and was awarded two Purple Heart medals. Being a Marine remained a source of pride throughout his life.

A graveside memorial service with military honors will take place on Friday, October 6, at 11:30 a.m. at Pine Hill Cemetery located at 1102 52nd St. SE, Kentwood, MI. A time to celebrate his life and share stories with his family will follow the service at the American Legion Post 208 at 133 44th St. SE, Grand Rapids, MI.

Rizk is survived by his children, Robin and Jim Miller, Andrew and Barb Bsharah, Rizk F. and Lori Bsharah, Jane and Stuart Forth, Mary and Eric Brown, Holly Littell and Paul Bsharah; grandchildren, Khristie Miller, Timothy Rogers, Erik and Craig Rose, AJ and Joel Bsharah, Nichole Carrasco and Dustin Bsharah, Stuart and Leslie Forth, Hunter and Alex Brown, Leland and Gabe Littell; ten great grandchildren; two great-great grandchildren; sister, Frances Joseph; nieces, Nancy Joseph Bunker and Georgette Joseph Ike; and very special longtime friend, Buzz Trudell.

Memorial donations in Rizk's name may be made to the Grand Rapids Home for Veterans. Envelopes will be available at the American Legion Post 208, 133 44th St. SE, Grand Rapids, MI.
