Edward Francis LaPoint

Edward “Ed” Francis LaPoint Jr of DeTour Village, Michigan, passed away on August 20, 2022, at the age of 66 in Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan. He was born on November 25, 1955, in Sault Ste. Marie to parents Edward Sr. and Victoria (Polaczyk) LaPoint.

Ed grew up on DeTour and married the love of his life, Terry Ann Fountain, on July 14, 1979. The couple moved to Nebraska and spent the next fifteen years there and raised their two daughters, Samantha and Liza. They enjoyed when the whole family would make the trip from Michigan to Nebraska to go pheasant hunting. When the girls were older, the family moved back to Michigan and resided in Kincheloe for the next twenty-five years before settling in their retirement home in Detour Village.

Ed loved tinkering with cars & engines and going out to the woods to hunt. He was an all-around great woodsman and jack of all trades. He was a fan of the Tigers Baseball team and U of M. He loved music, especially Kid Rock and would attend whatever concerts he could.

Ed is survived by his wife, Terry of Detour Village; daughters, Samantha (Robert Miller) LaPoint of Kincheloe and Liza ( Adam Jackson) LaPoint of Kincheloe; grandchildren, Ryver, Morgan, Ashton, and Harper; sisters, Francis (Benny) Hank of Goetzville and Kathryn Cruickshank of Sault Ste. Marie; and brother, Lawrence LaPoint of Sault Ste. Marie.

Ed is preceded by his parents, Edward Sr & Victoria; sister, Theresa LaPoint; and brother Ricky LaPoint; and uncle, Art Paquin.

A Memorial service will be held Saturday, August 27, 2022, at Sacred Heart Church in DeTour Village. The visitation will begin at 10AM followed by the service at 11AM.
In memory of Ed, the family asks that you wear your best sports jersey, hunting gear or concert t-shirt—but absolutely no suit and tie.

Ed will be laid to rest at Maple Grove cemetery along with his sister Theresa on September 16th at 1 PM. A Celebration of Life will follow at the Fountain Hunting Camp.
