On Saturday, December 9, 2017, James Van Dyke, age 85, went home to the mansion prepared for him. After a brief time of service with the U.S. Coast Guard, Jim went on to work as a painter, an occupation he enjoyed for his entire life. Known for his high energy and goofy sense of humor, Jim shared his passion for painting, boating, and sunny beaches with his family. When he wasn't working, he and his wife, Milly loved spending time in Aruba and Florida. He loved his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and his family and will be dearly missed by his wife of 62 years; his children, Terry (Monica) Van Dyke, Sharon Joy Gordon, Janice Van Dyke, James S. (Michelle) Van Dyke; eight grandchildren; seven great grandchildren; his sister, Mary Ann (Don) Furness; many nieces, nephews, and friends. A time to visit with Jim's family will be held on Saturday, December 16, from 2 - 3 p.m. at Stroo Funeral Home, where a memorial service will begin at 3 p.m. Contributions in memory of Jim may be made to the Children's Fund at Spiritual Care Consultants of West Michigan, 1375 W. Green St., Suite 1, Hastings, MI or online (must designate "Children's Fund").
