On Monday, May 6, 2019, Lane Idema, age 52, of Caledonia, formerly of Grandville, was welcomed into the Glorious Gates of Heaven after a nine month battle with ALS. Lane was an avid outdoorsman and athlete. He enjoyed hunting, fishing, and just being outside. A man of integrity, if Lane said he would do something, he did it. He had an amazing sense of humor and never missed an opportunity to tell a joke or pull a prank. He was a devoted, loving husband, father, son, brother, uncle, and friend who touched many lives. He was preceded in death by his step-father, Ed Siemen; and grandparents, Arthur and Clarine Westra. Lane will be lovingly remembered by his wife, Deb; children, Seth and Brooklyn Idema; step-children, Aubrie, Trever, Logan, Mackenzie, and Kalen Zuiderveen; mother, Sharon Siemen; sister, Ellen Gonzalez; brother, Jim (Marcy) Idema; parents-in-law, Tom and Pearl Diephouse; brother-in-law, Tom (Kim) Diephouse; sister-in-law, Dawn (Dave) Loew; many nieces and nephews; and numerous special friends including his high school friends from Grandville High School class of "84 Strong." Visitation will be held on Wednesday, May 8 from 2-4 and 6-8 pm and Thursday, May 9, from 10 - 10:45 am at Covenant Christian Reformed Church, 7171 Willard Ave. SE, where the funeral service will begin at 11 am. Pastor Curt Walters will officiate. Interment will be in Chapel Hill Memorial Gardens.
