 Frederick "Fred" J. VanDyk, aged 85, of Jenison, formerly of Fremont, went to be with his Lord on Tuesday, May 7, 2019. Fred reveled in being a father and mentor to four generations of descendants, involving himself in their lives as much as time, health, and distance would allow, supporting and encouraging them through the seasons of their lives.  His other passion was pastoral ministry. He faithfully shepherded God’s children in six Christian Reformed congregations in the US and Canada before retiring and several more afterwards. In addition, he spent eight years training pastors as part of the faculty at Smith Memorial Bible College in Baissa, Nigeria.  He will be lovingly remembered by his wife of 65 years, Bette; children, Richard (Dixie) VanDyk, Sharon (Kris) Caverly, Barb (Eric) Verhulst, Michael (Marilyn) VanDyk; 12 grandchildren, 17 great grandchildren; one great-great granddaughter; sisters, Phyllis Schaaf, Louise (Ralph) Kerkstra; brother, Glen (Barb) VanDyk; sisters-in-law, Margaret VanderWall, Dorothy (Paul) Assink; brothers-in-law, Jim Deur, Paul Sneller; and many nieces and nephews. The family will greet visitors on Saturday, May 11, from 12:45 to 1:30 pm in the chapel at Sunset Manor, 725 Baldwin St., Jenison, MI; where the funeral service will begin at 1:45 pm. Interment will be in Reeman Cemetery, Fremont, MI. Contributions in memory of Fred may be made to Emmanuel Hospice.
