                                   Hunter Reed Ames-Byron Center, Michigan 

 

Hunter Reed Ames, 23 years young, born to Blake and Carie (Kruis) Ames on November 13, 1995, passed away on Monday, November 4, 2019.  Our beautiful baby boy is now being held by his grandparents, Jack and Debra Kruis, and all those who preceded him and touched his heart. He fought hard to remain here with his sister, Chase Ames; grandparents, Roger Ames, Jim and Marsha Gee, and Connie Chrystan; aunts and uncles, Brenda (Ames) and David Wolf, Melissa Kruis (Tim Vos), Jackie Kruis, Patricia Leon, Tamie and Jeff Trost, Jeremy and Stephanie Doxey, Jennifer and Jason Leys, and James Gee; numerous cousins, so many special friends and his beloved Smokey.

Hunter was a kind and loving soul. Strong-willed and with his own style. His mischievousness was always centered around making others laugh and bringing them joy. So young, he was still defining where he wanted life to take him.  Ever so concerned about making the right choice for his future, he only wanted to make us proud, and he did that in so many unlimited ways. If we all only had one more day to tell him how proud we were and what a great man he had become. Time was all he needed to become a great husband and father.

Hunter was a 2014 graduate of Byron Center High School and attended GRCC. We were all blessed to hold and know Hunter Reed Ames and feel lost without him.

 

The family will greet visitors on Thursday, November 7, from 5 – 8 pm and on Friday, November 8, from 11 am – 12 noon at Stroo Funeral Home (1095 68th St. SE, Grand Rapids, MI), where the funeral service will begin at 12 noon, with Pastor Michael Braden officiating. Interment will be in Blain Cemetery.  Memorial contributions may be made to the Kent County Humane Society, 3077 Wilson Dr. NW, Grand Rapids, MI 49534.

Carie, Blake, Chase and Hunters family...
I am so deeply sorry to hear of Hunter' s passing. My son, Justin was best buds with Hunter at KCDC 20 years ago. They were always up to something mischievous! He was Justin's first real friend and I will always remember a funny, sweet boy that sat out the Spring concert because his mom did not have gum. My heart aches for you. I send you our live and prayers during this painful time.
Dedie & Justin (Lilley)
