ZANDSTRA, BEN
Kentwood, Michigan
 
On Friday, December 6, 2019, Bernard "Ben" Zandstra went home to be with his Lord, just 10 days shy of his 84th birthday. Ben was born in Schererville, Indiana to Johannes and Jennie Zandstra, the youngest of 14 children. He honorably served his country in the U.S. Army, where he was proud to be a pitcher for the Army Fast-pitch Softball Team. Ben enjoyed baseball and his car and Farmall tractor collections. He retired from Pine Rest after 32 years of service as a security officer and maintenance worker. Ben will be lovingly remembered by his wife, Diane; daughter and son-in-law, Brenda and Steve Conover; his grandchildren, Jenelle (Dr. Robert) Zehrung, Rachel (Victor) Matthews X, Benjamin Conover, Matthew Conover; a great granddaughter, Claudia Conover; his sisters, Sadie Knoper and Betty Templeman; his sisters-in-law and brother-in-law, Judith (John) Dombrow, Louis (Pamela) Venema, Thelma Venema; many nieces and nephews. Visitation will be held on Wednesday, December 11, from 5:30 - 6:45 PM at Providence Christian Reformed Church, 7730 Eastern Ave. SE, where the funeral service will begin at 7:00 PM. Pastor J.B. Wernlund will officiate. Interment will be in Blain Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to the Benevolence Fund of Providence CRC.
