Kevin Lee Klaassen Sr., age 62, of Jenison, went to be with his Lord on Tuesday, September 15, 2020. Anyone who knew Kevin knew that he loved to laugh. He was always the first to crack a joke and keep you laughing. Kevin was a loving husband, father and grandpa and will be missed by his family every single day. Kevin fiercely loved his family and spent his life making sure he gave them the world. He was the grandfather to 20 (and counting) grandchildren. He invested so much time in creating individual relationships with each of his grandkids and they will each miss him deeply. One of Kevin’s favorite pastimes was spending time up north with Renee at their camper. He also loved spending time with his grandchildren playing “ninja”. Kevin wasn’t the type to sit still, so he kept busy tinkering with old boat motors, starting countless home projects and helping his kids out. Other hobbies of his were fishing, kayaking and riding mini bikes with his boys. We know that Kevin has heard “well done, good and faithful servant” and we all cannot wait to be reunited with him someday. He was preceded in death by his father, Henry; father-in-law, Frank Botma; and mother-in-law, Gerri Zudweg. Kevin will be deeply missed by his wife of 41 years, Renee; children, Hollie  (Mike) DeVries, Alisha (Paul) Konshi, KJ (Hannah) Klaassen, David (Nicole) Klaassen,  Brittany (Steve) Zalenski, Kyle (Kim) Klaassen, Tanner (Sarah) Klaassen, Nick (Courtney) Klaassen, Drew Klaassen; 20 grandchildren;  mother, Claryce Klaassen; sisters, Linda (Santa) Gubhaju, Susan (Max) Braile, Sally (Steve) Nichols; sisters-in-law, Gloria (Dirk) Boske, Rhonda (Todd) Bartrand; and many nieces and nephews. The family will greet visitors on Saturday, September 19, from 12 - 1 pm at Tri-unity Christian School, 5353 Wilson Ave. SW, Wyoming, MI 49418, where the memorial service will begin at 1 pm. Pastor Kerry Watts will officiate. Memorial contributions may be made to Tri-unity Christian School.
