David Alan Ver Heul, aged 50, of Grand Rapids Michigan formerly of Pentwater Michigan ended his battle with Glioblastoma cancer and went to be with his Lord on January 21, 2019.

David was a proud, honorable, hardworking man.  Always trying to provide for his family he continued to work until shortly before his death.

He was a fantastic handyman and auto mechanic and could fix almost anything.  He loved all things outdoors.. camping, hunting and fishing. He especially loved searching for morel mushrooms and was especially good at finding them.

Most of all he loved his children and always wanted what was best for them. He fought hard to beat this cancer doing whatever it took so that he would have more time with his family.

He also had a special bond with his cat Dillard who was with him and gave him comfort to the end.

David graduated in 1986 from Pentwater High School where he was in the marching band.  Grand Rapids may have been his home but his heart was in Pentwater.
