Life Story / Obituary
Don Vos, 63, passed peacefully on Wednesday, November 28, 2018, at his home. He was born, raised and lived in Holland his entire life.
Don will forever be remembered for his bigger than life personality. He had an abundance of smiles, endearing optimism and a crazy sense of humor. Don was an open-minded soul full of generosity and forgiveness. He had an adventurous spirit which included travel, boating, scuba diving, water and snow skiing. There were very few things that Don Vos would not try.
He will be deeply missed by his wife of 42 years Deb (Hop)Vos, children: Jonathan (Joelle) Vos, Rachel (Brad) Haan; 3 grandchildren: (Lucas, Cole and Chase); sisters: Sally (Dick) Kibler, Judy Parrott, and brother Ken (Joan) Vos; parent-in-law: Junior Hop; sisters-in-laws: Karen (Dwain) Kamphuis, Beth Ann (John) Zoet; brother-in-law: Randy (Bev) Hop; beloved nieces and nephews. Don had close friends whom he considered family and many other friends…no seriously, a LOT of friends!
