Life Story / Obituary


Dennis Leep, 78, of Pullman, MI passed away on January 26, 2022. He spent his last days and weeks with loved ones.

Dennis was a proud veteran of the United States Marine Corps, who loved adventure, storytelling, and nature. His storytelling often featured themes around his early years as a milkman or driving for RC Cola, his time as Staff Sergeant with the Marines, construction projects, his grandchildren, or Dennis' many adventures traveling the country selling antiques and taxidermy.

Dennis was preceded in death by his parents, Edward and Jeanette Leep and eldest brother, Arnold. He is survived by three children: Russell (Anna) Leep of Hammond, IN; Sarah (Barney) Gamboa of Holland, MI; Terra (Jon) Oegema of Holland, MI; and five siblings, all residing in Indiana: Harry (Bonnie) Leep; Ed Leep; Jerry (Joanna) Leep; Sarah Leep; Nick (Bev) Leep. He also leaves behind seven grandchildren.

A memorial/celebration of life gathering will be held Saturday, March 19 from 2-4pm at the Rusty Rocket Brewing Company: 790 53rd St, Pullman, Mi 49450. Refreshments will be provided at this open house style event and the family will share a few words at 3pm.

The family asks that donations be made in memory of Dennis to The Nature Conservancy, Barnabas Ministries in Zeeland, MI, or Beacon of Hope in Holland, MI.

Arrangements are by the Dykstra Funeral Home-Northwood Chapel.
