Obituary For Calvin L VerDuin
Calvin Louis VerDuin (1/20/1959-3/27/2021) went home to the lord this past Saturday to rejoin his parents. He was a man who could light up a room with his laughter and bring a smile to your face. Cal grew up in Croton Michigan with his mom and dad where he learned a love of fishing, the outdoors, and animals. His heart always had room for loved ones and he left an impression on everyone he met. Eventually he moved to Grand Rapids Michigan where he met his first wife Mary L. and had 2 children which he adored and cherished. Mary L. pushed him to work for Auto Value as a truck driver for over 20 years.
After he left Auto Value he moved to Sparta Michigan and settled down with his wife Melinda Knapp to raise a cat and a dog together, and live out his retirement peacefully. His love grew more and more as he was surrounded by all of his family including his grandchildren and great grandson.
Cal was preceded in death by his father, Kenneth Lambert and his mother, Dorothy Lambert. He is survived by his ex-wife, Mary L., and current wife, Melinda Knapp; his 2 children, Mary F. (Tobias) and Devyn J. (Casper); his stepchildren, Jason Knapp (Kenna), and Brandon Knapp (Elyssa); 10 grandchildren, Ayden, Elijah, Dylan, Madeline, Adain, Seleah, Isaiah, Nehemiah, and Noah; and 1 great grandson, Greyson.
Services for Cal will be held at Hessel-Cheslek Funeral Home, Sparta on Thursday April 1, 2021 at 11:00 AM with Chaplin Mark O’Reilly officiating. Family will meet visitors for one hour prior to the service beginning at 10:00AM. In lieu of flowers please make donations to the family during this difficult time.
