Obituary for Robert Lee Vander Band
Robert Lee Vander Band, age 77, passed away on Wednesday, June 24, 2020. He was born in Grand Rapids, Michigan to John and Cora (Doorn) Vander Band on December 7, 1942. He was married to Beverly Smith in 1995 and he passed away 2 days shy of their 25th wedding anniversary. Bob was a member of the Sparta Moose Lodge, Sons of the American Legion and Great Lakes Seniors Golf Assn. He was an avid reader who enjoyed playing a round of golf, visiting friends at the Moose and spending his winters in Florida. But mostly Bob loved his family and spending time at the lake house on Camp Lake. He will be greatly missed and will be remembered for being an all-around great guy who was a hard-worker with an awesome sense of humor.
Bob is survived by his wife, Bev; his 3 sons, Robert and Rose, James and Patty, David and Virginia; 9 grandchildren and 8 great grandchildren; sister, Joyce (Jack ) Duimstra and brother, Ron Vander Band; sister-in-law, Barbara (Gary) Becker; special friends, Bill and Sue Kamp; many nieces, nephews and friends; and his special dog, Sassy.
As Bob had wished, cremation has taken place and a private family service is being planned. Those wishing to make a memorial donation in Bob’s memory may do so to Faith Hospice at faithhospicecare.org.
