Dave was a loving family man. He loved his wife and children and his love expanded even more when it came to his grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

He is survived by his wife, Joyce Tripp; daughter, Kim and Mark Drooger; daughter, Kristi and Tim Overbeek; grandson, Cody and Elisse Drooger, granddaughter, Chelsea and Sam Oosterhouse; grandson, Jacob Drooger; granddaughter, Ashleigh and Joey Endres; grandson, Jared and Mandi Overbeek; great-grandchildren, Carson, Jovi, Marco, and Noah; sister, Mary and Bill Curry; brother, Dan and Claire Tripp, sister, Nancy and David Martin, brother, Steve and Jamie Tripp; brothers-in-law, Roger Sitzema, Bob and Kathy DeGroot, Jerry and Ruth DeGroot, Larry and Kim DeGroot, sister-in-law, Sharon and Doug DeJonge; and many cherished nieces and nephews.

Dear Joyce, Jerry and Ruth, and Larry, You have my sympathy on your loss of Dave, your husband and brother. Dave and I spent a lot of hours together at Bremer and Bouman making fittings in the shop on River Ave. He was a skilled tradesman, but more than that he was a wonderful person with whom I enjoyed spending time with. May you find comfort in knowing that he is in God's presence.
