Obituary for Gary Lemmen

May 9, 1965 - December 7, 2017
Zeeland, Michigan | Age 52


Gary L. Lemmen, age 52, of Zeeland, passed away on December 7, 2017, after a courageous two and a half year battle with pancreatic cancer.

Gary was a loving husband, father, son and brother. He was an inspiration to all who knew him, for his positive spirit and outlook on life, even when faced with challenges.

When not working as an insurance broker for Northwestern Mutual, he enjoyed relaxing and working on new projects at his cottage up north. Gary's positive attitude and dedication to church inspired his friends and family throughout his battle with cancer.

Gary is survived by his wife, Carol Vredeveld; son and future daughter-in-law, Tyler Lemmen and Danielle Dunayczan; parents, Ken and Esther Lemmen; sister and brother-in-law, Lauri and Bryan Denbleyker; and nephew, Brandon Denbleyker. Gary was preceded in death by his nephew, Kendal Denbleyker and his uncle, Carl Assink.
