Obituary for Robert Doornbos

June 26, 1945 - March 4, 2019
Hudsonville, Michigan | Age 73


Robert Doornbos, age 73, passed away on Monday, March 4, 2019.

Robert was a wonderful husband, father and grandfather. The kids could always count on "straight talk" from Grandpa. He was a fabulous artist and worked as a graphic designer illustrator his entire career. He was well-known for his advertising expertise, watercolors, and drawings for the MSRA (Michigan Shipwreck Assoc.). He enjoyed being outdoors and spending time on his tractor "Allis". He was known for that Doornbos humor that made everyone laugh. He will certainly be missed.

Robert was preceded in death by his parents; John and Maggie Doornbos; in-laws, Richard and Sally Groot; brother, Howard Doornbos; brother, Clarence Doornbos; and sister-in-law, Judy Redinger.

He is survived by his wife, Cheryl; children and grandchildren, Brent and Laurie Larson-Doornbos (Andy Groggel (Erica Christenson), Peter Groggel, Leann Lahmann (Jacob)); Darin and Liza Doornbos (Raelynn, Jesse, John); Kristen and Christopher Gryzen (Michael, Joshua); Lisa Doornbos (Adreanna); 4 great-grandchildren; sister, Ruth and Dave Hoeksema; sister-in-law, Kay Doornbos; sister-in-law, Jan Doornbos; brother-in-law, Richard and Marie Groot; and many nieces and nephews.
