Scott “Scottie” Alan VanDyke, age 47 of Grand Haven, passed away unexpectedly on Tuesday, October 5, 2021. He was born on September 19, 1974 in Grand Rapids, MI to Eunice Slagter. Scott married Erica Kaiser on June 18, 2016 in Grand Haven, MI.
He enjoyed fishing and playing disc golf on a league. Scott’s family was everything to him and his heartfelt demeanor made him friends very easily. He was always giving his loved ones hugs and calling everyone his “brother” or “sister.” Scott had an infectious smile and could light up a room.
Scott is lovingly remembered and missed by his wife, Erica; his two daughters, Isabella “Izzy” VanDyke and Haylie Frisbie; and three sons, Jesse Lemons, Scott VanDyke, Jr., and Aaron VanDyke; three grandchildren; his beloved mother, Eunice Slagter; brother, Henry (Joy) Slagter; father-in-law and mother- in-law, Frank and Amy Kaiser; and brother-in-law, Brandon Kaiser.
He was preceded in death by his Grandma and Grandpa VanDyke; and his uncle, James Schut.
The Memorial Service for Scott will take place at 11:00 a.m. on Saturday, October 9, 2021 at Lifetree Community Church with Pastor Jeff Elzinga officiating. Visitation will be held one hour prior to the service at the church.
