BULTSMA - Henry “Hank” Dale Bultsma, aged 72, passed away unexpectedly and went to be with his Lord on Friday, September 8, 2017.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Dewey and Minnie (Vander Markt) Bultsma.

He is survived by his loving wife of 52 years, Sharon (Vachon) Bultsma; children Scott, Shawn (Maria), Shane (Betty), Shannon (Rob) Weier; grandchildren Jesse, Jennifer, John Carlo, Levi, Jazlin, Ethan, Ava, Emery and Ella; siblings Donna (Richard) Harkema, Ruth (Richard) Locke, Judy (Dave) Westra, Peter, Dewey (Karen) and Dave (Carole); many nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.

Hank was born on July 27, 1945 in Byron Center, MI. Although he enjoyed spending time on road trips with his children, taking hunting trips with his friends, or spending time at his cabin in Ontonagon County, he always looked forward to coming home to his dear wife. Hank’s accidental death in the state of Wyoming left a tremendous hole in the hearts of all who knew him. The depth of our loss is matched by the size of his heart that was dedicated to a love of God and committed to a life of service to others.

A celebration of Hank’s life will be held at 11 a.m. with visitation one hour prior to service on Saturday, September 16, 2017, Reformed Church of Corinth, 129 - 100th Street, S.E., Byron Center, Michigan.
