David “Dave” Schipper passed away unexpectedly at his home on Monday, August 21, 2017 in Lake Odessa, MI at the age of 62. David was born on April 26, 1955 in Grand Rapids, MI to his parents, Jacob and Gertrude Schipper. He graduated from Grand Valley State University with a degree in Environmental Science. He married Elaine VanNoord in 1976. Dave worked for the State of Michigan as a Senior Environmental Quality Analyst for 29 years. Dave was a patient and generous man with a deep love for the Lord and his family. He invested in others and worked actively in several ministries to spread the love of Christ. Outside of work, he spent his time outdoors where he was most happy. He enjoyed his garden, hunting, fishing, camping, boating and most of all spending time with his family and grandchildren. David is survived by his wife, Elaine; son and daughter-in-law, Brent and Kristine Schipper; daughter Sarah Schipper; brother Berwin (Diana) Schipper; sisters Joyce (Arnie) Koster and Betty Laninga; and three grandchildren, Petyon, Adilynn and Weston; and by many dear family and friends. He is preceded in death by his father, Jacob Schipper; mother Gertrude Schipper; and sister Marlene VanNoord. A visitation for David will be held on Thursday, August 24, 2017 from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. at Koops Funeral Chapel in Lake Odessa, MI. A celebration service will be held at Ada Bible Church’s Cascade location on Friday, August 25, 2017 at 11 a.m. with a short viewing prior to the ceremony beginning at 10 a.m. All are welcome to attend and celebrate David’s life.
