Kevin was born February 14, 1968, in Grand Rapids to Bernard and Charline (Osenga) VanDam. He married his teenage sweetheart, Kriste Barger, on August 23, 1997, in Allendale, and she was everything to him.
Kevin was employed as a truck driver for Blendon Cattle Trucking for 18 years. He really loved his trucking job and his CB handle was “Slim.” Kevin enjoyed hunting, fishing and camping. He was mechanically inclined and loved to work on anything with his sons.
Kevin is survived by his loving family: wife, Kriste; sons, Darrick and Dylan; sister, Debra Jennings; brother, Joe (Kelli) VanDam; and many nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles and cousins. He was preceded in death by his parents, Beernard (Charline) VanDam; brother, Don VanDam; and brother-in-law, Bill Jennings.
The Funeral Service for Kevin will be at 2 p.m. Tuesday, January 2, 2017, at Klaassen Family Funeral Home with Pastor John Kasper officiating. Interment will be at the Chapel Hill Cemetery in Grand Rapids. Friends may meet the family one hour prior to the service.
