Dann E. Yonker, 63, made his way to the Spirit in the sky on Tuesday, February 2, 2021. He was born May 31, 1957, in Grand Haven, Michigan, to Clyde and Janet (Rycenga) Yonker.

He fell in love with Joyce Ellen Yonker (Van Oordt) and they were married on May 6, 1977. Over the 43 years of their marriage, they loved to travel together, cruising the Caribbean and betting the max at the Tropicana in Vegas. In the summer, you could find them at their pool, soaking up rays and hosting a barbecue for family and friends. He loved growing grapes and making wine: “From my feet to your lips.” They raised two beautiful daughters in their Spring Lake home, three spoiled Labradors, six beloved grandchildren, and scores of friends, nieces and nephews whom he loved dearly.
