Jeff Ver Sluis

Our deepest sympathy goes out to Barb Ver Sluis, one of our Pine Lake residents, on the loss of her husband Jeff, on Monday, December 2, 2013; and our sympathy also to her family. 

Jeff Ver SluisJeff went home to be with his Lord and Savior, following a short, valiant battle with cancer. Jeff was born November 4, 1953 in Kalamazoo, the son of the late Arthur and Dorothea (Wright) Ver Sluis and was a resident of Plainwell for several years. As a young boy, he worked in his family's celery business and later for the Ver Sluis Freezer in Martin. After working as an apprentice, he opened his own HVAC& R company in 1981, called All-Temp Specialties, which became a highly respected company in the Kalamazoo area. Jeff's hobby was genealogy, spending many hours gathering and verifying information about his family. Jeff was a strongly devoted and dedicated husband, father and grandfather to his family, which includes his wife, Barbara (Sinkler) Ver Sluis of Plainwell; his children, Suzanna Ver Sluis of Long Island, NY, Michael Ver Sluis of Plainwell, Rachael Ver Sluis (Marvin Davis) of Kalamazoo; a very special grandson, Drake Arthur Davis; Judy Merrifield, the mother of his children; brothers, Tim Ver Sluis and Mark (June) Ver Sluis all of Kalamazoo; and several nieces and nephews.
