Dave Weemhoff was a humble man with a ready smile and a caring and gentle spirit. He died May 2 after living with cancer for 10 months. He was 69.

A graduate of Calvin College (now University) and Calvin Theological Seminary, Dave was ordained in 1981 and over the next 40 years served the following churches: Prosper Christian Reformed Church, Falmouth, Mich.; Beaverdam CRC, Hudsonville Mich.; John Calvin CRC, Truro, N.S.; Ellsworth (Mich.) CRC; First CRC, Sarnia, Ont.; Morrison (Ill.) CRC; Terra Ceia CRC, Pantego N.C.; and Faith Community Church, Colton, S.D. After retiring in 2020, Dave and his wife moved closer to family in Tavares, Fla.

Dave had a servant’s heart and looked for ways to be the eyes, hands, and feet of Christ to all he met. Over the years he volunteered for prison ministry and taught church leaders in Haiti. He had a special passion for serving on the Board of Home Missions (now part of Resonate Global Mission). He was a bus driver, as needed, for several schools. In retirement he was a substitute teacher, worked on World Renew Disaster Relief teams in Texas and in south Florida, delivered meals to seniors, and taught a class on the Holy Spirit, another of his passions.

Dave loved history and enjoyed many family adventures—camping, climbing lighthouses, exploring forts, walking beaches, and hiking mountain trails.

Dave is survived by Kathy, his wife of 48 years; four children and their spouses; and eight grandchildren.
