Dave

Handyman & Grill Master

Dave Van Dam, Steve’s brother, is a friendly face you see in the shop on Tuesdays. Dave comes in to help with the many on-going miscellaneous tasks in the shop.  Whatever needs to be done (including recycling) Dave makes sure it gets done. He also fires up the grill for company BBQs.

Receiving his Bachelor’s degree from Hope College in 1963, Dave went on to get his Masters of Divinity from the Western Theological Seminary, becoming ordained in 1967. From 1967-2007 he was the Pastor/Minister for various churches in the Midwest.

Retirement has been anything but slow for Dave. He spends his time volunteering with Hospice of Little Traverse Bay, India Mission Network, and provides worship/resource leadership for local churches. He is also a teacher/administrator for Three Lakes Lay Academy. Dave and his wife, Penny, volunteer host Sonscape Ministries once a year in Divide, CO. He spends any spare time traveling, swimming, sailing, playing tennis, reading or writing. Most of all though, Dave and Penny enjoy the time they spend with their children and seven grandchildren.
