Henry M. Kuperus, age 79 of Coopersville, went to be with his Lord and Saviour on Monday, Oct. 21, 2013. He was preceded in death by his wife Thea and daughter Christine. Also greeting him in glory are his brothers John, Fred and Frank. Henry “Hammer” was a loving father to Janice (Doug) Hoezee, Miles (Joy), Amy (Dan) Koetsier, Frank (Dawn), John (Laura), Chad Boyce. He was a grandfather to Blair, Annie, Janie, Irene, Emily, John, Taya, Isaac, Ben, Landon, Josie, Tate, Nolan, Wyatt and Oliver and great grandfather to Elias. Henry leaves behind his sister Grace DeVries and brother Harry along with many in-laws, cousins and friends, including his best friend and “brother” John Kooistra. Henry immigrated to New Jersey from the Netherlands in the 50’s and settled in Michigan in the late 60’s to farm. In the early 80’s Henry (Henry from the Hardware) took a job at Lemmen Shell and faithfully worked there until he retired in 2011. Whatever he received he considered a blessing from God and in turn would use those blessings to help anyone in need.
