From Sheryl Switchulis Luke

Heaven has gained an awesome Angel. It is with a heavy heart that I share my Dad has passed away. Dad started his journey in September - and decided he wanted to focus on quality of life in November and that is when he started on hospice care. We as a family were able to spend abundant time with him over those months, and we’re honored to surround him with nothing but love in his last days. We will miss him so very much - he has impacted so many lives! Please see below the arrangements for his celebration of life. We are hoping as many people as possible will join us!!

There will be a service as well in Mecosta / Canadian Lakes in Mid July . There will be more details to come on those arrangements.

So very sorry for your loss. My husband and myself had some fun times with him: country dancing, get-togethers at his home, weekend at the Canadian location, etc.
God bless and may his memory be a blessing.
