Bert Elgersma, age 66, passed away unexpectedly on Thursday, June 16, 2022, and is now with his Lord and Savior. Bert’s greatest joy was being surrounded by his family and friends, especially at the lake house or at Fort Myers Beach. His heart for teaching and coaching extended not only to his clients, whom he considered as his family, but also to all whom he shared a conversation with. Bert’s passion for living life to the fullest, his constant optimism, and his uncanny ability to always make one laugh no matter the situation will never be forgotten and will be carried on through those whose lives were touched by him. He was preceded in death by his wife, Deb. Bert will be lovingly remembered by his daughter, Missy (Dave) Vanderheide; son, Ian (fiancée, Ally) Elgersma; grandchildren, Sydney, Jake, Mia, and Tessa Vanderheide; fiancée, Mary Broucek, and her four children. Bert was born in Canada, and also leaves many siblings and numerous nieces and nephews remembering him there. The visitation will be held on Wednesday, June 29, from 2 to 4 and 6 to 8 PM, and also on Thursday, June 30, from 11 AM to 1 PM at Stroo Funeral Home, 1095 68th St. SE, Grand Rapids, 49508. Interment will be in Winchester Cemetery. Memorial contributions may be made to Phoenix Community Ministries of Fort Myers Beach, 2650 Main Street NW, Suite 400, Duluth, GA 30097. For online donation information, please call or text Rick Good at (419) 996-9559.
