Willis Shores, loving husband, dad, grandpa, and great grandpa, age 87, of Fenwick, went home to heaven on Tuesday, December 29, 2020, passing away at the Laurels of Carson City.
Willis worked for almost 40 years at Root Lowell Manufacturing, but his true passion was farming, something he did his entire adult life. Willis also was a great family man who loved spending time with his family, and he will be deeply missed by everyone.
Surviving Willis is his loving wife of 62 years, Jeanette; children, Lori (Terry) Underwood of Belding; Michelle (Tom) Harris of Sheridan; Frank Shores of Sheridan; Wilma Hall of Sheridan; grandchildren, Kendra Ehle; Kyle Shores; Lucas Hall; great grandchildren, Moses Mosqueda; Michael Mosqueda; sister, Dorothy Bergsma of Grand Rapids; and many nieces and nephews.
Willis was preceded in death by his parents, Frank & Hilda (DeVault) Shores; three sisters and their husbands, Maxine & Hugo Conner; Eileen & Howard Kropf; Shirley & Tom Cornell; two brothers and their wives, Don & Mary Shores; Carl & Jeanne Shores; mother-in-law and father-in-law, Maggie & Ernest Michael; daughter-in-law, Loretta Shores; son-in-law, Rodney McDonald; and brother-in-law, Oscar Bergsma.
A celebration of life honoring Willis is being planned for a later date in the spring.
