Mark Allan Hoekzema, 61, deeply loved husband, father, brother, grandfather and friend, passed away on February, 17th, 2021. He is survived by his wife Cindy, his daughter Megan, and his son Evan (Melodie), along with his mother, Dolores Hoekzema, brother Steve (Paula) Hoekzema, sister Deb (Jeff) Poppen, granddaughters Nora and Naomi Hoekzema, along with aunts, uncles, in-laws, cousins and friends.

Born in Grand Rapids, Michigan, he graduated from Grand Rapids Christian High School and attended Calvin University. He worked as a builder for most of his adult life until driving a truck for Pearson Foods, and finally as a site supervisor for Kent County’s Habitat for Humanity. He loved building and fixing things, along with teaching others how to as well.

He was an avid golfer, who rarely hit with a wood but could crush the ball with a low iron and who was a fiend around the green with chipping and putting. He was a family man, a hard worker, and loved being around people. He was adventurous, fearless, and stubborn. He made a mean pot roast most Sundays for lunch with his world class cup of gravy. He was a beloved husband and father, and a good man.

There will not be visitation with family, but there will be a memorial service held at All Shores Wesleyan Church in Spring Lake on Saturday, February 27th at 11:00 a.m. Masks are required and the service will be socially-distanced. If you are unable to attend in person, the service will be streamed on

Cindy, Ethan, Megan & Family:

I'm so sorry for your loss, am thinking about, and praying for you all.

Mark was a great friend who listened attentively and loved any gathering of the guys - especially on golf trips. You're right, I don't think I ever saw a driver come out of his bag.

I will never forget the golf trip to Pebble Beach and the grand dinner Mark prepared with passion at the house in Monterey, CA. The drama ensued around a glass dish that blew up in the oven. Tough decisions had to be made around what food to eat. We all sat down at a large dining room table and enjoyed a meal fit for kings. Mark loved to cook.

Our golf group and gatherings will have a giant hole in them.
