Victor Kenyon, 72
Victor Kenyon, 72, made his transition on Sept. 18, 2014. He is now enfolded in and as the light and love of God. He now is continuing his eternal, spiritual, existence as a greater expression of the pure light and love of God that we all are.
Victor was born Nov. 10, 1941, and raised in Grand Rapids. He attended Kendall School of Design in Grand Rapids. He worked in the interior design department at the J.L. Hudson Company in Detroit and for the John Straus Showroom in Chicago. He returned to Holland in 1972 where he worked in the real estate area.
In 1979 he, along with his life's partner of 47 years Roger Arbury, co-founded the catering business "You've Got It Coming," in Naples, Fla. In 2010, after 31 years, they both retired to spend their time between Naples and Holland.
Victor was active on various boards at the Ox-Bow School of Art in Saugatuck and served as chairman of the summer events when they first located the event at the campus along the Kalamazoo River.
He loved animals and supported rescue and adoption services, especially 4 Paws for a Cause.
He was a charter member of Unity Church on the Lakeshore. He truly loved all his friends in the Holland and Saugatuck-Douglas area and he loved to entertain them.
He will be missed by all who knew him, but his loved ones affirm that "Those we love do not go away, they walk beside us every day."
A memorial celebration of his life will be Sunday, Oct. 19, at 2 p.m. at the Community Church of Douglas, 6874 Wiley Road, Douglas.
A reception will follow the celebration service at the Button-Petter Gallery in Douglas, 161 Blue Star Highway.
