David Verhelle

David “Vert” Verhelle of Eaton Rapids, MI passed away on January 22, 2022, at the age of 76. Anyone who met David or Vert as many lovingly called him could not forget him. His unconventional personality either made you a bit uneasy or you instantly fell in love with his sense of humor.
If you wanted to find Vert, the first place to look would be his favorite bar stool at Abies Bar, where he worked for his long-time friend, Fred Wager. Vert was either drinking a Natural Light or jumping in the dumpster to squish the trash down. Vert was Fred’s right-hand man, once Vert became sick the tables turned and Fred became Vert’s right-hand man. What they had was a true-blue friendship.
He is preceded in death by his parents, Andree and Mildred Verhelle; sister, Myra “Lisa” Skidmore; and brother, Dennis Verhelle.
Surviving are his three brothers, Wayne, Ron, and Rolly Verhelle and many nieces and nephews.
For those who knew Vert please know he lived up to his nickname through his very last days. To share memories or leave condolences, please visit www.SkinnerFuneralHome.com.
