Father of Hamilton Sextuplets Passes Away


HAMILTON, MI (WHTC) - The joy of a decade ago has turned to grief for a Hamilton family.

Amy and Ben Van Houten became celebrities when she gave birth in January of 2004 to Michigan’s first surviving set of sextuplets, and although their fame faded away as the children grew, they were still leaders in their community, especially at Calvary Baptist Church in Holland, where Ben Van Houten served as a deacon. On Wednesday evening, after he had set up a trampoline for the now seven youngsters in the backyard of their home, Ben Van Houten collapsed and died of an apparent heart attack at the age of 39.

Funeral arrangements through Dykstra Life Story Funeral Homes were still incomplete as this day began, although a Monday service is planned.
