NEWAYGO, MI (WHTC) - Visitation is this evening at Fields-McKinley Funeral Services in Newaygo, with a funeral tomorrow afternoon at St. Mark’s Episcopal Church in that town, for Lloyd VanRaalte, who died last Friday at the age of 89. The Hope College graduate was the first superintendent of West Ottawa Public Schools when the district broke away from Holland in the late 1950’s, helping it to grow into the Lakeshore’s largest by student enrollment. VanRaalte also worked with the state Department of Education before his retirement in 1980.
