Huizenga Statement on the Passing of Richard DeVos

Washington, September 6, 2018

Today, Congressman Bill Huizenga (MI-02) released the following statement on the passing of Richard DeVos:

"It's hard to imagine what West Michigan would look like without Richard DeVos. Rich was as approachable and as down to earth as they come. He exhibited the type of servant leadership that makes West Michigan such a special place. Through his philanthropic activities, Rich led by example, created new opportunities for countless West Michigan residents, and strived to make our community an even greater place to call home. While his legacy will live on, his leadership and friendship will be deeply missed."

On Friday, Congressman Huizenga commemorated the life, leadership, and legacy of Richard M. DeVos Sr. and the positive impact his philanthropic activities had on West Michigan. Bill's floor speech is posted below.
