Obituary for Arlyn D. Huizenga
ARLYN D. HUIZENGA, 76, of Morrison, IL, died Monday, February 7, 2022 at his home in Morrison.

Cremation rites have been accorded; there will be no funeral service. The family will host a Celebration of Life with a potluck at 12:00 noon, Saturday, February 12, 2022, in Arlyn’s barn at the family’s home. All who are able to attend are welcome to the celebration. The home is located at 12342 Spring Valley Road, Morrison. The Fulton Chapel of the Bosma-Renkes Funeral Home is assisting with arrangements. A memorial to Spring Valley Reformed Church has been established.

Arlyn was born January 7, 1946 in Morrison, IL to Charles and Kathryn (Pessman) Huizenga. He graduated from Thomson High School – Thomson, IL – in 1964. On March 20, 1998 he married Carolyn (Drolema) Houzenga in Nashua, IA. Arlyn worked for the Morrison Farmer’s Elevator for many years, and retired from the maintenance department at the Alverno in Clinton, IA. He was a member of the Spring Valley Reformed Church all his life, and had served on several committees. Arlyn’s passion was woodworking, carpentry and being a handy-man. He also enjoyed watching baseball, football, and watching westerns. He made a cradle for each of his children’s first-born, as well as wooden treasures each Christmas. Arlyn was a wealth of knowledge for Whiteside County residents and their family ties. He put a lot of love and work into renovating the barn on Carolyn’s family farm, making it the perfect place to make memories for all the “kids”. Above all, Arlyn enjoyed his family.

Survivors include his wife Carolyn; children Brenda (Kery) Abney of Davenport, IA, Mike (Jan) Huizenga of Continental, OH, Lydia (Albert) Ohlsen of Morrison, IL, Derrin Huizenga of Clinton, IA and Lisa (Eric) Wiersema of Morrison, IL; step-children, Linda Houzenga of Winnebago, MN, Doug (Michelle) Houzenga of Morrison, IL, and Libby (Bob) Barr of St. James, MN; twelve grandchildren; ten step-grandchildren; five great grandchildren; eight step-great grandchildren; one sister, Lois (Joe) Spencer of Morrison, IL. He was preceded in death by many aunts and uncles.
