Obituary for Arv W. Pettit

Arvilee Wayne Pettit, born September 2, 1950, of Grand Ledge, passed away peacefully on November 29, 2017, at his cottage on Douglas Lake, 26 years to the day of his father’s passing. He is remembered by all those who love him for his jovial smile, big hugs, and sense of humor that kept us all laughing. Our beloved Arv, otherwise referred to as Dad, Grandpa, Pops, Papa, Mr. P, Brother, Uncle, Big A and Coach joined his loved ones in Heaven alongside his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

Arv was a longtime fixture of Grand Ledge athletics, graduate of Michigan State University, retiree of General Motors, photographer and seasoned driver’s education instructor. Many remember Arv from his witty sports’ articles in the Grand Ledge Independent and The Lansing State Journal, and his uncanny ability to catch a photo at the perfect moment.
He is survived by his sons and daughter, Joe, Nick (Amber) and Brooke (Tim) , and his 13 grandchildren (Dakota, Austin, Lily, Beau, Ty, Tori, Alexis, Rachel, Jessica, Claudia, Olivia, Jack and Ella) who he adored and will carry on his legacy. He is also survived by his older brother John and other family members. His parents, Darwin and Leona Pettit, and his brothers, Darwin and Mike, proceeded him in death.

Arv will be remembered on Wednesday, December 6, 2017, at Peters and Murray Funeral, 301 E. Jefferson St., Grand Ledge. Visitation will be held from 9:00 a.m. until service time. The family also invites everybody to join them for a celebration of life luncheon at the Masonic Temple in Grand Ledge immediately following the service.
As Coach would have wanted, guests are encouraged to wear their favorite Comet or Spartan attire. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Grand Ledge Athletics (funds to help support athletes unable to pay fees to play), 820 Spring St., Grand Ledge, MI 48837.
