It is with great sadness we announce the passing of a lifetime Northwood member, George Vanderlip. George was an amazing man who coached, volunteered and was a board member for over 30yrs at Northwood, dedicating 11 of those years as President. George loved to talk, meet new people and help them any way he could. He was always just a phone call away. He was kind, generous, helpful, thoughtful and a very dependable person. He found it important to be a part of something whether sports, various programs etc and Northwood was that place where he could help others achieve, thrive as well as enjoy them. When Northwoods name was mentioned, George Vanderlips name always followed. He was very well respected and loved by many.

Rest in Peace George

It is with great sadness to announce that we lost a very special person who was a huge impact to Northwood and it’s community. Dave Fenn was a tremendous person who took pride in volunteering his time to make Northwood what it is today. He was always there to lend his hands, his knowledge, his skills, and his time to Northwood and its employees. He made sure the hockey rinks and baseball diamonds were up to par and took much pride in doing so. He looked after everything at Northwood whether it was maintenance, hall rentals, sports, events, programs etc. If you ever stepped into Northwood you knew who he was. He was and will always be remembered as “Mr. Northwood”.

​Rest In Peace Dave!
