Revette, Daniel P.

“Dan” “Coach”

Bay City, Michigan

 

          Our beloved husband, father, grandfather, brother, nephew, uncle, coach, and friend unexpectedly went to be with the Lord in the evening hours of Wednesday, September 4, 2019. Age 66 years. Dan was born on May 16, 1953 in Bay City, Michigan to the late Ronald P. and Nancy L. (Nesbitt) Revette. On March 2, 1973 at St. Mary’s Church, Dan married the love of his life, Jill M. Frank. In 2008, after thirty-seven and a half years of service, Dan retired from General Motors. He was a very faithful man that was a longtime member of Our Lady of Peace Parish – St. Mary’s Church. After retirement, Dan turned his passion into a job by becoming the co-owner of the Hitting Warehouse; where he also was an active volunteer in starting the Lumberman Baseball Program. Dan also joined a “social group”, where he worked part time at the Woodside Ace Hardware. Those of you that knew Dan know very well that his whole world revolved around his family and sports. Dan was extremely active in his community; he positively impacted the lives of thousands of athletes from all different ages. Whether it was on the baseball diamond, basketball court, or football field, Dan was always there to teach someone a thing or two about one of his favorite pastimes. For over twenty years he was a proud member, volunteer and coach of the Bay County Pony League. His love for the association and knowledge of the sport led him to advancing eleven teams to the Pony League World Series. Dan was also one of the founders of the Delta College Baseball Club, which later led to the formation of a varsity team. Over the course of the years, Dan participated in many sports.  A favorite of his was playing in blooper ball tournaments with his brother and teammates. Dan was very proud to have the opportunity to play in the over 50 National Championship for Men’s Softball as a member of the KJP Sales Team. He was also a member of the Dow Bay Area Family YMCA, where he enjoyed playing paddleball and met many dear friends. Dan was the first coach of the Northwest youth tackle football team. Dan will be missed by all; his dedication to his community, family, and friends will never go unnoticed.

 

          Dan is survived by his wife of 46 years, Jill M. Revette; three loving children, Melissa Miller, Annmarie (Ron) Bingle, and Craig Revette; nine grandchildren, Marcus, Treyton, Logan, and R.J. Miller, Ella and Maya Bingle, Caleb Anthony, and Aiden and Alecsander Revette, they were all his “Favorites”; five beloved sisters, Nancy (Tom) Cortner, Barbara (Dan) Anthony, Chris Allin, Denise (Ollie) LaFray, and Marybeth (Mike) Fleming; sisters-in-law and brothers-in-law, Jan Revette, Ron (Sue) Frank, Judy (Pat) Donnelly, Linda (Keith) Schauman, Betsy (Bob) Schoonover, and Jack (Bev) Frank; three aunts, Joan Schultz, Mary Ann Young, and Shirley Revette; numerous nieces, nephews, cousins, friends, and thousands that called him “Coach”.
