Vance Paul Voorhis, Greentown, went to meet his Savior on July 10, 2021. Vance was born February 20, 1968, to Gary and Arlene (Troyer) Voorhis, in Botwood Newfoundland, Canada.
On August 18, 2018, Vance married Trisha (Miller) Martinez. They are proud parents of Micah (Charissa) Voorhis, Micayah (Andy) Overdorf, Naomi Martinez and Samuel Martinez. They also had one grandson, Azaiah Overdorf that filled their hearts with joy. They are also excited to welcome Baby Overdorf #2 very soon.
Vance’s passion was the Lord first and his family second. He lived his life to be an example of the love and grace of Christ. His family meant the world to him, and he made it a priority to spend quality time with them. He also had a deep love for God’s creation. From the woods to woodworking, he had endless creativity.

In addition to his wife, children and grandson, Vance is survived by his parents, sister, Christi (Todd) Delagrange-Hakes, brother-in-law, Chad (Carmen) Miller as well as several nieces and nephews.
He was preceded in death by his brother-in-law, Mike Delagrange and his grandparents.
