Zwart, Peter 8/8/1969 - 2/26/2019 Otsego, MI On Tuesday, February 26, 2019, Peter Zwart passed away suddenly at the age of 49. Peter was born on August 8, 1969 in Plainwell, MI to Peter and Virginia (Samuals) Zwart. He graduated from Plainwell High School in 1987. He was the proud father of two beautiful daughters, Margaret and Hannah. If one thing could sum up Pete it was his passion for racing. From a very young age you could find Pete at the race track. He talked about and lived for racing. He had built many cars over his lifetime and more recently had helped both of his daughters, Maggie and Hannah, join him in his passion by putting them behind the wheel of their own race cars at Kalamazoo Speedway, which he considered his second home. The only thing that surpassed his love of the racetrack was the love he had for his two daughters. Pete was a loving and devoted father to Maggie and Hannah and he took great pride in watching them race. Hannah described her father as "a real cool cat". Pete also enjoyed hunting in his spare time. Pete was preceded in death by his parents, Peter and Virginia Zwart. He is survived by his daughters Margaret Zwart (fiance Mark Campbell) and Hannah Zwart, his sister Joyce (James) Harnish, his brother William (Varyl) Zwart, a special niece, Stephanie Watkins, many aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, and nephews. He is also survived by his wife, Dena (Buys) Zwart and his in-laws Ed and Sharon Buys. A Celebration of Life will be held on March 9, 2019 at the Martin United Methodist Church located at 969 E. Allegan St. in Martin, MI. Visitation will begin at 10:00am followed by a service at 11:00am. A short luncheon will follow.
