People of Fenton: Dave Van Vilan


“One of my core values of life is being kind to everyone and talking to everyone. God showed his love for us and I’m trying to imitate him and show love to people. I feel you get better results when you’re kind and people respond in a good way and you have respect. You always want to keep your reputation in the forefront of your mind so when you are approached, people respond favorably. Sometimes we have to understand that people are having good days, middle days, and bad days and you never know when you can help somebody. It makes a more pleasant life experience when you’re kind and people go out of their way to show the best version of themselves” – custodian Dave Van Vilan
