Obituary of Kenneth Paul Wiersma

Kenneth Paul Wiersma, 61, of Beamsville and formally Grimsby, passed away peacefully at home in the loving arms of his family. 


Ken was born in Grimsby to Mient (Mike) and Jacoba (Coba) Wiersma on April 4th, 1963. Growing up on a local farm he initially trained as a stone mason with his dad before being left paraplegic at 25 following a motorcycle accident. 


Despite this, Ken built an amazing life which included many road trips. He became a devoted husband and father, raising three incredible daughters who were his pride and joy. He became a familiar sight on our local roads during his frequent “walks”, always happy to stop for a chat. Ken considered himself “handy-capable”, building and flying RC airplanes for a time. With the help of his best friend and brother Rob, he worked on many home improvement projects, providing a lovely home for his family and furry friends.


Ken is survived by his loving wife Sherri (Bartolotta) and amazing daughters Rylee, Maddy, and Morgan. Siblings John (Delina) Wiersma, Jim (Wilma) Wiersma, Shirley (Ken) Underwood, Dorothy (Paul) Vandersteen, Dennis (Dianne) Wiersma, and Rob (Tracy Varcoe) Wiersma. Son in law to Jan Morrow and beloved brother- in -law to Jodi Chatelain and Lisa Anderson. Nieces, nephews, as well as great nieces and nephews, too numerous to list, all loved. He is preceded in death by his parents Mike and Coba Wiersma. 


Home and family is where his heart lies and where he will forever remain. Cremation has taken place with a Celebration of Life to be held April 20th, 2024 at our home. Please drop in to honour this wonderful man.
