It is with great sadness we announce the peaceful passing of our beloved husband, father, grandfather and great grandfather. On Tuesday, August 16th at 5:50pm surrounded by his loving family Henk went home to glory. Henk leaves behind Anna, his loving wife of sixty four years. He was the proud father of Debbie (Herb), Patty (Bill), Michael (Inge), Peggy (Jason). Loving grandfather of Jessica, Jeffrey, Billy (Laura), Corey (Melody), Katelyn (Sam), Christianna, Stephanie, Vanessa, Mitchell, and Kyle. Loving great grandfather to Autumn, Izzy, Luke, William, Kaleb, Peyton and baby Jordan (soon to be.)
Henk was an employee of General Motors of Canada for 41 years. He started on the boys line and ended his career as a supervisor.
Dad's greatest accomplishment in life was his family. He always said, "Look Mommy, what we started..."
He loved sitting outside admiring his garden and watching the birds.
