It is with mixed emotions that we announce the passing of our loving husband, father and Pake. Henk peacefully passed into the arms of his Lord and Savior with his wife of 44 years at his side. For the past 7.5 years, Henk lived bravely with Parkinson’s Disease with Dementia.
He is survived by his wife, Ann and children: Kristine & Mike (Mariska & Kolton); Rachel & Stephen (Ethan, Sydney, Myles & Chance); David & Misty (Kingston, Roman & Evangeline); Caroline & Pete (Lily & Maggie) as well as 3 brothers, 3 sisters, 1 brother-in-law all in The Netherlands, a sister-in-law in Chilliwack and a large extended family with many nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by his parents, 4 brothers and 1 sister.
We wish to thank the staff of West 2 at Menno Hospital for the care Henk received for the past 3 years that he lived there. A small private graveside service was held on December 21. A Celebration of Life service will be held at a later date in 2021. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in memory of Henk to the Parkinson’s Society of BC or World Renew.
Our heartfelt condolences, Ann, in Henk's passing. May our Lord continue to comfort and strengthen you and your family.

My condolences to you, Ann, with the final earthly loss of your husband, but also with anticipation of meeting him again in the presence of Jesus. May our Lord comfort and strengthen you!
Our deepest condolences Anne to you and the whole family. We remember fondly the years of having you all as our next door neighbors and how friendly and helpful Henk was if Arthur ever needed his opinion on car repairs. He’s at rest now and there is some comfort in that . Take care. ❤️
