It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of beloved Husband, Father and Opa; Berend (Benny/Ben) Christoffel Steunenberg, aged 90, on Monday January 8th, 2024.

The sadness of his passing is overpowered by a wonderful legacy of love, generosity & faith.

His dying wish was for us to rejoice and so we choose to celebrate the life of Benny.

He was pre-deceased by his grandson Tainen [Daniel & Brenda] and his daughter-in-law Winona [David]
