After a few months of decline due to cancer, our father entered into the presence of the Lord on Sunday, March 20, 2016. He leaves behind 5 children: Anne & Mike, Jack & Tracy, Rich & Judy, Edith & Drew, Cathy & Dave; 21 grandchildren & 12 great-grandchildren. He was predeceased by his wife Truce in 2005 and his daughter Rita in 2013. Dad was born in 1925 in Suawoude, Holland and immigrated to Canada with his bride in 1951. They settled in Ladner for 18 years before purchasing their dairy farm in Chilliwack. After Mom passed away, Dad volunteered daily at the Gleaners. A Memorial Service was held March 28, 2016.
