Neil, to his Canadian friends, Case to his Dutch friends, was born in the village of Rijnsburg, South Holland to Albertus and Maria. He immigrated to Canada with his sister’s family in 1951. He married Nettie on June 7, 1963, along with Nettie’s three children, whose father had passed away four years earlier. Together, they were blessed with one more son, Raymond.
Neil worked hard in the lumber mill and as a sideline he also grew many cut flowers to supplement the family income. Neil loved growing flowers and continued to enjoy his hobby well into his retirement years, even maintaining a row of patio pots at Hallmark on the Lake. He loved to camp, skate and dance with his children creating wonderful memories. He loved his family, friends and fun!
The family extends their whole hearted thanks to the staff and all his wonderful friends at Hallmark on the Lake for their special care, outings and love shown during the eight years he lived there.Obituary
