February 23, 1928 – June 14, 2018
We are saddened to announce the passing of our dear husband, father, Opa, and great-Opa, at the age of 90. John was born in Wilnis, The Netherlands, and immigrated to Canada in 1950. In 1951 he married Jean Van Dyk, whom he had dated from the age of 17. John and Jean were married for 66 years, and together they farmed in Agassiz for many years.
John is predeceased by his parents, beloved son David, grandson Travis, and 5 brothers. Left to cherish his memory are his wife Jean, daughters Anne (Mike) Lanting, Coby Hoogendoorn, Audrey (Norm) Thom, and daughter-in-law Maxine Hoogendoorn, 12 grandchildren and 7 great grandchildren, 5 sisters, and many nieces and nephews.
We would like to thank Dr. James Milne, and the nursing staff of 4th Floor South at Chilliwack General Hospital for their excellent care in Dad’s last days. We would also like to thank the staff at Agassiz Remedy Pharmacy, and Jane Klody and staff of The Residences at Cheam Village for their kindness and caring.
Rest in peace Dad and breathe easy.
