Dec. 11, 1918 – Sept. 23, 2012

Dad was born December 11, 1918 in Oegstgeest Holland. He passed away peacefully Tuesday, September 25, 2012 (in hospital). Mom & Dad immigrated to Port Alberni in 1954 and worked together for 30 years in their photographic business.

After retirement they moved to Parksville where they did everything together especially gardening and dad, his woodworking. Dad loved his sports especially speed skating, which he did in Holland with the National Club till his early 80s with the Parksville Skating Club.

When mom (Annie) passed away, dad lived with me (Robert) for the last 13 years, which were very special to us. Many thanks to everyone at the Nanaimo Regional Hospital. Dad leaves behind his son Robert, daughter Simone (Duncan), McVie and grand kids Andrew & Tamara and their families.
