JUNE 5, 1928 – MAY 3, 2009
It is with deep sadness that we announce the unexpected passing of our father. He is predeceased by his first wife of 29 years, Dorene Hoefsloot, his second wife of 24 years, Irene Hoefsloot, his grandson Clint Haller and 3 of his 9 siblings.
He will be greatly missed by his 6 children Allan (Laila), Art (Helen), Rosemarie (Tom), Bernie (Cindy), Ron (Carol), Gerry (Penny) as well as 15 grandchildren, 4 great grandchildren, his sisters Suus, Mariette and Trixie and his brothers Steve, Ben and Tom as well as numerous nieces, nephews and many friends.
Dad was born in Holland and immigrated to Canada in 1951 living in Canal Flats, Sechelt, Falkland and finally Greenwood. He was looking forward to moving to Vernon June 1 but unfortunately he became ill.
There will be a service to celebrate our Dad’s life on May 16 at 1PM in the Grand Forks Christian Centre at 7525 – 4th Street.
