Casey Verkerk


June 1, 1954 – Feb. 19, 2007

It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden passing of Casey Verkerk at the age of 52.

Casey will be sadly missed by his loving fiancée Heather Taylor, son & best friend Dan Verkerk, cherished daughter Coby Verkerk, dad Evert Verkerk, & brother Henk (Lesley) Verkerk. Casey was loved & a very special part of Heather’s family also; Bernice (& the late Don) Mills, Jeff, Iya, & Preston Taylor, Steve Taylor & Heather Broughton, Michelle Taylor & Andrae, Magnus, & Tytan Johannesson.

Casey was predeceased by his mom Phia, and brother Robert.

Casey was a very gifted sculptor, musician and songwriter, and like the words in one of his songs, we know that he is at peace.

“As I was falling,

An angel touched my face,

And brought me to this loving place.”

No service by request. A Celebration of Life will be in the spring. Pleasant Valley Funeral Home in charge of arrangements.
