Hank passed away peacefully in his sleep at Surrey Memorial Hospital in Surrey, British Columbia after a short courageous battle with cancer. He was born in Rotterdam, Holland and immigrated to Canada in 1957. Hank, a loving husband, father, uncle and friend, leaves behind his wife of 22 years, Eva and their children, Brandon and Dustin, along with his siblings, Tony, Peter, Fred, Theresia, Jeanette, their husbands and wives, children and grandchildren. Predeceased in death by his father Anthonius, mother Petronella, brother Art and sister, Hermina. Hank spent most of his life working in the engineering industry. He was a gifted carpenter who loved fishing, hunting and cruising on his motorcycle. Behind Hank’s tough exterior was a gentle soul who will always be remembered for his kindness, generosity and willingness to help others. Family and friends were always what was most important to him. He will be greatly missed by all. As per Hank’s wish there will be no service at this time but a celebration of life will be held later.
