van der Veen, Henry

It is with great sadness we announce the passing of Henry van der Veen (82 years old) on August 28, 2020.

Henry was the devoted and cherished husband of Carol for over 55 years, adored dad to Peter (Joan), Robert (Missy), and Jon (Ming) and ‘pake’ (grandfather) to Elly, Jonathan, Joscelyn, Adam, Harry and Tara.

Throughout his life, Henry was known for his integrity, strength of character and a handshake to match. He was greatly respected by all who knew him. Henry will forever be in our hearts and memories and deeply missed by his family and friends.

Henry had a passion for driving and camping across North America; in lieu of flowers, donations to Ontario Parks are greatly appreciated :

Peter, Robert, Jon And families, I spoke with your Mom tonight and was told about your Dad’s passing. I am so very sorry for your loss. Both your Dad and Mom had a very special place in my own parent’s hearts. Carol and my Mom were like sisters and as such, the four of them were also friends. Henry spent many hours driving your Mom down to visit my Mom when she was in Long term care. He always had a funny story and a big bear hug for each one of us. He will most certainly missed. Sending prayers to each one of you during this very sad time.

We are sorry to hear about Henry's passing. Our condolences to Carol and the family.

I (Ingrid) will never forget our stay at Henry's and Carol's home during our familytrip to our Canadian family. Hiking, enjoying awesome breakfasts, watching the fireflies nearby the 'Dobbe' (lake) and having great conversations. I will remember Henry as a very gentle and inspiring person.

To Carol and family, our thoughts are with you in this difficult time.

Always great memories of Uncle Henry at family gatherings throughout the years. He had a handshake like no other, and could serve a breakfast that would keep you full all day. RIP Uncle Henry!
