Obituary

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 : ontarioparks.com/donate

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!

I have many memories with Henry during our younger years during the war in Holland.
I also have many fond memories growing and sharing our life together in Canada with him.
Sandra and I have great memories of family gatherings we had and enjoyed so much!
The Dutch meatball soup and pannenkoeken was Henry’s specialty.
He was a great people person and I will miss him as a brother.
Till we meet again Henry!

I still remember our familytrip to Canada, more than 20 years ago! What a great time we had, staying at Henry's and Carol's house! I never forget the thunder and lightning in the night, my first time on internet, the great surroundings, but most important of all i will never forget 'Henny' and Carol. Their hospitality, interest in other people, their making breakfastskills :-) (enough for 10 people extra)... but most of all their great hearts behind all these things. Carol and family; (We) I wish you a lot of strength in these sad period. (Franciska &) Tim de Vries
