Anderson; Hendrick, (Harry-Andy) Edward

July 1, 1925 – November 4, 2014

It is with great sadness and feeling of loss that accompanies a death but with the happiness of knowing you are in the hands of Jesus in paradise. The family wishes to announce the passing of this kind and gentle father, great-grand father and friend to many. Dad passed away in Chilliwack, British Columbia November 4, 2014. Dad grew up in Halifax, Nova Scotia where he met and fell in love with his soul mate, and his iron lady, our mom, Gloria. They were married November 4, 1946 and raised 5 children. Gloria Carpenter of Kincardin, Ontario, Hendrick (Harry) Anderson Jr. of Kentville Nova Scotia, Gregory (Joanne) of Edmonton, Alberta, Michael (Debbie) Anderson of Edmonton Alberta and Stephanie (Bud) Casey of Chilliwack, BC. Their family blossomed into 18 grandchildren and 21 great grandchildren. Dad was a proud Canadian and served in World War II, where he was wounded. He had a long career with the Department of Nation Defence in Halifax, Nova Scotia, where he worked at the boiler plants as an engineer. Mom and Dad moved to Chilliwack, BC in 2004 to live with the youngest of their 5 children Stephanie and Bud and their growing family. Unfortunately mom passed away only 3 months after moving to BC. This was a definite loss for all of us but especially for our dad. He cared for our mom for the 58 years they were together. He truly missed mom every day since. Dad touched so many people in his 89 years of life, it would be impossible to count how many. He never wanted to see anyone in need of anything and was very generous that way. His most fun was making people laugh. He always enjoyed talking to people. A celebration of life will be on Monday, Nov 24, 2014 at 11am. It will be held at St. Thomas Anglican Church, Gore Ave., Chilliwack. There will be a time of refreshments and remembrance following at the church hall for anyone who wishes to come, especially to anyone whose life dad touched. Interment will take place later that day with the family at Vedder View Veterans Cemetery, Chilliwack, BC. A special thanks goes to our family doctor, Dr. Lisa Legresley who cared for day all these years and dad respected. A special thank you to Corporal L. Dyston who was very helpful to us at this time. He went way above his call of duty to comfort us and we thank him for his efforts. God on Dad with your love, to the place where sadness and pain is no more, into the arms of Jesus. You will never be forgotten but always missed. We will see you soon, love to you both.
