Hendrix; Nicolaas Hubertus. Oct 31, 1934 – May 24, 2014. It is with deep sadness that we announce the loss of Nicolaas (Nick) Hubertus Hendrix who passed away peacefully in his 79th year amongst his loving family on Saturday, May 24, 2014 in Port Moody, BC. Nick is survived by his wife of 54 years Martha and four daughters Yolanda (David), Fiona (John), Cynthia (Ron), Melva (Ray). Nick was born in Urmond, Holland and immigrated to Canada in 1957 when he fell in love with it’s beauty and opportunities. On a return visit to Holland he met Martha, the love of his life and in 1960 they wed and settled in Prince George. In 1967 they moved to Chilliwack, which they have faithfully called home for the past 47 years. Nick was well know in Chilliwack through his 35 years as a realtor, retiring from Canada Permanent Trust in 1991. He was one of the top realtors in Chilliwack for many years, winning numerous awards locally and across Canada, and is a past president of the Fraser Valley Real Estate Board. Over the years Nick was an avid antique collector, seeking many treasures at local auctions and garage sales. He especially loved collecting and repairing clocks. Throughout his retirement, he could be seen on a regular basis enjoying a cup of coffee along with his many friends at the local McDonald’s. Nick’s other great passion was traveling and exploring the many wonders of the world with his lovely wife March by his side. But most of all he cherished every moment he could spend with his five grandchildren, Payton, Maranda, Taylor, Joshua and Sean. Nick was a loving devoted husband, a wonderful father and an adoring Opa. He is one of five brothers and one sister and is uncle to many nieces and nephews in Holland whom he loved dearly. He will forever remain in our hearts and in our memories.
