Jan. 1, 1929 – Nov. 28, 2011
Casey went to be with the Lord on Monday, November 28th in his 83rd year, at home in his sleep. He was a loving husband, father, grandfather, and great-grandfather.
Casey is lovingly remembered by Johanna, his wife of 57 years, his children: Joanne, Ron (Elaine), Irene (Ron), Eric (Caroline), Terry (Debi), Harvey (Arlene), daughter-in-law Freda, 26 grandchildren and 25 great-grandchildren. He is also survived by his two sisters Tini and Sophie (Jake).
He was previously deceased by his son Dan, his brother Alex, sister Corrie, and his parents.
Casey immigrated to Canada in 1948 from Amsterdam, Netherlands. New to the country, his first job was working on a farm. He then worked in the Fraser Canyon railway tunnels, and then started his own construction company building local homes. After many years in building, he became a local land developer and continued working until his death.
He had many health challenges over the past thirty years. He was grateful for the life he had and experienced God’s faithfulness in many difficult situations. His commitment to church, Christian education and his community has left a legacy for future generations.
A celebration of life will be held on Dec. 2nd, at 2:00 pm at Cornerstone Christian Reformed Church on McNaught Road.
In lieu of flowers donations would be appreciated to the Unity Christian School.
