Louwrens Scott Elzinga passed away on Saturday, May 23, 2009 at the family farm in Chilliwack, BC at the tender age of 18. Scott will be missed by his parents, Bouwe and Patt; sisters: Hannah (Matt), Shanine (Chris) and Heidi (Tyler); Grandpa and Grandma Kieneker; many aunts, uncles and cousins. Also left to remember Scott are his many friends and the people whose lives he touched.
He is greeted in Heaven with open arms by his saviour Jesus Christ, Oma and Opa Elzinga, Grandma Kieneker and his cousins, Sheri Lyse and Shane.
Scott was born in Maple Ridge on September 14, 1990. Though he was the baby of the family, he grew up to be the largest of the bunch, our gentle giant.
A visitation and signing of the casket for family and friends was held on Thursday, May 28, 2009 at 7:30 – 9:00 pm at Woodlawn Mt. Cheam Funeral Home, 45865 Hocking Ave., Chilliwack.
Interment will take place on Friday, May 29, 2009 at 10:30 am at Vedderview Gardens Cemetery, followed by a Celebration of Life service at 1:30 pm at First Avenue Christian Assembly, 46510 First Ave., Chilliwack.
Pallbearers will be Matt Zacharias, Chris Spletzer, Tyler Evans, Dylan Niezen, Elijah Nakagawa and Justin Thoutenhoofd with Ron Dyck and Dave Klassen as honourary pallbearers.
He has been born into Heaven, joining many loved ones already there.
We imagine him showing them all the latest technology such as texting and guitar hero.
We visualize him playing in the band with his cousins Sheri and Shane who predeceased him, with the older relatives looking on. We take comfort and great hope from knowing he is safe in the presence of Jesus.
