  4. The world is a poorer place without “Henk”, I worked with and for him for many years, his famous sense of humour and his joke of the day made my world a saner place to be,
    I know that Henk is upstairs making God and his Angels laugh.
    To Chris, Matt, Cam & family, Christine & I are so sorry for your loss.

    with our love,
    Christine & George Nicholson

    We wish you strength, peace and fond memories of Henk. He has showed us all how to pass with dignity and he reminds us all to live now. God Bless Henk. We are all better for having known him.

  10. We, too, will really miss talking with Henk in the neighbourhood and seeing his smiling face. I take comfort knowing he spent his time on the things that were the most important to him.
    We miss you, Henk. Till we meet again…

  11. John and Patty Rosby & family

    We loved this man soooo much. When asked if they were brothers,Henk called John as his “illigitimate son” and John always called him “DAD”… not enough can be said on how much we will miss him… all of the Rosby Clan loved Henk and are still finding this reality a confusion and hard to grasp. Irma, we will go all we can to be there for you and your family now.

  12. Henk…

    Forever missed….forever loved…..

    Thank you for the laughter each and everyday.


  13. I just found out. Henk was my brother-in-law for a time in the 80s when he was married to my sister Grazyna. My condolences to Irma and his boys. I remember him for his sense of wicked humour – he was always cracking wise!!

  14. Matt van Staalduinen

    I still miss you every day Papa. So many people felt a great loss when you left us. I’m hopeful that most don’t feel it anymore. Unfortunately I do. I lost my father, my best friend and probably the only person on earth that really knew me. The kids still ask about you often. I love to tell them about you. We love you always

    Matt, Alicia, Ryen, Keely
