William ALTHUIZEN

Althuizen, William (Bill). It is with saddest regrets we are announcing that, surrounded by his loving family, William (Bill) Althuizen passed away in the Peace Arch Hospital in White Rock, BC on July 3, 2012. Born February 9, 1929 in Einhoven, Holland, Bill immigrated to Moose Jaw, Sask. Canada. There he met and married his life partner of 50 years, Eileen Bennett. In 1973 Bill and Eileen moved their family of 5 children to White Rock, BC. Bill became an active member of his community, volunteering for the White Rock Legion. He was a man full of love for his family, his friends, and his work as a skilled carpenter. He leaves behind a rich legacy including his cherished wife, Eileen, his treasured children, Cathie (Norm), Theo (Georgina), Susan (Wade), Linda (Stephen), and Mark (Dee), 3 brothers, 14 grandchildren, 9 great grandchildren, and innumerable friends. He is pre-deceased by his parents, the late Mr. and Mrs. Henricus Althuizen of Volkel, Holland and his 4 sisters. A Celebration of Life will take place at a later date TBA by the family. Donations can be made to the White Rock Legion Poppy Fund, or the Canadian Cancer Society. We will miss you dearly Bill/Dad/Opa, it won’t be the same without you.
