Henry van Dalfsen

1930 – 2014

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Henry on December 23, 2014 in Enderby, BC, born August 30, 1930 in Genemuiden, Holland. At age 18, he came to Canada, farmed in the Edmonton area for 5 years, then returning to Holland for a short time, married Zwaantje. After spending an additional 5 years in the Edmonton area as a dairy farmer, Henry came to Ashton Creek in the fall of 1959. He was a member of the Dairy Association and Odd Fellows. He was a spiritual man and a very patriotic Canadian. It would bring him great pleasure to create things for his loved ones.

He is lovingly remembered by his wife Zwaantje of 60 years; children: Dan (Krista), Bert (Marie), Hetty Burt (Charlie), Ralph (Heather); grandchildren: Neil (Stephanie), Dena, Lisa, Elizabeth (Brent), Nick (Le), Brad (Christina), Jeff, Ryan (Jori), Katy (Jake), Sara; great grandchildren: Liam, Eli, Zachary, Quintin, Vincent, Miriam; and brother: Wouter. He is predeceased by his two sisters.
