It is with great sadness but also inner peace that our much loved Dad, Grandpa and Great Grandpa, Herman Hystek, Sr, has passed away to be with his Lord and Saviour on March 13, 2021.
Herman is survived by his children Bonnie (Dick) Heinen, Carla (Dave) Schellenberg, Nanc (David) Rick, Herman (Alisa) Hystek, Trudy (Ed) Griffioen, Art (Donna) Hystek, also 24 grandkids, more than 60 great grandkids and 3 great great grandkids. What a legacy!
He is predeceased by Anita, his wife and our Mom, Granny and Great Granny. They had an amazing 68 years together. He is also predeceased by his beautiful granddaughter, Lisa Herman was born in Amsterdam, Holland in 1929.
He immigrated to Canada in his late teens. In 1951 he and Anita married and lived in Chatham and later the Toronto area, eventually raising six kids. In 1969 they packed us all up and moved here to BC .
Herman worked in construction most of his life. From building high rises in Toronto to houses here in the valley. At the age of 52, he had a terrible fall, resulting in the complete loss of his hearing. One of his greatest loves in his life was music, but not once in his many remaining years of life did he ever complain. Always thankful for the life God gave him, and he knew that one day, in Heaven, he would hear his music again.
Rest in peace. We love you. Will never forget you.Obituary-
