Brent Groot

April 5, 1934 - April 8, 2016


It is with much sadness that we announce the passing of Brent Groot after a brief illness at Cowichan District Hospital.  He will be remembered by his loving wife, Afra, his two sons Wayne (Tara), Mike (Lorina), his five stepchildren Diana (Mark), Jeannette Whiskin, Mary Bot, Casey (Teresa) Bot, Carol (Dan) Demong and 15 grandchildren, Kaillyn, Michael Jr., Jarid, Makenna, Shelby, Jamie, Eric, Cori, Mallory, Heather, T Corbin, Emma, Isaac and Lewis. He also leaves behind his brother Cor (Reit) Groot in Creston and many family and friends in the Cowichan Valley, Smithers, Holland and the U.S.A.  Brent loved his family very much and his grandchildren were his pride and joy. He also enjoyed playing with the harmonica band, tending to his beautiful garden and walks on the beach. His flower baskets were always something special.  No service by request. A celebration of life will be announced at a later date. Online condolences may be made at www.hwwallacecbc.com. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the BC Children's Hospital
