Hendrik (Hank) Willem van Eeuwen

December 12, 1936 - February 10, 2022


It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of our Father, Grandpa, and Opa, Hank van Eeuwen. He spent his life on his farm and chose to have his passing at his home with close family members.

He was married to wife Esther for almost 39 years before her passing in 1999. Hank enjoyed farm life and had a love for the many dogs he had over the years. Many people did not know that Dad could croon a Dean Martin song or two – he had a great singing voice.

Hank is predeceased by wife Esther, his parents and his granddaughter Jenny. He is survived by: Daughter Willie, Son Peter, Step-son Dwaine and Step-daughter Eileen. Hank had 11 grandchildren and 7 great-grandchildren.

Hank will always be remembered and cherished with fondness and love in our hearts!

We little knew that morning

God was to call your name.

In life we loved you dearly

In death we do the same.

It broke our hearts to lose you

You did not go alone.

For part of us went with you

The day God called you home.

You left us beautiful memories

Your love is still our guide.

And though we cannot see you

You are always at our side.

Our Family chain is broken

And nothing seems the same.

But God calls us one by one

The chain will link again
