Rudolf (Rudy) Wikkerink

August 30, 1936 - July 18, 2015


It is with great sadness that we mourn the sudden passing of a dear husband, father, grandfather and brother who has gone to be with his Lord and Saviour. Rudy is survived by his wife of 55 years, Sadie and his children; Christine and Pete Peereboom and their children Sharlene (Stefan), Daryl (Hilary) and Christopher (Darien); John and Dorothy and  their children Tiffanie (Ryan) and Tasha; Fred and Marjan and their children Laurisa, Breanna and Eric; Eileen and Doug Dykstra and their children Kevin, Ryan, Sarah and Alisha. Rudy is also survived by six brothers, one sister and numerous other family members. He was born in Aalten, the Netherlands.  He went to trades school to become a painter and in April 1954 he immigrated with his parents and siblings to Taber, Alberta where they worked on a farm.  In December 1955 they settled on Vancouver Island. Rudy had many jobs during his time here, from Bamberton cement plant, to Chemainus sawmill, to egg farmer and finally to a dairy farm that he purchased in 1971 and fully retired from in 2014. Rudy was active in the church, the Christian School and Island Farms. He will be greatly missed and his strong faith in God was evident to all. A Memorial Service will be held at the Duncan Christian Reformed Church, 930 Trunk Road at 1:00 pm on Thursday, July 23, 2015. In lieu of flowers donations can be made in his name to Duncan Christian School.

Relation: Knew Rudy from many DCS events.

My wife, Marie, introduced me to this kind gentleman and we always had good conversations at various DCS events. I can understand that anyone close to him would have experienced a great loss. I also got to know some of his brothers. He loved the Lord and is now with Him. Our condolences to his family. We will meet again one day! “What a day, glorious day that will be!”
