VANBEEST, ABRAHAM (ALBERT) JOSEPH
Abraham (Albert) Joseph VanBeest, born
November 18, 1936 in
Amsterdam passed away peacefully surrounded
by family on Fathers Day, June 16, 2013.
Predeceased by his wife Hedy of 50 years and
survived by his
children Diana, Linda,
Mariah, Tanis, Alexander, Katelin, Fiona, Tamsen,
Julianna, Christina and Mathias. Albert and Hedy
immigrated from Holland in 1958 settling in Calgary, AB.,
and then in 1974, moved to the sunny Okanagan. They lived in Kelowna for 40 years. Albert’s life was full and
centered around his family, travel and an architectural
design career. He enjoyed classical music, singing, and
collecting clocks. Albert was the President to three Kelowna Senior Activity Centers. Above all he loved the Lord Jesus Christ. Albert will be greatly missed by all, especially Shirley, his loving companion of 9 years. In lieu of flowers, please make donations to the Canadian Cancer Society.
