Hendrik Johan Vermeulen
Hans Vermeulen passed away at Winchester District Memorial Hospital on Fri., July 3, 2015. He was 63.
He was born March 15, 1952, to parents Johanna Vermeulen (nee Zalentein) and Christian Vermeulen, in Loosduinen, The Netherlands, and was the youngest of seven children.
Affectionately known as “Hans” to his family and friends, Hendrik immigrated to Canada where he met Fernande Cayer. They wed in 1975 on Aug. 29. Their 39 years of marriage shaped a tight knit family composed of their three daughters, and two grandchildren.
His legacy is forever respected by his devoted wife; his three daughters, Michelle, Monique, and Melissa; his grandchildren, Owen and Emma McAteer; and his son, Johan.
Hans will be remembered for his sense of humour, for being the life of the party, for his quick wit and humorous story-telling, for his love of cars, Peterbilt trucks and animals, for his love of his wife and family, and as beloved “Opa” to his cherished grandchildren.
Hans will be deeply missed.
