Gerrit Hoogeveen, of Point Clark and formerly of London, passed away peacefully surrounded by his loving family at Stratford Rotary Hospice on Monday, Dec. 12, 2022, at the age of 79. Beloved husband of Joan Hoogeveen (née Crellin).
Greatly missed by daughters Alison (Greg) Wilson and Jessica (Ray) Cousineau and by his grandchildren: Jack, Luke, Sarah, Lily, Jorja, Isaac and Aubrey.
Also survived by his niece Patty McKinlay and nephew Ronald DenHollander, and by nephews Rob, Adwin and John Hoogeveen in the Netherlands.
Gerry was a “people person” who enjoyed visiting and sharing stories wherever his adventures took him. He loved his family beyond measure and thoughts of his daughters, sons-in-law and especially his grandchildren filled him with immense pride and joy.
Following Gerry’s wishes, cremation has taken place.
Private arrangements have been entrusted to the MacKenzie & McCreath Funeral Home in Ripley.
Donations to Canadian Cancer Society or the London Children’s Hospital are greatly appreciated as expressions of sympathy.
