JONGERT, Herke - Suddenly at his winter home in Florida on January 30, 2014 in his 72nd year. Born in Westwoud, The Netherlands on Feb 17, 1942, the son of the late Pieter Jongert and Trijntje Koeman. Proud father of Frank (Julie), Joost (Bonnie), and Geert (Diane) Jongert. Predeceased by his beloved wife Leny Ton in 1991. Dear brother of the late Piet Jongert (Bets), Klaas (Guur) Jongert, the late Rein (Tine) Jongert, Bets (Cor) Sikkema, Tine (Piet) Focker, and Simon (Simone) Jongert. Loved Opa of Emily, Lindsay, Brendan, Rachel, Meghan, Annika, and Levi. Herke was fortunate to spend the majority of his life doing what he loved most: being a steward of the land and caretaker of his dairy herd. He initially farmed in Westwoud before moving to Canada in 1982 in search of better opportunities for his family. His love of agriculture was imparted on his sons. Cremation has taken place and will be followed by a private memorial service at his request. Online condolences may be sent to jongertfamily@yahoo.ca. Donations in his memory may be made to the Heart and Stroke Foundation or the Canadian Cancer Society
