t is with sadness, yet with peace, that the family of Cornelis "Kees" Vander Spek announces his passing at the Woodstock Hospital, surrounded by his family on Monday June the 3rd, 2019. Kees was born to the late Cornelis and Cornelia Vander Spek, the sixth of ten children in Rotterdam, the Netherlands. Kees is survived by his seven children, Cathy (Peter) Kralt, Neil (Janet), Connie (Peter) Bos, Elizabeth ( late Dr. Bruce Halliday), Marion (Bob) Dieleman, Janet, David (Joyce), twenty five grandchildren, twenty one great grandchildren and by his sisters; Maart, Riet, Lenny and Pollyan. Predeceased by his dear wife Alice (2016) and by his siblings; Henk, Dinie, Jeanne, Rien and Aja. Kees immigrated from the Netherlands and arrived in Canada, the land of opportunity on his 19th birthday. His dream to own a farm and milk cows became a reality ten years later on the ninth concession in East Zorra Township where he and Alice raised their seven children. Kees faithfully served his church and community. He enjoyed reading and discussing ideas to the end of his life and loved to keep up with all of his family and their daily lives. He was truly grateful for the blessings God gave him. The family will receive friends at the Covenant Christian Reformed Church, 410 Lansdowne Ave., Woodstock, on Sunday June 9, 2019 from 2-4pm & 6-8pm. The memorial service to honour Kees's life will take place in the sanctuary on Monday June 10, 2019 at 1pm with Pastor John Moelker officiating. A private interment has been held at the Oxford Memorial Park Cemetery. If desired, contributions to the Sakura House, or Woodstock Christian School would be appreciated and may be arranged through the BROCK & VISSER FUNERAL HOME, Woodstock, 519-539-0004. Personal online condolences may be sent at www.brockandvisser.com "Trust in the Lord with all your heart. Do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways, acknowledge Him and He will make your path straight."
