Hidde (Hank) Groenewold went to be with Jesus on January 7, 2019 at the age of 84.
He is survived by his wife Hennie, with whom he celebrated 60 years of marriage in May 2018; his children Susan (Evan) Schuurman, Joyce (Ralph) Leyenhorst and Roger Groenewold; beloved grandfather of twelve grandchildren and thirteen great-grandchildren with four more expected in 2019.
Dad immigrated to Canada from Holland at the age of 18 and worked as a sawmill worker, farmer, and in construction, even into his 80’s. He loved working with wood and we all have pens, bowls, furniture and buildings that he enjoyed creating over the years. He loved his family and his church and, though we mourn and will miss him dearly, we know that he is now in heaven with his Saviour whom he loved and served throughout his life.
A Memorial Service will be held Monday, January 14, 2019 at 1:30 p.m. at Ebenezer Christian Reformed Church, 49245 Rge. Rd. 250, Leduc County, AB.
