In memory of

Dirk Velthuizen

May 12, 1930 -  April 14, 2021

On Wednesday, April 14, 2021 Dirk Velthuizen, beloved husband of Peta, breathed his last and his spirit went to be with the Lord. His journey on this earth is finished.

Over 25 years in ministry, he served Christian Reformed churches in Telkwa, BC, Brooks and Vauxhall, AB, Drayton, ON, and Kemptville, ON. He and Peta enjoyed camping, canoeing, hiking, visiting and playing TOK in their retirement from bases in Guelph and Holland Christian Homes.

His six children, Dirk, Geraldine, Bart, Andrea, Marlene and Tim, their spouses, 15 grandchildren, and 12 great grandchildren give thanks for his life.

We do not know Pastor Dirk, but have often heard Pastor Bart talked about him proudly and their love for each other.
