It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Hendrikus (Hank) Spiekman. Hank passed away on Friday, July 2, 2021 at the age of 92.
Hank was born on April 14, 1929 in Utrecht, Holland and immigrated to Canada in 1958. He but we remain grateful for our time together and our wonderful memories.
Hank was proud to have spent his entire career working at Canadair, now Bombardier.
He was the loving partner of the late Elaine Macfarlane and is survived by his sons Eric (Tracy) and Steven, and beloved grandson Tyler. Hank also treasured spending time with Elaine’s sons Steven (Maria) and Rob (Christine), and her grandchildren Shannon, Stephanie, Sean and Neal.
Hank loved travelling to visit with his sons and grandson and, when family moved closer, having Sunday dinners together. His family and friends knew him as a loving, kind, hardworking and humble man. He will be missed every day, but we remain grateful for our time together and our wonderful memories.
A special thank you to the Doctors and nurses at Sunnybrook Hospital in Toronto for their care and support.
