Gerrit Van Den Broek

January 13, 1933 – December 4, 2018
Gerry passed away peacefully at home on December 4, 2018 in Port Alberni, BC. Predeceased by his youngest son Allen Van Den Broek and his granddaughter Ashley Savic. Survived by his loving wife of 63 years Hepie “Heidi” Van Den Broek; his children Barb (Leo), Sheila, Gary (Zelda); his six grandchildren and ten great grandchildren.

Gerry was a hard working man. He worked at the Somass Mill for 42 years. He was always in his happy place when he was out fishing or just cruising the back roads for a good place to cast his rod. There wasn’t a thing that he couldn’t fix – he always found a way! He will be missed dearly by all who knew and loved him. No service will be held at the family’s request.
