January 2, 1933 – February 25, 2019
Fred Huizing peacefully passed over to heaven on February 25, to be with His Lord and Redeemer, Jesus Christ. Born in the Netherlands on January 2, 1933.
Fred married Anna in 1958 and together they had 6 children. Anna was a tower of strength and grace and always faithfully stood beside him. Sensing a call to Canada in 1975, he sold his home and business and moved his family to begin a new chapter in their lives.
In 1978 Fred made the life changing decision to make Jesus Lord over his life, his family and business, based on Joshua 24:15 “… but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD.”
He became a giver, giving at any opportunity that presented itself worthwhile. His family was blessed by his counsel, support and encouragement and we have all prospered because of him.
Today all his children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren are serving the Lord. While the sorrow is real, we know that death is not the final answer. He left this earth peacefully, with excitement in his spirit, knowing that he will see Jesus – the One Who saved Him and gave him such a legacy.
A celebration of Fred’s life will take place on Tuesday, March 5 at 3:00 PM at Impact Life Church | 5833-53 Avenue | Red Deer | Alberta.
