On Friday, May 16, 2014, Hendrik (Henk) Krikke passed away in his sleep. Henk was predeceased by his parents, Martin and Winnie Krikke, and his brother Nick. He is survived by his brothers Bert (Lillian) and Eldon (Margaret); sisters Margaret (Charles) Webber and Annette (Paul) Forand; and many nieces and nephews. Henk was born on August 30, 1947, to his loving parents in Andijk, the Netherlands. The third of six children, Henk immigrated to Canada with his family in 1957. The family settled in Lacombe where Henk attended high school. Most of Henk’s adult years were spent in Central Alberta. Family and friends dearly miss Henk, a man known for his Christian faith, his sense of humour, his love of traditional country music, his passion for the steel guitar and his willingness to help others. For many years Henk volunteered at the Bibles for Missions Thrift Store in Red Deer. The family thanks Dr. Costigan, Dr. McKinnon and the staff at Centennial Centre in Ponoka for their compassionate and competent care. As well, the family is grateful to Pastor Bomhof and Henk’s church family at First Christian Reformed Church of Red Deer for their ongoing support, prayers, visits and phone calls during Henk’s chronic illness. A memorial service will be held at 1:00 pm, Tuesday, May 27, 2014, at First Christian Reformed Church, 16 McVicar Street, Red Deer. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in memory of Henk Krikke to the Schizophrenia Society of Alberta [http://www.schizophrenia.ab.ca] or a charity of your choice.
