VAN KUILENBURG, Wim
1947 – 2018
It is with profound sadness that we announce the sudden passing of Mr. Conrad Wilhelm ‘Wim’ van Kuilenburg of Innisfail, Alberta, at his home, on Thursday, January 11, 2018 at the age of 70 years.
Wim was born on October 10, 1947 in Ophemert, the Betuwe, the Netherlands and was the youngest of six children.
He was always with his animals and loved gymnastics. Wim milked his first cow at a young age which led him to become an avid dairy farmer for fifty-five years. He took great pride in his herd and family farm.
He was a loving husband, father and an amazing Opa.
The Lord is my Shepherd
