Wilhelmus Christiaan van der Eerden May 18, 1928 – May 13, 2018

Joyful until the end, ‘Wim’ went to be with the Lord on May 13, 2018. Surrounded by many family members in his home in North Vancouver, Wim leaves behind his wife of 60 years Elizabeth ‘Els’, and children Ron, Eric (Elena), John (Andrea), Linda (Ivan), and Paul (Amanda). Opa’s 8 grandchildren are Matthew, Noah, Hannah, Joah, Ethan, Daniel, Fiona, and Lukas.

Wim is survived by siblings in Holland: Ria and Toos and predeceased by his parents Catharina and Louis, and his siblings Marius, Henri, and Jet.

Dad was a man of great faith and he had a passion to share the love of Jesus with whoever would listen. ‘We will all miss you Dad, until we meet again.’

Dear Els and family,
I am saddened by the passing of Wim, but I know that he is in a better place.
I am unable to attend the memorial service, but have many fond memories of participating
with you and Wim in the charismatic prayer meetings of the 1970's.
In particular, those meetings at Holy Name church, but also those at Sisters of the Cenacle,
and Sisters of the Precious Blood where blessings were poured out upon us by the Holy Spirit. Wim's enthusiasm was contagious in many of these meetings.
May the Lord comfort and sustain you at this time.
In Christian love,
