On July 3, 2021, peacefully with his loving wife Sonja at his side, Al entered into rest after several years of declining health. He was born on June 3, 1946 in Rotterdam, The Netherlands. Al was the beloved husband of 51 years to Sonja, cherished father to Trevor (Colleen) and Darryl (Jody) and proud Opa to Charlie, Eloise and Myles. He is survived by his siblings; Mary Van Delft, Jane Boonstra, Alyce (Tom) Oosterhuis and Nick (Irene) Horzelenberg. He leaves behind many cousins, nieces and nephews, both in Canada and The Netherlands. Al's passions included family and friends, biking, travelling and music. He put others at ease in social situations by engaging them with his big personality, stories and welcoming smile. He will be dearly missed.
Many thanks to the wonderful caring staff at St.Peter’s at Chedoke (Aspen Terrace) where he spent his last year. A private memorial service is planned for the immediate family. In lieu of flowers, donations to Indwell (www.Indwell.ca), a charity dear to Al's heart, would be appreciated. Online condolences and memories may be left at maclarkfuneralhome.com.
