Sebastian Heemskerk of Calgary passed away peacefully at home on his birthday, September 30, 2008 at the age of 66 years surrounded by his loving wife Avemaria of forty-five years and his son Rob and daughter Deanna.
Sebastian immigrated to Canada from Holland with his family in 1952. His entrepreneurial spirits lead him to start Key Concrete Ltd in 1973. His greatest joys were playing cards, golfing, and curling. Sebastian was an amazing man, a mentor to many, and was loved by all who knew him. His infectious personality will be greatly missed by those he touched.
