Van BIEZEN, Gysbertus (Bart)

August 1, 1923 – March 8, 2012

Bart passed away peacefully after a short bout with cancer at Sarcee Carewest Hospice at the age of 88 years.

He will be dearly missed by his daughter, Marjan van Biezen, son-in-law, Roger Keats, grandson, Richard Williams (Amanda), and great grandchildren, Landan and Harley Lynn. He will also be missed by his nieces and nephews and their families as well as many friends.

Born in The Hague, Holland, he immigrated to Canada (Calgary) in 1952 after a 3 year stint in Caracus, Venezuela. He enjoyed a lengthy career in Calgary’s oil business as a geologist. Bart was a man of many interests and talents, he was always up for an adventure and his curiosity about the world around him led to a lifelong quest for learning.

The family wishes to extend their deep felt gratitude to the staff and volunteers at Sarcee Carewest Hospice, they made his final days peaceful and comfortable.

A gathering of family and friends to celebrate Bart’s life will take place at a later date. Forward condolences through www.mcinnisandholloway.com.

In living memory of Bart van Biezen, a tree will be planted at Fish Creek Provincial Park by McINNIS & HOLLOWAY FUNERAL HOMES Park Memorial Chapel, 5008 ELBOW DRIVE S.W. Telephone: (403)243-8200
