Obituary

Geert Roseboom passed away peacefully at home on Saturday, April 6, 2019 in his 91st year. Geert will be lovingly remembered by (Janke) Jane Smit, his partner in marriage and life since 1954, and by his children and grandchildren: Frederick/Dianne, Ottawa; Jane/Hank, (Janneka/Drew, Jacob, Fay-Anne and little Nova), Calgary and Ottawa; Lincoln/Corinne (Benjamin, Caleb, and Leah along with their mother, Joan), Ottawa and Montreal; and Ferdinand, Renfrew. He will also be missed by his four siblings and many cousins in his birthplace, The Netherlands.
Geert immigrated to Canada (Renfrew) in 1952 and began a long career with the maintenance department of the Bonnechere Manor in 1957.
Throughout the years since retirement, he has continued to use his diverse handy-man skills in cheerful service to his family, church and community. His “whistle-while-you-work” approach to life will be dearly missed.
A Private interment at Rosebank Cemetery followed by a celebration of life will be held at a later date and announced at Renfrew Presbyterian Church. In lieu of flowers, a card or charitable donation would be appreciated by the family. Professional services have been entrusted to McPhail & Perkins Funeral Home.
“What no eye has seen, no ear has heard, and that which never entered man’s mind has God prepared for those he loveth” 1 Cor. 2:9

The Roseboom Family
May the beautiful memories you hold in your heart give you comfort and strength in the days ahead. Geert's love will be with you always. I had the privilege of working with Geert and his love of his job was always visible. During his years of retirement it was always nice to meet him on his daily walks and chat. He will be missed and remembered.
Our Sincere Sympathy
