Elsbert Anton Wierenga

August 20th 1938- June 3rd 2024

Bert passed away, with his family at his side, after a long, beautiful life on June 3rd, 2024 at the age of 85. Dear husband of Marian. Loving father to Mike and Bernette, and adored Opa of Caitlin, Jade, Jackson and Maia. Brother of Ed (Arlette), Ineke (Ed), and Hildelies. Predeceased by Laurens (Auk), Aneke (Jan), Jan (Clara),  Cor (Wilma), Peter (Gineke), Wim (Anky) and Coos.  Bert was a favourite uncle of many nephews and nieces. 

Bert was a proud engineer, businessman and outdoor enthusiast. All who knew him will remember him as an avid sailor, and as a man who was always “puttering about”, finding ways to improve things around his properties with his engineering mind. His children and grandchildren will forever be able to picture him on his riding lawn mower, or arranging his sails and knots on his boats to be just so.
