I’m so sorry to learn of Henk’s sudden passing. I had the pleasure of volunteering with him at the KSS choir events. Henk always had a warm greeting and smile for all the volunteers. He will be missed.
May your memories be a comfort to all of your family in the future.
Mike LucasHenk was a man of incredible drive and energy. Right to the end he had projects on the go and balanced this with the great care and love he showed his wife. He had great curiosity and love of life and his time here was not in anyway wasted. He was loved and will be missed by the many people he touched.
