Hildo HOEK

Hildo Hoek June 21, 1941 – Oct.15, 2016

Hildo passed away quietly and peacefully at home after a

short unexpected battle with cancer, at the age of 75.

Hildo was born in the Netherlands, settling in Canada in the

late 1950’s. He worked in the oil, agriculture and sawmill

industries but his passions were gardening and operating

a Ham radio. Hildo was known throughout the valley for

his fresh vegetables, white beard and his friendly candid

conversation and humour. He is survived by his wife Jane,

daughter Lisa and five grandsons; Nick, Ben, Jon, Robert and

Thomas. He is predeceased by his little boy Gavin. Hildo

was loved by those who knew him and will be sadly missed.

A Celebration of Life will be held in the spring, details to be

announced at a later date. Memorial donations in Hildo’s

memory can be made to the Cancer Care Team, Box 3776,

Smithers, BC V0J 2N0. Condolences may be offered at
