Tony Van Ee
1935 - 2020
Teunis Van Ee, beloved husband of Christa Van Ee, passed away, surrounded by his family in Calgary on Wednesday, August 5, 2020 at the age of 85 years.
As a result of the restrictions regarding COVID-19, and the government’s recommendations, a private service was held at Southland Funeral Chapel on Tuesday, August 11, 2020. Burial followed at the Vauxhall Cemetery.
Tony is survived by Christa, his loving wife of fifty six years and their four sons and their wives, Tony Jr. (Anita) Van Ee of Lethbridge, Gordon (Kristi) Van Ee of High River, Dan (Kari) Van Ee of Coaldale and Dave (Nancy) Van Ee of Vauxhall; eight grandchildren, TJ “Tony”, Eric, Kristie, Breanna, Janelle, Danica, Mason and Andrew. We will dearly miss our husband, father and Opa.
He was predeceased by his parents Teunis and Berendina Van Ee; Christa’s parents Fred and Frieda Busse; six siblings and several brothers and sisters-in-law in Holland.
Tony was proud of his sons and thought Tony Jr., Gordon, Dan and Dave were honest, productive, hard working Christian people and a blessing to their parents and their own families.
Tony was born July 23, 1935 in Kootwijkerbroek, Gelderland, Holland and was the fourth oldest of twelve children born to Berendina (nee Groeneveld) and Teunis Van Ee.
He served on the board of the Trinity Lutheran Church in Pincher Creek and in later years Salem Lutheran Church in Scandia.
Family, gardening and growing crops kept this kind, honorable, God fearing man busy. He loved the Lord, his family and farming. May he rest in peace.
