VanderKooy, Timothy Raymon
While peacefully at home, surrounded by his loving family, Tim passed into the presence of his Heavenly Father on the evening of Sunday, June 30, 2019. Tim or “Sweetie” was a faithful loving husband to Coby. A loving, committed, and fun father to Jordan, Jacob, Andrew, and Bradley. Tim was a dedicated, dear son of the late Bill and Jane Vanderkooy. Favourite baby brother of Tracy (Martin) Adema and Marlene (Hans) Voortman. A loved and cherished son-in-law to Jan and Jetty Vanderkamp and respected brother-in-law to Hein (Jose) Vanderkamp, Rob (Annelies) Vanderkamp, Irene (John) Vanderlaan, and Luke (Tara) Vanderkamp. Game-loving uncle to 27 nieces and nephews and a great uncle to 16. Tim was 51 years young. He courageously dealt with esophageal cancer over the last 9 months. He lived for Jesus and was a man of integrity as a husband, father, family member, friend and colleague. He served his Lord through leading in Cadets, coaching sports, running Hockey Night in Cambridge and many others. We are thankful he is fully restored in Heaven with his faithful Saviour. We have been so blessed by the love and support of our family and friends that have been the hands and feet of Jesus to us.
“Then you will know the truth and the truth will set you free.”
