Obituary of Lambertus (Bob) Voorberg
At God’s appointed time, he called Home his child, Lambertus Jochem (Bob) Voorberg at the age of 95 on April 4, 2019. Loved by his wife of 64 years, Grace Voorberg-Kilwinger, and by his children Hetty & Cor Verhage, Ron & Hilda-Ann and Mary Martens and his grandchildren, Tracy, Chris & Katie, Vanessa and Trevor. Predeceased by his brothers, Jo and Marinus and his sister, Elly Flinterman. Survived by his brother Piet.
Bob immigrated to Canada in 1949, seventy years ago! Bob and Grace were married in 1954 and lived together in Holland Marsh for many years. Bob loved the Marsh. In September 2016 they moved together to an apartment in Holland Christian Homes in Brampton. Late in 2016, Bob needed more care and moved to Grace Manor at Holland Christian Homes. We like to say that Mom got him to 93! Our heartfelt thanks to the caring staff in Grace Manor for taking care of him the rest of his journey here on earth. A long, long life well-lived.
