Jan "John" Koning
went home to be with his Lord and Saviour.
He was 88 years old.
John was born in Sint Anna Parochie, Friesland on July 18, 1929. He immigrated to Canada in 1948.
In 1967, he married Audrey (Aafke) VanderMeulen and they settled in Carrying Place, Ontario, in a house that John built himself.
Throughout his life, John impacted the lives of those around him immensely with his quiet, gentle manner and his incredibly skillful carpentry creations.
John will be missed by Audrey, his wife of fifty years; his children: Walter (Linda), Christy Baker (Mike), Robert (Stacey), and Margaret; and his grandchildren: Eric, Byron, Simon, Daryl, Ryan, Andrew, and Margaret's children.
The service in celebration of John's life was held on Tuesday, February 13, 2018 at Ebenezer Christian Reformed Church in Trenton, Ontario. It was officiated by Pastor Marc Hoogestad.
