W. H. Bredenhof (1922-2010)

This past Wednesday my grandfather, Wicher (Bill) Hendrik Bredenhof, was promoted to glory by his Father in heaven.  A devout Christian all his life, our family is comforted with the gospel of free grace that he embraced.  He was 88 years old and dearly loved by family and friends.  The funeral will be held this coming Tuesday at 1:00 PM at the Langley Canadian Reformed Church.

Here and here you can find some of my Opa’s wartime stories, excerpted from his autobiography, By Grace Alone.

This is Opa with his second-oldest son, Jake.

Opa with our youngest daughter in August of 2009, shortly before we moved to Hamilton.  He dearly loved both his grandchildren and great-grandchildren.  We were all his favourites.

Opa and my step-grandmother with our youngest.

My sister has also posted some beautiful pictures and tribute to Opa.  We’re all going to miss him so much.  We already do.  We were so richly blessed by God to have such a wonderful, godly grandfather.  Soli Deo Gloria.

    My condolences, Wes. He was a great man. I have fond memories of some home visits by him when I was a youngster and a visit of his to our young men’s society.

    Dear family in Canada. Our sincere condolences to the death of your father, grandfather and great grandfather. My father, the brother of uncle Wicher will miss him very much. Every two weeks they had telephone contact with each other, but also serious discussions and humor. Uncle Wicher was a great help for my father when my mother died 1.5 years.

    We wish you all the best wishes to say goodbye to your father and grandfather. We live with you.
    Would you Aunt Sylvia to know that we think of her.
    Dear greetings from Sjoukje Grolleman-Bredenhof and family.
