Henry Vandenberg, of Whitehorse, Yukon, passed away on Tuesday, July 5, 2022, at the age of 64 years. Hank was born in Maple Ridge, BC, on June 22, 1958. He moved to Whitehorse, Yukon in 1980.
Hank accomplished much through his life. He was particularly proud of watching his daughter Charlene become a labour and delivery nurse and then mother to his granddaughters Madelyn and Lucy. Madelyn and Lucy loved spending time with their Grandpa Hank and he visited them at every opportunity. Hank’s skill as a meat cutter was highly sought after in his community and he took great pride in his trade.
Hank had many close and colourful friends and he loved spending time with them fishing, camping, golfing, travelling and the occasional pint!
Hank was a helper and he would give you the shirt off his back. Or a delicious rib roast. He will be most remembered for his boisterous laugh, quick smile, no-nonsense attitude, unfailing generosity and kind heart.
Henry is survived by his daughter Charlene, son-in-law Riley and his granddaughters Madelyn and Lucy. Henry is also survived by his brother Eugene Vandenberg as well as numerous nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.
