It is with extremely heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Henry William van de Pol, on January 7th, 2023, in Mount Brydges in his 47th year. He was the wonderful father to his children Cade, Martyn, and Alyssa. Loving son to Frank (Lucy) and to his late mother Linda van de Pol (nee-Lise). He was also the oldest brother to Adam (Amanda), Jane (late Steven) Robert (Sara), Richard (Shauna), and Leah (Willem). Stepbrother to David (Sandra), Matthew (Melissa), Steven (Kahley) and late Phillip. He was the fun uncle to many nieces and nephews. Predeceased by his Opa and Omas on both sides of the family, Henderik and Jantje van de Pol and Tom and Jane Lise.
Henry was an RN that loved his job and serving the community in such a strong and humble manner. He will be terribly missed by so many friends and co-workers at Parkwood Institute.
Henry had a beautiful heart and a genuine smile that could light up any room. He thoroughly enjoyed hunting, fishing, ATVing, his farm, 2 cats, but his greatest love was his beautiful children. He was a wonderful father.
Also a special acknowledgement to Matt Adema and Julianna Stennett. Henry felt your love.
