September 09, 2023

Date of Service: September 16, 2023

It is with great sadness we share that CORNELIS “CASEY” VAN ROON, of Lethbridge, AB, passed away peacefully at the Chinook Regional Hospital with his wife and four children by his side, on Saturday, September 9, 2023 at the age of 83 years.

Casey is survived by his loving wife Heidi; his children Wanda (Darrin), Tracey (Darren), Craig (Anne) and David (Kim); and ten grandchildren: Melissa (Josh), Matthew, Cole (Marissa), Zac (Emily), Kiley (Tristan), Alex, Cade, Lauren, Emily and Olivia; as well as his great-grandson, Quinn. He is also survived by his sisters: Audrey, Riet and Anne; and his brother Pete (Wilma).

Casey was predeceased by his father Corstiaan, his mother Trijntje, his brother John and brothers-in-law, Albert, Herman and Cyril.

Casey emigrated from the Netherlands to Canada with his family in June of 1952, settling in Iron Springs for many years. He married Heidi, the love of his life and they shared 60 happy years together.  

Casey loved his family deeply and was our hero. With a dog at his side, he was passionate about riding his Harley and restoring old trucks. He loved the Lord and was committed to discipling and mentoring young men through Christian Service Brigade. For many years, he specialized in the ministry of constructing church buildings throughout southern Alberta.  He is remembered as a genuine, honest, and generous man of integrity.  He was fun to be around, and worked and played hard, leaving us with many fond memories.  We love you Casey and will miss you always.

Heidi and the kids would like to express their appreciation to all those who have offered words of comfort, prayers, and support.  We are also thankful for the amazingly compassionate doctors and nurses of Chinook Regional Hospital Emergency, Unit 5A and 3B.

“I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith.”
2 Timothy 4:7 NIV

A Celebration of Casey’s Life will be held at PARK MEADOWS BAPTIST CHURCH, 2011 – 15 Avenue North, Lethbridge, AB, on Saturday, September 16, 2023 at 11:00 A.M. with Pastor Dwayne Dibben officiating.
