Bert Altena Obituary

Bert Altena passed peacefully into the presence of the Lord on January 20, 2024, in Vernon, BC. Bert was a husband, father, opa, brother, uncle, and friend.

Bert will be deeply missed by his family; his wife, Joanne; his four daughters, Rachel (Kyle), Sarah, Miriam, and Kelsey; and his eight grandchildren, Karis, Samuel, Judah, Lucy, Naomi, Kyler, and Athena. He was raised in Red Deer, Alberta, with his seven siblings who sadly miss and love him: John (Phyllis), Hans (Mary), Berna (Allan), Ken (Irene), Nico (Joanne), Emmy, and Ben (Rene), along with many other friends and family members in Canada, the United States, and the Netherlands. We rejoice knowing that he is with his infant grandson, Isaac, who passed away in 2015.

Klaas Lubbertus Cornelus Altena was born April 20, 1949, in Enschede, Netherlands, and emigrated to Canada in 1952. As a young adult, Bert moved to British Columbia and in 1979, he started his 35-year-long journey at Bethesda Christian Association, where he dedicated his leadership to faithfully serving people with disabilities and their families.

His family thanks his loved ones for their support, the staff at Polson Centre for their excellent care, and the network of believers who prayed for his peace and joy as Jesus welcomed him home.
