Gerrit “Gerry” Hoogeveen of Point Clark, formerly of London, died peacefully, surrounded by his loving family, at Stratford Rotary Hospice, Monday, Dec. 12, 2022, at the age of 79. Beloved husband of Joan Hoogeveen (nee Crellin). Greatly missed by his daughters, Alison (Greg) Wilson, and Jessica (Ray) Cousineau; and grandchildren, Jack, Luke, Sarah, Lily, Jorja, Isaac and Aubrey. Also survived by his niece, Patty McKinlay; nephew, Ronald DenHollander; and nephews Rob, Adwin and John Hoogeveen, in the Netherlands. Gerry was a “people-person” who enjoyed visiting and sharing stories wherever his adventures took him. He loved his family beyond measure and thoughts of his daughters, sons-in-law and especially his grandchildren, filled him with immense pride and joy. Following Gerry’s wishes, cremation has taken place and private arrangements have been entrusted to the MacKenzie and McCreath Funeral Home, Ripley. Donations to Canadian Cancer Society or the London Children’s Hospital are greatly appreciated as expressions of sympathy. Condolences may be made on-line at
