Melle Huizinga



The family is sad to announce Melle’s sudden passing at the very start of his eagerly anticipated adventure of traveling in Ethiopia.

He will be lovingly remembered by his wife, Dolores, son, James, daughter-in-law, Diane, granddaughter, Ruth, sister, Vicki Schenk, brother, John, brother-in-law, David Petersen (Laurie), sister-in-law, Joyce Van Spronsen as well as numerous nieces, nephews, cousins and many good friends.

Melle was predeceased by his daughter, Michelle and brothers and sisters, Betty DeJong, Minke Huizinga, George, Cecil, Pat Bakker, and brother-in-law and special friend, Morris Schenk as well as many close family members from Dolores’ side of the family.

Melle was a dedicated life-long educator. Melle loved the arts, especially spoken word as a poet and writer. Melle lived a life of adventure that included a deep thirst for justice, which involved him in many organizations and ministries. Most recently, he concentrated most on work with peace and reconciliation with our indigenous peoples. Melle initiated and facilitated a First Nations, Metis and Inuit module offered by The King’s University to its Education students.
