It is with deep sadness and sorrow that our family announces the passing of husband, father and grandfather Arthur Klassen on January 9th, 2019 after a courageous battle with cancer.
Left to mourn his passing are his wife Darlene, his children Darrell (Glenda), Andrea and his granddaughter Ambre. He was predeceased by his mother Elizabeth Klassen and father Issac Klassen.
Art was born July 16, 1949 in Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario. On July 12, 1975 he married Darlene Albrecht the love of his life. Art will be remembered for his faith, love and enjoyment of life and family. He loved cycling, hiking and volunteering but his passion was music.
We would also like to thank the doctors and nurses at cancer care and palliative care who took excellent care of our Dad.
A celebration of Art’s life will be held on January 18, 2019 at 2:00pm at Church of the Rock (Buffalo Place), reception will take place following the service.
Friends that so wish, memorial donations can be made in his memory to Compassion Canada.
