John Storteboom

December 17, 1928 - January 8, 2013



John Storteboom passed into the presence of our Lord peacefully in the early morning of January 8, 2013.


He is survived by Grace, his loving wife of 59 years and his five children Rudy, Eric, Rose (Tustian), Michael and Liza (Cenaiko) & her spouse Rick as well as grandchildren Kristin & her spouse Dave, Reid, Courtney, Brian, Brandon, Chelsey, Jessika, Haley and Hannah.


John was born in Kornhorn, Groningen, The Netherlands on December 17, 1928 as the fifth child in a family blessed with 14 children. He immigrated with his bride to Canada in 1953 where they began their family on the Sumas Prairie.


John will be remembered as a loving and dedicated provider for his family who had a positive and cheerful disposition; always the life of the party.  John was never shy about sharing his love for Jesus with anyone he met.  Now, John’s journey brings him to rest in the loving arms of his personal Lord and Saviour, Christ Jesus.


A celebration of John’s life will be held at First Avenue Assembly 46510 First Ave in Chilliwack on Jan 12. 2013 at 1:30pm. 


The family offers their heartfelt thanks to the staff of the The Cascades Hospice Palliative Care Residence and Dr. Bull, as well as Dr. Krakower, Dr Galbraith and Dr. Susan Cooper.


“For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”  Romans 8:38-39.
