It is with tremendous sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved brother Ted Bergsma at Grandview Lodge on Thursday January 6, 2022.
Ted was born in Holland and emigrated to Canada with his parents and siblings when he was 4 years old. Ted resided in Dunnville with several careers but mainly at Wabasso and Bick’s Pickles (Smuckers). Following retirement Ted enjoyed occupying his time as a devoted Star Trek Fan. As his health began to fail, he took up residence at Grandview Lodge becoming a long term tennant and became a familiar face with many of the staff and residents. Ted looked forward to drives with his sister and after coaxing her a stop at McDonalds for fries and a chocolate shake their tours of old stomping grounds would begin. Ted’s favourite was Port Maitland.
Ted was predeceased by his mother Ann, father Evert and brothers Andy, Harry, Nick, and Joe (Kathy). Ted was a wonderful and fun loving brother to Gene (Lorrie), Hank (late Linda), Claire (Barry), Christina (Robert), Gerrie, Anna (Al) and Evert. Ted will be sadly missed by his many nieces and nephews. The family would like to thank and bring attention to the caring and committed staff that assisted with Ted’s care for so many years. Private cremation has taken place. Online condolences and photos at jwhartfuneralhome.com
