Jacob BLOK


It is with great sadness that we share the passing of Jacob Blok at 77 years of age on May 7, 2016. He was a loving husband and best friend to Melvina Oleksyn; caring and supportive dad to Jackie Heavenor, Caroline (Mike) Lenz, Rik (Kathy) Blok, and Sherri-Lee (Tim) Tanner; adored Opa to Danielle Heavenor (Jonathan), Jared Heavenor, Devyn Johnson (Dustin), Landyn (Savanna) Johnson, Jessica Lenz, Megan Lenz (Ryder), and Kristin Lenz; and great-grandfather to Ethan Heavenor. He is survived by the family listed above and siblings Sjanie van Kleef, Cor Blok, Jannie Holleman, Wim Blok, Jenneke Hollaar, Jan Blok, and Anneke Blok; and

predeceased by his brother Huib Blok, father Hendrik

Blok and mother Lena Blok van Essen. Jacob was born

in Holland in 1938, and immigrated to Canada with his

family in 1974. He was always there to help whether it

was to fix something or give advice and support.

He loved a good debate and was a fiercely competitive game player. He was youthful at heart and always ready to joke around. And he always let us know how much he loved us. His passing leaves a large hole in our lives. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to the KGH Foundation. A Celebration of Jacob’s life will be held on Friday, May 13, 2016 at 2:00 PM from First Memorial Funeral Services 1211 Sutherland Ave, Kelowna.
