Albertus "Bert" Kadijk Obituary

Albertus “Bert” Kadijk of Lethbridge, Alberta, beloved husband of Nellie Kadijk (den Boon), passed away peacefully in Lethbridge on November 11, 2023, at the age of 81 years.

Bert immigrated to the Granum, Alberta area in June of 1966 from The Netherlands after completing Agricultural College in Ede. In the fall of 1966, he met Nellie in Fort Macleod, and they married on November 7, 1969. Bert was an accomplished church organist who loved leading people in worship, loved classical music, and was stage manager for the Lethbridge Symphony for 20 years.
