Gerrit (George) Jan Reinink
It is with great sadness we announce the loss of Gerrit (George) Jan Reinink on Friday, Feb. 19, 2021 at his home with his family by his side. He was in his 58th year.
George was the beloved husband of Lois (Jackson) Reinink and the son of Wilma Reinink and son-in-law of Hilda Jackson. George was the proud father of Gerrit Reinink, Shawn and Myria Reinink, Jordon and Veronica Reinink, Andrew Reinink and Mary Kate Allen and Opa of Melanie, Kenneth, Bentley and Paisley.
George was the beloved brother and brother-in-law of Shirley Reinink, Joanna and Herman Ramaker, John and Ann Reinink, Esa and Gieny Tiesma, Reah Reinink, Diane and Gilbert Gieb, Doug and Donna Jackson, Sue and Windsor McDonald, Bill and Eliane Jackson and Dave and Kathy Newman.
George will be missed by his friends Andy Ives and Robert Kolkman, who took him to his beloved home in Port Loring, and by his many other friends that George made along the way.
George was predeceased by his father Herm Reinink, father-in-law James Jackson, brother Henk Reinink and brother-in-law Ken Jackson.
George spent many years on the road in sales, making friends along the way. George had a way of making conversation with anyone, even if he did not know you. He could make you feel comfortable, like he’d known you for years. He loved his vacation spot in Port Loring and the friends he made up there. George will never be forgotten in the hearts and minds of all of his family and friends.
Public visitation was held at Falconer Funeral Homes - Bluewater Chapel in Goderich on Feb. 23 and 24. A private family funeral service will be held on Thursday, Feb. 25. The family invites those who wish to view the service to visit George’s memorial page on the funeral home’s website on Thursday morning beginning at 11 a.m. Spring interment, Blyth Union Cemetery.
As expressions of sympathy, memorial donations to Ronald McDonald House would be greatly appreciated. Messages of condolence for the Reinink family are welcome at www.falconerfuneralhomes.com
