Christaan HERBIN

Christiaan Jules Herbin

February 13, 1986- June 7, 2013

On the morning of Friday, June 7, surrounded by his loving family, Christiaan passed away after a 9 year battle with cancer.

He is survived by his parents Sharon and Walter, his brother Jeremy and his sister Emily, his beloved Opa, Gerry Westdorp and so many aunts, uncles and cousins. He touched many people’s lives, especially through his illness. He knew no fear, he did not feel sorry for himself and he kept his sense of humour.

Many thanks are given to all of the health care professionals who helped Christiaan throughout his illness, as well as our family and friends for being there for all of us. Words cannot express how we feel about all of you.

In lieu of flowers, donations would be graciously accepted on behalf of the BC Cancer Agency’s Vancouver Island Centre, 2410 Lee Avenue, Victoria, BC, V8R 6V5.

A Celebration of Life will be held at the Trinity Presbyterian Church, 145 Simms Rd, Campbell River, BC on Saturday, June 15 at 11:00 a.m. A gathering will follow at parents, Walter and Sharon’s home.
