Obituary of Antonius "Tony" Josephus Bongers
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Tony Bongers on Saturday, March 23, 2019, a few days from his 92nd birthday. Predeceased by his wife Johanna (van de Ven) in 2001 as well as brothers Grat, Martin, Pete, Sjaf, Harry, John, Bernard and sister, Dina. Beloved husband of Betsy (Hoevenaars) and her children John, MaryAnne, Janet and Josie (2009). Loving father of Hugo (Joan) and Karen, grandfather of Ryan, Dan, Warren, Cole and Ember, great-grandfather of Ken, Adleaide, Lila and Presley. He was always so happy to spend time with his brother Bill (who immigrated to Canada with him) and being spoiled by his 8 nieces. He will be remembered for his extremely hardworking nature, easygoing disposition and love of card playing. He'll be greatly missed.
