Geurd, aged 45, born in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, came with his family to BC as a teenager. He worked his early years as a commercial fisherman and the remainder in construction as a contractor, often working with his dad. Geurd had a true love for kids, his dogs, and life itself. He enjoyed spending time with family and friends, golfing, camping, hiking, and being “Uncle Geurd.” As a result of his stubbornness and courage, Geurd beat cancer in the way he lived. He ensured no jobs were left undone, and that everyone was taken care of before he left. Now he begins his final project, alongside his dad, rebuilding the stairway to heaven.

He was predeceased by his father, Henny van Lambalgen, on August 18, 2015 and his loyal and faithful German Shepherd, Blix, December 2014.

Geurd is survived by his companion and devoted puppy, Lucas. He also leaves behind his mom, Siri Hulleberg-van Lambalgen; siblings, Henny Jr., Kristine, Arnie, Tommy, and Sonja; as well as numerous nieces, nephews, extended family members, and friends.

Special thanks to those who have supported Geurd and his family on his journey. In keeping in stride with Geurd’s quiet and private living, there will be no public service.
