Chris Kadijk Obituary

Chris Kadijk, beloved husband of Linda of Lethbridge, Alberta, passed away at home on January 1, 2024 at the age of 52.

He is the loving father of: Jake (Esther), Eileigh (Noah), and Caleb (Martha). He is also survived by: Nellie Kadijk, Rowena (Sam) Shepherd, Mark (Sylvia) Kadijk, Willy (Hildegard) Fast, Fred (Margaret) Fast, Regina Fast, Erwin (Sharon) Fast, and many nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by his father Bert Kadijk, and in-laws Johannes and Mika Fast.

To know him was to be loved by him. He was a humble servant in work, in family, in church, and in music (never enough oboe!). Alongside designing and building his family’s home, Chris constructed and contributed to many landmarks and homes throughout Lethbridge and Vancouver. He meticulously pursued perfection in all that he did. From home building to coffee roasting, leading at Crowsnest Lake Bible Camp to competing in cycling, mountaineering to marathons, he did his best in everything. In June 2022 Chris was diagnosed with incurable advanced metastatic colorectal cancer. He lived courageously and bravely through every step to his last days. “You live every day, you only die once” – Chris Kadijk
