1958 – 2021


It is with an extremely heavy heart that Maria announces the sudden passing of her beloved husband, Johannes ‘John’ Petrus Sprenkels. He passed away at his home near Bow Island on Sunday, October 10, 2021, at the age of 62 years. John will be lovingly remembered by his children, Chalana (Dwayne), Samantha (Justin) and Darian; grandson, Reagan; mother, Toos Dingenout-Sprenkels; siblings, Mary Jacob-Sprenkels, Peter Jacobs and Peter Sprenkels and their families; mother-in-law: Jeanne (Sjan) van den Broek as well as his sister-in-law, Elsa de Craen and her family. John was predeceased by his father, Theo Sprenkels and his father-in-law, Cornelius van den Broek. John was born and raised in the Netherlands. He married Maria van den Broek on January 22, 1982, moving to Canada in May that same year. Canada was his home. John’s interests included watching Nascar and listening to music. One of his greatest achievements was being involved in the set up of the Blues at the Bow. John took pride in his work around the community and for Alberta Parks. He valued all of his customers and was eager to give a helping hand when needed. Living on his acreage was one of John’s greatest joys as he was an avid outdoorsman. But most of all, his family was his biggest pride as they were very important to him. A memorial service will be held in the summer of 2022. Details will be announced closer to the date.
