It is with great sorrow that the family of Rodney Harink announces his peaceful passing on Sunday, March 25, 2018 at the age of 58 years. Rod was incredibly proud of his family and looked forward to any opportunity to spend time with them. Rod enjoyed living in a farming community and devoted much of his time to the Malmo church and community and his work with youth. His memory will be kept alive through his five children, Jeramie-Lee (Matthew) Nelson, Stephanie (Denver) Wedgwood, Heidi (Tim Perry) Harink, Kaitilin (Landon Carstairs) Harink and Jesse (Chris Reed) Harink; twelve grandchildren, Anna, Callie, Danika, Brittney and Elena Nelson, Dane, Luke, Scott and Ryan Wedgwood, Lincoln Harink and Ryder and Kiahna Carstairs; siblings, Doug (Debby) Harink, Greg (Stephanie) Harink, Stan Harink, Janet (Wayne) Reesor and Judy (Eric) Reimers; sister-in-law, Heny Gauvreau-Harink; as well as numerous nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by his parents, Elmer and Alida Harink; and brother, Don Harink. A celebration of life will be held at Calvary Baptist Church in Wetaskiwin on Saturday, March 31, at 2:00 p.m. The family wishes to thank his talented team of oncologists as well as Dr. Hendriks, Dr. DeWet and the incredible staff of Unit 35 at the Wetaskiwin Hospital.
