HUISMAN, Cornelis "Corrie" Marinus

1947 - 2024

Cornelis “Corrie” Marinus Huisman was a caring husband, father, grandfather, brother, and friend. He left this world suddenly and yet peacefully in his home on January 18th, 2024, at the age of 76. As per his wishes, he has been cremated and will be laid to rest next to his wife Diane.

Corrie was born to Ernst and Teuna Huisman December 7th, 1947 in Bleiswijk,Netherlands.

January 30, 1952 he landed in Canada and grew up in the small town of Smithville, Ontario.  He found the love of his life, Diane while working at a grocery store.He married Diane July 1968 and proceeded to bring 2 boys into the world with her.

In 1976, Corrie and Diane started a new chapter of their life when they moved north to purchase a small general store attached to their new home. 2 years later, another boy joined the family. 

The next 5 decades Corrie and his family flourished as part of the community. Many knew him through his passions for his motorcycles and woodworking as well as his presence at the store and community gatherings.

Corrie will be missed by his children Glenn (Guylaine), Adam and daughter-in-law, Donna and grandchildren Jacob and Angela, as well as his “adopted” sons, Ron Lyman and Aaron Greenwood. He was predeceased by his wife, Diane and his oldest son, Allan.

"May you rest in peace, dear cousin."
I have good memories to Corrie, when I spend holidaytime in Canada. He was a kind and generous guy.
My thoughts are with Adam Glenn and Donna, who have to deal with two big losses in such a short period of time. Sending you warm greetings from the Netherlands.

Corrie's Family and Friends.

We are sorry to hear of the passing of Corrie. We will miss meeting him in NL at difference stores, and having a chat. I had been on a few bike rides with Corrie over the years. He was a gentleman, and friendly to all. He will be missed. Condolences to all.

Glenn, Adam and Donna

Yesterday, we placed the headstone topper on the grave stone of my parents and younger brother. While walking through the cemetery, I was saddened to learn that Corrie had passed, when I noticed that he was buried earlier this year. I regret missing his memorial service.

We would like to offer your family my sincerest condolences. It is my hope that you are all well, given the difficult year that you have experienced.

When I was a kid, I can remember going to the store. Corrie and Diane were always very kind to my siblings and I. Some times, we would be a bit short of money for what we wanted to buy, but they would let it slide. Later on, as a teenager and a young man, Corrie would speak his mind and give me advice. I learned from him and appreciate his candor.

Tammy and I wish you all well. Take care.
