October 20, 1932 - February 14, 2018

We sadly announce the death of our dear father, Hendrik Bres at age 85 on February 14, 2018 at the Sarcee Carewest Hospice, Calgary Alberta. He died surrounded by family after a brief illness after several years with cancer.
Dad was born in 1932 in The Hague, the Netherlands. He moved to Canada in 1959 with his wife, raising three children, becoming a Canadian citizen and working his trade as a printer. He later devoted his full energies to his artistic career as a painter and an active member of the Alberta art world. He was an influential member and annual contributor to the Edmonton Contemporary Artists Society. He had several solo art exhibits in commercial galleries and the Edmonton Art Gallery. He lived in Calgary in his later years.
He is survived by his loving children, Odd (Barb), Karin (Mark) and Faye (Lawrence); and grandchildren, Alexander, Margo, Erika, Shayne, William, Simon, and Devon. We are forever thankful for him and will miss him.
We especially thank the caring staff at the Rockyview Hospital and the Sarcee Carewest Hospice.
A celebration and memorial will be held this spring. We invite you to leave memories and messages with Elegant Tributes Funeral Chapel, Calgary, Alberta.
