C.J. Van Beekum passed away peacefully in his sleep to return home to his Heavenly Father and be reunited with his loving wife on Dec. 28, 2017.
Dad was an energetic and active person all of his life. He served a mission in the Netherlands right after World War II. A few years after he returned from his mission, he married his sweetheart, Elisabeth VanderToolen on June 1, 1950 in the Salt Lake Temple. They spent 46 wonderful years together.
CJ was a devoted husband, father, and grandfather and enjoyed many outings with his family. He loved the outdoors: hunting, fishing, boating and waterskiing.

The family would like to thank all the care givers and staff for the kind and compassionate service they gave to Dad.
