Win Elzinga, humble child of God, was called to his heavenly home on March 28, 2023.
He was a kind and loving husband and father, brother and friend always thinking of others before himself.
Win attended Calvin College and later attended and graduated from University of Windsor as a Civil Engineer which would steer him into Land Development. He worked on several projects in the East Coast and South Western Ontario. He began the company Thames Valley Engineering along with a partner. Eventually Win ran the company on his own for a number of years and retired about three years ago.
Over the years Win was actively involved in his church, Grace Christian Reformed Church, Chatham Christian School, and in the broader community. He was an active member of Rotary for many years.
Win was always waiting for the chance to tell a pun. His nickname “PUNMASTR” was well deserved. He loved to get out on the water and fish for hours. He enjoyed playing golf by himself and with his golfing buddies. He was the greatest chef, you could always find him in the kitchen cooking up a storm.
Win was born September 1, 1941, son of Melvin and Anna Elzinga.
He was married to Marg (Medenblik, Tolsma) for almost 30 wonderful years.
His children and grandchildren are : Greg and Steve, Jeff; Madeline and Alexander, Duane and Carolyn; Zachery and Adriana, Aaron and Jolene; Grace, Maggie Jo and Jonathan, Michelle.
Win is survived by one sister, Gerda and Henk and one brother, Mel and Maryanne.
Also survived by sisters-in-law Rita and Brad Moor, Linda and Gerry Wolting, and Enica Tolsma.
Win is predeceased by his parents, three brothers, two sisters, two brothers-in-law and one sister-in-law.
We as a family want to convey our appreciation for the wonderful care Win received while he was a resident at Blenheim Community Village. You all have very special hearts and we appreciate the love you showed towards Win and all of us, especially during these last few weeks.
Donations will be graciously accepted to the Chatham Christian School in Win’s memory.
