Marius spent most of his years, after immigrating from Holland, on the farm where he worked tirelessly to provide for his family. He was well known in Blenheim, especially among the Dutch community. He enjoyed playing cards with his fellow Dutchmen and his family. Marius enjoyed going for morning coffee “at the Venus” with his friends while he was able to. His children and 5 grandchildren were his pride and joy and he would light up whenever he was with them.
