VAN HEST, Roy Michael (Big R)
September 5, 1962 - April 17, 2013
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Roy Michael Van Hest on April 17, 2013 with his loving mother Liz by his side. Roy had been living with and fighting colon cancer since February 2012. Roy was born September 5, 1962 in New Westminster. He is survived by his wife Kari, adoring son Hunter, mother Liz, brothers Pat and Tim (Kelli-Ann), sister-in-law Helen and many nieces and nephews. Roy is predeceased by his father Frank and brother Chris. Roy leaves behind his life-long friend Rod Jensen. Roy will leave a huge void in so many hearts as he touched the lives of his family and many friends, young and old. To know Roy was to love Roy. He will be missed deeply and will be carried in our hearts and minds forever as the loyal man he was. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the BC Cancer Foundation, 604-877-6040 or at
