Modderman- After a lovely evening with family, Carolus “Carl” Modderman, age 84 yrs of Courtright, passed suddenly on Saturday June 24, 2023. Beloved husband of 58 years to Yolanda. Much loved father of Marinka Molson (Shane) of Courtright, Nanette (Chad) of Saugeen Shores, and Sacha Moore (Jamie) of Cumberland, BC. Treasured grandfather of Emma, Lucie, Jedd, Jordan, Laurel, Zak, Mackenzie, Ben, Megan, Owen, Oban and Alex, and great-grandfather of four beautiful children. Carl is also survived by his brother, Leo Modderman (Theresa) of Ottawa. He was predeceased by his sister, Magda van Zijl (Wim). Shortly after marrying Yolanda, they emigrated from Holland in 1965, first settling in Woodstock, then on to Brantford before coming to the Sarnia area and finally settling in Courtright in 1986. Carl was a happy-go-lucky, positive guy who enjoyed interacting with people through his many jobs and businesses, including selling real estate, owning and operating The Awning House and the Frog Point Motel to name a few. He enjoyed playing cards at the Courtright Friendship Club and always looked forward to his Saturday morning breakfasts with his buddies. In keeping with his wishes, cremation has taken place and a public celebration of his life will be held for family & friends at a later date. In lieu of flowers, sympathy may be expressed through memorial donations to the Alzheimer Society, or to the charity of one’s choice. Arrangements entrusted to Knight Funeral Home, 588 St. Clair Parkway, Corunna. Messages and condolences may be left online at www.knightfuneralhome.ca Knight 519-862-2845.
