Dear Johannes & Annette, Theo and family,
You are in our thoughts and prayers at this time. We have wonderful memories of the Oving family over many years. Your Dad treasured his time with you and in the later years his trips to BC to visit Johannes & Annette were special highlights. He was thrilled to travel with Theo to Holland for an Oving family reunion. You brought him much joy. We will miss Bill but we know that he is safe in his heavenly home, experiencing God's love in the fullest.
The picture attached is of one of the many trips he made for New Life Prison Ministry delivering supplies to Chaplains in various prisons in Ontario.
Sending love from Jean-Claude Rossel and Gerrit, Susan and Jannalee

Bill Oving brought an authentic faith to the Willowdale Christian Assenbly in his early years in Canada - Bill loved the Lord and he loved people - God could entrust him with a global ministry with OM - Bill traded well with the talents he was given - we can hear the voice of the Master saying, well done good and faithful servant - you have been faithful over little, I will set you over much - enter into the joy of your Master -
Theo and Johannes, you have been blessed with a remarkable legacy - Maurice & Maisey Muller

Bill Oving was my first big brother. He was part of our family for as long as I can remember and married my sister when I was just 10. Over the years I have enjoyed his company, his hospitality, his bread, his laughter and his conversation many times. An honest and forthright man---and an amazing gardener with the greenest of thumbs---he was quick to forgive, quick to accept, a friend of children and their parents, generous to a fault. In later years he dedicated his time, his incredible talent as a baker and pretty well all his money to helping further God’s kingdom. He adored his two boys and stayed in constant touch with his large family and many relatives in the Netherlands, often visiting them for weeks at a time. I’m glad he was my brother. My life was enriched in knowing him and spending time with him. He will be missed, now at peace in the eternal garden with his Saviour and Lord.
