After a very full and rich life, in his 96th year, Eliza Mast passed this life and went to be with his Lord and Savior on August 10, 2019, with his beloved wife present at his side, at Millcreek Care Centre, Barrie, ON. He is survived by his wife of 68 years, Adriana Maria Mast nee Oorebeek and his deeply loved children Meeke Claus (George), Arie Mast (Cindy), Leona Gallagher (Don), Audrey McMeekin (Eddie), Peter Mast (Diane), Alex Mast (Joanne).

A dearly loved Opa to 16 grandchildren Allan (Jennifer), Jennifer (Wim), Erin (Anthony), Lauren (Tim), Luke (Erin), Ashley (Joshua), Michelle (Jandrew), Heather (Simon), Craig (Amy), Jessica (Brandon), Jenna (Jeff), Lindsey (Chris) Stephen (Sharon), Sara (Houston), Jeremy, Jesse and 18 great grandchildren. He will also be remembered by his many nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by his parents and 5 siblings.

Eliza Mast was born May 6, 1924 in Rotterdam, The Netherlands and imigrated to Canada in 1950. Eliza and Adriana married in 1951. He worked very hard at numerous jobs to provide for his fast growing family, then eventually started a successful business, E Mast Landscaping. He was a member of the Christian Reformed Church and he loved his Lord and he loved to sing. He couldn't be happier than when he was watching a sunrise or sunset with a fishing rod in his hand, often accompanied by a family member. For most of his life he was blessed with good health and led a very active life enjoying traveling, hunting and fishing. He will be remembered as a strong, generous, trustworthy, fun-loving and affectionate man by all who knew him.

The hole he has left is a big one, but he is more alive now in heaven than ever before and so we rejoice and are comforted.

Resting at Roadhouse and Rose Funeral Home, NewMarket, visitation will be held Friday August 16, 2019 7-9 pm.

Private interment at Pine Orchard Cemetery. Please join us for the Memorial Service to celebrate Eliza's life on Saturday August 17, 1pm at Covenant Christian Reformed Church in Barrie, 101 Ardagh Road.

In Lieu of flowers please make donations to Christian Reformed World Relief Committee (World Renew) or a charity of your choice.

Our deepest sympathies to the entire Mast family. Growing up my family and yours were rather intertwined by the hunting club, church and years of friendship. In later years in Newmarket there was always a strong hug when I came to church. He will be missed but always close in heart. May grace and peace surround you all during this time. Martin and Joanne Faber

He was a cherished friend since 1952, His manner and posture imposing but with an unequalled generous heart of gold, and love for family and friends. We experienced the outdoors in the framework of the Loforna Rod and Gun Club of which he was a 1963 founding member. He cooked for us for over 50 years, breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks; no small task with mostly 15 waiting impatiently, and on top of that harvested his share of game! Now in 2019 at age 95 we lay him to rest as the club continues. He was a man`s man with a love for the Lord. We shall honour his memory with pride and fondness and say quietly, "Well done, Al."
