Born in Uniondale, South Africa, he was a son of the late Helgaard and Annamarie (Davis) Ackermann.
Hendrik was an apprentice bricklayer in 1941 when he volunteered for the Army and did three months training for the signal corps. While on leave, he was reported for having joined up while still an apprentice and was forced to leave the army.

Hendrik spent time in Africa and the U.K. working both as a bricklayer and a radio operator before immigrating to Canada in 1954. He was able to continue bricklaying in Ontario and Nova Scotia and returned to radio operating ending his career as Radio Officer with the Canadian Coast Guard Service at the age of 66. .
Hendrik is survived by his wife of nearly 60 years Daphne (Crocker); his sons Paul (Alba Barbieri) of Brampton, ON; Kurt (Naoko) of Sapporo, Japan; his grandchildren Sean and Leah of Sapporo, Japan and his brother Hercules “Johnny”.

Our sincere condolences to Daphne and family. When I heard of Hendrik’s passing at the Remembrance Day service I was very saddened.
