Cornelis (Casey) Nicolaas Ringelberg

January 21, 1947 — June 4, 2024

Born in Zierikzee, Zealand, Netherlands and immigrated to Canada as a small child with his family. Died in hospital of complications of Parkinson's Disease and Covid. Beloved husband of fifty-one years to Colleen (Dr. C. Wright) who was also his professional partner. Loving father of Jeffrey (Paige) and Andrew. Opa to his favourite people in the world, grandsons Silas and Eli. Brother to Willie (John), Nick and Maarty (Lisa) as well as uncle to many nieces and nephews. Casey graduated from Ontario Veterinary College in 1972 and, after a short stint in practice in Medicine Hat, Alberta, helped start the first commercial business for bovine embryo transfers, Modern Ova Trends. He was often consulted internationally for his expertise in this technology. After moving to Ottawa in 1975 he opened the Hazeldean Veterinary Clinic where his wife joined him in practice. They built Kanata Animal Hospital in 1985. Casey had a special interest in equine practice which he loved. He retired in 2016 and was diagnosed with Parkinson's Disease six weeks later. They enjoyed many winters in Florida and spending time at the cottage on Wolfe Lake, Westport. True to his roots, Casey was also an active farmer who raised Simmental cattle. He loved planting trees on the farm as well. He will be sorely missed by family and friends. Cremation has taken place. There will be no funeral at his request. There will be a private burial in the autumn. We suggest planting a tree in Casey's memory or making a donation to Parkinson Canada would be most welcome.
