Patrick Akerman

The Akerman family first settled on Salt Spring Island in the 1860s. Patrick's great grandfather, Joseph Akerman first came to Salt Spring and was later joined by his new wife Martha Clay, whom he met after she sailed from England on the bride ship "Robert Lowe". Joseph and Martha set up their homestead in the Burgoyne/Fulford Valley of Salt Spring.

Joseph and Martha had eight children including Patrick's grandfather Ted. Ted Akerman married Ellen Gyves, a half native girl whose family lived in the Burgoyne Bay on Salt Spring and were also part of the Cowichan Indian Band. The Akerman family has lived in the Burgoyne/Fulford area ever since. Primarily farmers and woodsmen, they helped settle Salt Spring Island.

Like his ancestors before him, Patrick Akerman has lived on Salt Spring his entire life, acquiring a vast knowledge of the island, its history and its community. After graduating from high school, Patrick worked on the family farm, constructed homes and worked in the forest industry. This experience and background has proved invaluable to him in his career as a Real Estate Agent on Salt Spring Island.

In 1971 Patrick married Brenda Underwood and they started raising a family together on their own farm. The younger generations of the Akerman family continue the tradition of calling Salt Spring home. Patrick and Brenda's children Bobby, Cathy, Gordon and Jenny have found partners, married and started their own families all on or near the family farm.

Patrick and Brenda's kids and grandkids include son Bobby and wife Tanja, grandchildren Christopher and Taylor, daughter Cathy and husband Arjuna, grandchildren Billy and Monica, son Gordon and wife Zena and daughter Jenny, husband Tom and grandchildren Nolan and Mikayla.

Sports and physical activity have always been very important to Patrick and his family. He has been very involved both as participant in a wide variety of sports and as coach, sharing his enthusiasm with young islanders and coaching baseball, basketball, softball, soccer and more. Patrick continues to play ice hockey today and Brenda teaches aqua fit classes at two Salt Spring pools.

Patrick Akerman has been a sales associate with RE/MAX for 26 years and belongs to the RE/MAX Platinum, RE/MAX 100% Club and MLS Gold. He enjoys meeting and helping people fulfill their dream of living on beautiful Salt Spring Island.
