man of the sea, father, grandfather

Passed away at Duncan Hospital on Thursday night after a full and happy life.

Peter and his beloved wife Nancy moved from the Netherlands to Vancouver Island in 1979 and chose Ladysmith as their favourite residence.

His children Cor, Els and Sandra, their spouses Celia, Mischa and Jetse and the grandchildren Shona, Debbie, Fifi, Raiza, Sanne, Babo and Rhea will always remember him.

We, his children, have said goodbye to Pieter on his beloved Vancouver Island.

We have reunited his ashes with those of Nancy in the bay of Evening Cove, their favourite spot.
