Condolences for the family of “Gerrit Jan van Daalen”

Condolence from John Kemink on September 17th, 2021 12:47 pm

It is with great sadness to hear about Gerrit’s passing. I extend my sympathies to all of Gerrit’s family and friends. My parents Art and Alice Kemink and I have had a long friendship with the Van Daalen family going back to the immigration to Brandon, Manitoba in 1958. His loyalty and appreciation of my father’s work as an artist was greatly appreciated.
I also had the good fortune to be employed with the De Leuw Cather consulting firm where I met Gerrit once again in 1965 after having lost contact after the Brandon years. It was during those years that Gerrit and I commuted to work on Leslie Street in his Volkswagen Beetle. Gerrit was a frequent visitor with Alice after the passing of Art in 2006 and our meetings continued in Gerrit’s home in Kleinburg until very recently.

Condolence from Diane Anderson on September 17th, 2021 10:56 pm

My sincere condolences to all the members of Gerrit’s family. Gerrit was my neighbour at the Gables of Kleinburg for eleven years. He was a good neighbour and we had many conversations about gardening and religion. I enjoyed these talks as we both had travelled and seen the world. It will be sad for me not to see him in the halls or tending his garden. The world has lost a gentle man. I will miss his voice with its Dutch inflection.
