Dear Friends

I'm so sorry to be the bearer of this sad news, bud our beloved friend Pieter past away due to a heart failure. After leaving his apartment yesterday noon we found him this morning sitting in his car in the garage. He died very peacefully and did not suffer. I had yesterday a 2 our (work-related) skype call with Pieter until a couple af minutes before he had to leave Rotterdam, getting to the office in Brussels and nothing was indication that he was ill our feeling bad. He said goodbye to his lovely wife Karen and left the house...........

We all know Pieter as a class guy, generous, with a great sense of humor and always there to help, remember when STeiner announced pulling the plug out of this great site, immediately Pieter took over, just to ensure we all could stay in touche.

Please join me in expressing condolences to Karen and the family by replying to this message, i will print them out and hand them over to Karen!

As a last salute this picture from last week new year eve, Pieter as we all know him, a class act with a big smile!

Such sad news I still can’t believe it.

What will we do without your famous t-shirts at Britstoc.

RIP Pieter.

Love Pete and Fi

Sitting here with tears in my eyes. Such sad and sudden news.
Pieter will be sorely missed by all that knew him.
I will raise a glass of JD tonight in his memory.
RIP Pieter.

Sad news indeed.
He had many talents - IT wiz, a mean guitar player and motorbike tractor rider:-). He was a one of a kind - and thankfully so were his
t-shirts. Jack’o’clock has passed for the last time :-(. Going to miss him at BritSTocs. RIP Pieter.

I am so sad to hear this, for Pieter was a joy for me to be around (even if he did struggle with my English sometimes ;-)). And I remember his joy when I was able to give him some Jack Daniels stuff I had inherited. I'll never forget when my wife had her accident in Ireland, Pieter sent her flowers. He was just that kind of feller! My prayers are lifted for Karen and the rest of his family.

Oh no... such sad news.

Requiescat In Pace, Pieter.

Sincere condolences to Karen, his family and to all his many friends all over the world. Pieter touched so many lives reaching out through the ether, including this old soldier in far off American heartland.

Godspeed friend

RIP Pieter, such a sudden and unexpected loss.

It is such a sad loss of a 'full of life' guy, Generous, Fun, Wicked humour, and good T shirt dress sense,
We will miss you.
