Lieve Tante Monique, neven, nichten en kinderen, We zijn dankbaar voor de mooie herinneringen aan ome Anton en het warme ontvangst bij jullie als wij Canada bezochten met ons gezin. Het varen op de rivier met de kano's, de typische humor en de wijsheid over het leven dat met ons en onze kinderen is gedeeld. We missen ome Anton, maar we koesteren de mooie herinneringen en ervaringen. Frans & Marlies Lisa, Steven, Chantal

Monique and Family, In the summer of ‘75 Tony took me on his crew for the summer. I was 16. Although I was probably not a very helpful guy on his construction crew, he was a very patient and helpful employer. I learned a lot and he made me feel valuable. Really sorry for your loss.

When I arrived in St. Marys on the farm at age 21, Tony was building one of many barns and sheds . He explained to me that they expected coffee twice a day and with a big grin, added “baking would be appreciated”. We rose to the challenge and he showed us all, the value of stopping work , to sort out the little troubles with a joke or two thrown in. In Guatemala, on Tony’s build team, we watched him cut through language barriers and win over skeptics with a big smile and his gentle manner. So many lives that Tony has touched. I am grateful to have known him. I can only wish you Monique, and family, much strength .

Beste Monique en familie, Ik vernam het overlijden van Anton via een van mijn broers die actief is op Facebook. Ik wens jullie heel veel sterkte toe. Ik heb hem maar een paar keer ontmoet, bij mijn ouders nog ( jouw oom gerard en tante jenne). Maar ik herinner me hem als een wijs en aangenaam man. En als ik het korte portret lees bij het overlijdensbericht, wordt ook nog duidelijk hoe sociaal ingesteld hij wel was. Velen zullen hem missen. Jullie natuurlijk het meest. Ik hoop dat alle mooie herinneringen helpen om zijn raad op te volgen: al snel te kunnen terugkijken met een dankbare glimlach. Marianne Thyssen ( België)

Alfons Weersink posted a condolence
Dear Monique and family, Tony was a wonderful man. We got to know each other well during the several summers that I worked for him. At first, it was his physical strength and ability as a carpenter that I admired. Then, it was his silly sense of humour- “let’s find a radio station with a better weather forecast”. But ultimately what defined Tony was his kindness, especially to those less fortunate. He was so generous with his time to help others in St Marys and places far away like Haiti. Keep smiling Tony.

Lieve Monique, kinderen, kleinkinderen en vrienden van Anton, Mijn vrouw Selvia en ik leven met jullie mee na het horen van deze boodschap over het overlijden van Anton. Wat een pracht man is Anton altijd geweest als ik de beschrijving lees. Velen zullen die herinnering nog vele jaren in hun gedachten vasthouden. Jammer dat wij zelf Anton maar zo weinig gekend hebben door de grote afstand naar Canada. Wij condoleren jullie met jullie verlies in de wetenschap dat zijn geest en ziel nu bij God, zijn hemelse Vader is en dat hij daarmee zijn rust gevonden heeft. Geweldig te horen dat God hem 30 jaar reservetijd heeft gegeven. Zo leef ik ook al 23 jaar in reservetijd die God mij tot nu al gegeven heeft. Heel veel sterkte in de komende tijd bij het verwerken van jullie verlies. Donald en Selvia Cerpentier

Dear Monique and family, We are so sorry to hear of Tony’s passing. He was such a dear man and cared so deeply about helping others. A memory I will always hold dear to my heart was when we visited an orphanage in Haiti. We were touring the facility and a little child came running into Tony’s arms and clung on so tightly. The tears immediately came to Tony’s eyes and it was at that moment I realized what a big and kind heart Tony truly had. He will be so dearly missed by his Hope for Haiti Family. We will all try to Keep Smiling just for you. Rob and Sharon Staffen
