KEYZER, Jacques (Jack) C.L.

October 15, 1926 – January 27, 2011.

It is with the deepest regret and extreme sadness that we announce the passing of Jack Keyzer, beloved husband to Kay, grand-father, father and dear friend. Born and raised in Brussels, Belgium, Jack and his family emmigrated to South Africa when he was 13 years old. Jack was a Rotarian for 50 years, and after emmigrating to Canada in 1985, he joined the Victorian Rotary Club, and subsequently became the Commodore of the International Yachting Fellowship of Rotarians.

At Jack’s request there will be no funeral or formal service, and flowers are greatfully declined. A get-together in Jack’s memory will be arranged in due course.

Every time I read the often excellent obits in the Times Colonist of Victoria, British Columbia, I wonder if this is going to take off in the UK. See how many unfuneral-ed deaths there are this week, and what people intend to do to commemorate their dead person.
