Jackobus Zijdel (Jack Zydel)

July 4, 1944 – December 9, 2014

It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Jack Zydel, a strong man with a heart of gold. Jack was predeceased by his parents, son Peter and granddaughter Sheena. He is survived by his partner and best friend Mary Kirkpatrick; daughters Jacquiline and Annie; granddaughters Jewellianna, Stayzia, Amore and Mija with whom he shared his childlike spirit. Jack is also survived by his brothers Ruud, John and twin brother Wim; also sisters Lydia, Joke and Gerda.

Although the thought of you no longer here in body saddens us deeply, your adventurous spirit, kind heart and humorous nature will live on through all who had the pleasure of knowing you. You will be truly missed.

A celebration of life will be held at a later date.
