Ton Jaspers (“Swiebertje”)
Sadly Ton passed away on December 9th after a very short illness. Ton will be sadly missed by his long time best friend and loving wife Conny (Steennis) and their daughter Anne Lotte and so many other family and friends. I believe he will forever be remembered by so many in the wider Wayfarer family as a very passionate man, a technically astute man and a big bear of a man who loved sailing and Wayfaring in particular.
Ton was particularly generous in spirit and practicality, lending not just his knowledge and expertise to others but also welcoming visitors and lending his lovely boat W10445 Swiebertje to many who travelled to the Netherlands from abroad to participate in international events held there.
Ton Jaspers our fellow Wayfarer sailor and friend may you rest in peace.
With much respect and kind regard,
Monica Schaefer – W11152 Lakka
