PIJPER, Antonie Hermanus 'Anton' 'Tony' Pijper Obituary | Print |

PIJPER, Antonie Hermanus 'Anton' 'Tony' -

Pijper_AntonAge 85, passed away peacefully Friday, 19 December 2014 at the Ian Anderson House in Oakville.

He leaves his loving wife of 60 years, Maria (Kop) Pijper; his sons David Pijper and Robert Pijper (Margaret); his daughter Marguerite Plaatjes (Ernest); his eight grandchildren Mark (Shantel), Lauren, Timothy, Stephen, Christopher, Allison, Sean (Skye), and Meaghan, and his great-grandson Haiden.

Predeceased by his sons baby John Peter and Thomas Anthony, and his daughter-in-law Patricia.

We remember fondly and celebrate the long and productive life of this gentle, wise, and christian man. Born 14 February 1929 into a large family on a cold day in Holland. Never letting a permanent limp due to a childhood injury slow him down, he trained as an instrument maker, married his darling Rie in 1954, and then emigrated to Canada and worked hard at a long and successful career at Univac as a computer technician in Ottawa and then Mississauga.

Known by many as "Mr. Fixit", who could repair almost anything, from a car to a clock. A man of wisdom and intelligence and meticulous attention to detail, and a source of sound advice whether in church or as a father or friend.

A generous man who loved to smile and laugh, with talents and gifts too many to count: fisherman, craftsman, photographer, traveller, sailor, reader, appreciator of good music, teacher, mentor, and friend.

We will miss you Anton, even as we celebrate your life as a "good and faithful servant" and rejoice in the knowledge of your new and eternal life in paradise: no more limping now.

A celebration of life service will be held on Tuesday, December 23rd at 1:30 p.m. at Clearview Christian Reformed Church, 2300 Sheridan Garden Drive, Oakville.

In lieu of flowers, the family asks that you consider supporting the wonderful work of the people at the "Ian Anderson House" with a donation.
