I worked with Cor at Capital Packers , and I am very sad to hear of his
Passing, Cor was a great guy always upbeat, with a joke to tell, if he wasn’t
Telling jokes he would be teasing one of the office staff ladies,.
We both shared a passion for fishing and would often show photos of
Our recent catch, with a promise to go together some day .
I trust in Heaven your lines are always tight ..
Rest well my Friend

Occasionally, during one's life, a character enters your world. Larger than life, full of zest, and always ready for some fun.
For me, that person was Cor. I met and called on him at Lillydale. There was always something new and interesting to talk about, and a good fish story to embellish. His greeting to me was always " mag niet mopperen", which means "can't complain".
Whether it was business meetings, a round of golf, or a Lillydale fishing derby, Cor was a character in every sense, and though we had not seen each other for some years, I often thought of him, and the memories of him will last forever.
Rest well Cor.

Our condolences to Aria and family on the passing of Cor.

I have known Cor for many years and always enjoyed his company. Cor had his own perspective of looking at things in life and business, which at times were very refreshing. As a former Sailor, Cor spoke about his love for the water and anything that had to do with it. Cor was far to young to leave us, but the Dutch have a famous proverb:
"Van het concert des levens krijgt niemand een program", which means "In the concert of life, no one gets a program".
Rest well my friend.

I remember Cor as a fun and great Co-worker. He was always upbeat and would bring a smile to your face. Whether it was meeting an unsuspecting new salesman and crushing his hand with his powerful handshake to his antics with his colleagues he was a force to be reckoned with. I remember standing by the smokehouse and Henry coming by when he motioned for Henry to come over And getting him to “listen to the thermometer, because” , he said “I hate it when they talk back “I’ll miss you my friend.
