We remember Mr. Vanderperk as a good man who always looked for the best in a situation and people. He cared deeply for his wife, children and grand children. He was always the first to arrive and become involved in a party. Spending time with him was a treat, especially when he would begin to talk about the past.

We cherish his memory in our hearts and miss his genuine good nature.

It is with great sadness that I have informed the membership of the Niagara Military Vehicle Association (NMVA) of the passing of Gysbertus Vanderperk. Gysbertus, known to us as Bert, was the father of longtime NMVA member John Vanderperk. Bert was a veteran of the Dutch Army and served in Indonesia as a peacekeeper. He was a crew member of a Fox Armored Car. Bert attended many parades and other functions participated in by the NMVA. He often rode shotgun in one of our NMVA vehicles while his son John drove and his favorite ride was the Dutch Army DAF YA 126 weapons carrier. Bert often visited the NMVA bunch at the barn and we much enjoyed our conversations with him. He valued veterans and appreciated the goals of the NMVA. Several weeks ago, NMVA member Darren Werner and I were allowed the privilege of visiting with Bert at his home. We had a wonderful time talking about his amazing life and in particular his experiences while serving with the Dutch Army in Indonesia. I will always cherish the smile on his face when we arrived at his home for our visit. Bert was a true gentleman and one of the nicest people I have met. He will be missed by those of us at the barn that had the honor of knowing him. On behalf of myself and the NMVA, I extend sincere condolences to John VanderPerk and all of his family in this time of sorrow.
