I am so sorry to hear this news. I only had very occasional contact with your Dad over the years but when I visted him back in 1971/1972 in Gersau, we had a terrific time. Your Dad had a big personality.
Coert if you are ever considering a trip around Vancouver please give me a call. I would love to meet up with you. My contact information:
1906-699 Cardero St
Canada V6G 3H7
Also, my daughter Clare (age 28) lives in Brooklyn NY.
All the best Coert.
