Obituary for Peter Jan Vogelzang

Vogelzang; Peter Jan
September 10, 1935 – November 29, 2018

After a lengthy illness, it is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Peter Jan Vogelzang of Seeley’s Bay, on November 29, 2018 in his 84th year at Providence Continuing Care Centre.
Loving husband to the late Sylvia (McNutt) for 53 years, he has returned to his place in heaven to be reunited with her. He will be greatly missed by his sons, John (Sandra), Peter (Lori), Robert (Karen) and David. Cherished Opa to Calista Vogelzang, Marika Vogelzang, Grace Vogelzang, Josh and Austin Murray. Peter will be missed by Paul (Terri) Almeida and remembered as Opa to Ethan and Chayse Almeida.
He will be remembered as a friend and travelling companion to his nephew Don and Susan Sutton and their son, Geoffrey Sutton, and will also miss the friendship of Martha Khalil.
Peter was predeceased by his parents Rintje Vogelzang and Elizabeth Alida Ringeling, sisters Reinalda Maria van der Sman, Agatha Vogelzang and Margareta Christina Kost. He is survived by his brother Jan Harmen Vogelzang of The Netherlands.

Peter emigrated to Canada in 1956, and after employment with Empire Life Insurance Company, purchased a small insurance brokerage in Seeley’s Bay in 1973. Given Peter’s entrepreneurial nature, the business grew and became known as Vogelzang & Associates Insurance Brokers Ltd., and after a merger, Thomson Jemmett Vogelzang. For over 30 years he served his customers, and the community, with the utmost honesty and integrity, principles which were evident in both his personal and business relationships. In his own unassuming fashion, he was philanthropic and caring to those in need.

Heartfelt thanks to the caring physicians, nurses and support staff at staff at Providence Continuing Care Centre for their excellent and compassionate care. Special thanks to Sandy Michaud and Maria Falcao for their devotion and support shown to Peter throughout his illness.

The family will receive friends at the Scotland Funeral Home, 27 Main Street, Elgin on Saturday December 1, 2018 from 2:00-4:00pm and 7:00-9:00 pm. Funeral Service in the Kingston Christian Fellowship Church at 2647 Hwy 38, Kingston on Sunday December 2, 2018 at 12:00 pm . A light lunch will be served after the service, with interment to be held at Olivet Cemetery, Hwy 32 Seeley’s Bay. As expressions of sympathy, donations may be made to University Hospitals Kingston Foundation (Providence Continuing Care Centre, Palliative Care Unit), or Kingston Christian Fellowship, in Peter’s memory.
