Jippes;

Jippes, Albertus “Al”, age 81, passed away at Queens General Hospital, Liverpool, on Friday, February 20th, 2015 with his family by his side.

Born in Assen, Holland on February 2, 1934 to the late Jacob and Dina (Lanting) Jippes,

Al immigrated to Canada when he was nineteen arriving at Pier 21 in Halifax onboard the S.S. Groote Beer on March 26, 1953. Al served thirty years as a “stoker” in the Royal Canadian Navy, retiring as a Chief Petty Officer in 1986.  He moved to his beloved “Goose Hills” and became a lobster fisherman for many years, before retiring for a second time.

Al met Bonnie (Bonita Burgess) at a dance in Halifax during the fall of 1956 and they were married on July 12, 1958 in Port Mouton. Al and Bonnie have two daughters, Rika (Brian) Bolivar, of Liverpool, Nova Scotia and Belinda (Michael) Doyle, of Kingston, Ontario; five grandchildren, Jillian Payton, Whitney Payton, Allen Wolfe, Justin Wolfe, Christian Wilkins; two great-grandchildren, Kaden and Lincoln Roy. Al also leaves behind one brother, Bennie; four sisters, Rika Trip, Marge (Jan) Steenbergen, Alie Blaauw and Jopie (Roel) Huizing and their families in Holland.

Cremation has taken place under the direction of Chandlers’ Funeral Home, Liverpool. At Al’s request, there will be no visitation or service. No flowers by request. Donations may be made to the Soldier On Fund (cfmws.com). Online condolences may be made to the family at www.chandlersfuneral.com

I met Al on the Iroquois in 1980. He was good to us junior guys and treated us more than fair. I hope he knew that. I invite you to check out HMCS Iroquois past and current members on Facebook. There (over the next few weeks) you’ll see stories and the like from former shipmates of his. They are always nice to read and you’ll get to see good things and stories that you may not have known about him. Truly a great man.

My condoleances for the whole family to the death of our cousin Bertus. I still remember him, but that was a long time ago. He visited the Netherlands again somewhere in the fifties. I was a child then.
I remember him as a funny man full of life and having a big sense of humor.
I was called after the same grandfather. (Our father was his younger brother Geert.)
All the best and warm wishes to our Canadian family branch.
