BRAND Anton (Tom)


Beloved brother, husband, father, and grand-father. He was born in the Netherlands, the oldest of 11 children. He moved to Thailand in 1950 to work for Diethelm Ltd., eventually becoming the manager of Shipping and Travel in Bangkok. In 1975 he started a new adventure, moving his family to B.C., and lived for 35 years in South Surrey. He loved the outdoors, and through the years he hiked, rode horses, canoed, and camped all over the province. In his younger years he was an avid runner and sportsman. He traveled the globe, had a great interest in history, and was known as a voracious reader. Throughout his life he was active in many clubs and committees, often in a steering capacity. He will be missed by his wife of 55 years, Henny, his children Ingrid (Doug), Robert, and Roland (Maria), his grand-children Aidan and George, as well as his surviving 5 brothers & 4 sisters, and many nephews and nieces.

Friends and colleagues are invited to attend a Celebration of his Life at the Pacific Inn, 1160 King George Hwy, South Surrey, 2-6pm on Sat, Sept 25th. In lieu of flowers please donate to a favourite charity.
