In memoriam Willem van Nieuvenhuyzen

Willem van Nieuvenhuyzen

We are sorry to say that last week at the 8th of March our founder member and director Willem van Nieuvenhuyzen passed away from his cancer disease.

The funeral service took place among family and friends last weekend. According to his wife Jacobijn Willem has been busy until his last day with organizing his issues and they have been able to celebrate his 70th Birthday and their 45th Wedding anniversary.

We all lost a friend, a companion, a supervisor and an exhaustless operator for the dissemination of knowledge and for networking people sharing his interests in the fields of lecithin. He was a charismatic, pleasant and warmhearted person. We will miss him.
