Jan van Thiel RIP

We are shocked and saddened to learn of the sudden death of Jan van Thiel.


Jan was one of the leading lights of the Perfect Day Tent in The Netherlands and a good friend to all who knew him at home and overseas. His was a familiar face at European and UK Conventions and we will sorely miss him.

Social media has many fitting tributes to Jan, which we recommend to our readers.

Jan's daughter posted the below message on Facebook...

To all of Jan's friends:

A few people wondered why Jan didn't respond anymore [on Facebook]. They suspected something was wrong and it is.


It is with great sadness that I have to inform you in this, unfortunately impersonal way that my father Jan van Thiel passed away suddenly last Wednesday July 7th.

The cremation ceremony will take place in a private circle.

We miss him so much.
