Obituary of Rolf Jan Visser

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Rolf on March 6, 2021 at the Ottawa General Hospital.  Beloved husband of Maria (nee van Dam).  Loving father to Han (Kathy) and Werner (predeceased).  Cherished grandfather to Justin (Setare), Matthew (Callie), Taylor (Max) and Meghan (Rob).  Dear great grandfather to little Beau Daniel (Matthew & Callie).  Predeceased by his brother Arie (Miep), Rolf will be missed by his loving sister Margot (Bertie) and his sister-in-law Bep in the Netherlands (predeceased by his sisters-in-law Corrie and Nettie).  Rolf will also be dearly missed by his extended Cameron family and many great friends in the Netherlands and Ottawa.    Rolf Jan Visser was born in Doetinchem, Netherlands to the late Hubertus and Frieda.  Rolf and his lovely young wife Ria bravely immigrated to Canada in 1967 with their two young sons.  Rolf was a successful businessman for many years having started his own company Rovis Service.  He made many good friends at work and in the community over the years.   We are very proud of his achievements in Canada and dedication to his family.  We will greatly miss his terrific sense of humour.  A special thanks is extended to Dr. Rousseau and staff at 5 Northwest, Ottawa General Hospital.  Due to Covid-19 health concerns a private service and interment at Pinecrest Cemetery will be held at a later date.
