In Memoriam! Ronny de Ruijter

June 6th, 2016

Today we have sad news. We have been informed that Ronny de Ruijter, CPT operator at BMNed, has passed away unexpectedly at the age of only 56

We remember Ronny as a very friendly and good humored guy who took his job very seriously. He had a very positive attitude and every time we spoke or met, it was always uplifting and in good harmony. 

Most of you do not know Ronny personally, but last year he did something very unique by which he will be remembered by. He married and for the transport to the ceremony he used a very special vehicle, namely a 200 kN fully ballasted CPT crawler. Quite a spectacle!

The Gouda-Geo team wishes his wife, his children, grandchildren and his colleagues at BMNed all the strength to deal with this tremendous loss.
