Decease of dear late Bro. Ton Simon.

Dear Brothers,


It is our sad duty to inform you about the passing away of Bro. Ton Simons on April 17, 2018.

The text of the mourning card reads as follows:

"  Congregation of the Brothers of the Immaculate Conception of Mary

       ' Make me enter

         into Your place of rest and peace'

 With sadness we inform you that we had to say goodbye to our dear family member and faithful fellow brother




Antonius Theodorus

On December 29, 1937 he was born in Schiedam. He joined the FIC Brothers on August 15, 1959. On April 17, 2018 he died in ‘Residential Care Centre De Beyart’ in Maastricht.

Ton was a man who, as a religious who was living seriously, could also fully enjoy the nice earthly things. That made him a satisfied and sociable fellow brother and a dear family member.

At our vocational school he was trained as a painter. As such he worked in Maastricht and Amersfoort. He then spent seven years as a servant and invigilator in our juvenate in Miranda de Ebro in Spain. Back in De Beyart he was part of the team of guest brothers. Next to that he was also the accurate dispatcher of the publications of our working group prayer, 'Oriëntatie FIC' and 'Berichten Broeders Maastricht'.

In his community 'Overkant' he was a helpful and loyal fellow brother. He often took the opportunity to visit his family.

Two years ago he received the bad news that he was incurably ill. He endured this period with great acceptance. He was assisted by employees of De Beyart in a careful way and by visits from his family and fellow brothers. Yet unexpectedly he left us.

We say goodbye to Ton on Monday, April 23 in the Eucharistic celebration that will start at 14:00 pm. Afterwards the cremation will take place in a closed circle in Eijsden. In due course his ashes will be laid out at the FIC cemetery near the Anjoulaan in Maastricht.

On behalf of the FIC Congregation

and the 'Bernardus' community:

On behalf of the family:
