Desease Brother Gerhard Theodor Dicks FIC.

Dear Brothers,

It is our sad duty to inform you about the passing away of Brother Gerhard Dicks on November 16, 2020.

The text of the mourning card reads as follows:

"     Congregation of the Brothers of the Immaculate Conception of Mary

 "God is inclined to us.

Endless is his compassion.

He is faithful to us

throughout our lives."

Psalm 100




We inform you, with sadness in our heart, the passing away of 

our family member and fellow brother



He saw the light of day on 7 Januari 1931 in Arnhem.

On 15 August 1952, he made his vows in our Congregation.

Gerhard returned to his Heavenly Father on 16 November 2020

in the residential care centre De Beyart in Maastricht


Gerhard was a good craftsman as a painter, but he has also proven himself an esteemed artist.

Initially, he was working as a painter in De Beyart, in Amersfoort and in Sint Michielsgestel.

Afterwards, he joined the community in Almere, helping his new fellow townsmen.

He resided a long time, until his passing away, at De Beyart, where he created paintings and 

sculptures in his own workshop. His last years were not easy, due to physical distress. 

May he rest in peace now.


We say goodbye to him, in private, during the celebration in the chapel of De Beyart on Friday, 

November 20, starting at 14.30 pm. Then we put him to rest at our cemetery near the Anjoulaan in Maastricht.


On behalf of the family:

J. Dicks, Black Alicante 26, 6851 VK Huissen


On behalf of the FIC Congregation and the Bernardus community:

Bro. Wim Luiten, Superior, Brusselsestraat 38, 6211 PG Maastricht    "

May he rest in the peace of the Lord.
