I am going to miss my father, so much. We held a special bond that can never be replaced. I am going to miss our daily phones calls and the long talks we used to have. There were no parting words for he and I because all was said that needed to be said. He passed along funny stories, useless information and a ton on knowledge. I'm gonna miss you dad. I love you.... Till we meet again!

Jennifer Vugts Richards

I was honoured to get to know John over the past 4 years. I saw him at least twice a day when he would come for a tea. He had an amazing sense of humor that always made me laugh. He helped me through my Mums passing and was always quick with a hug. He will be sorely missed at Tim Hortons in Colborne by each and everyone of us. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his daughters and son.

Hallo Familie Vugts, Van harte gecondoleerd met het overlijden van mijn neef John. Als ik zijn foto zie, dan zie ik oom Piet voor me. Een sterke gelijkenis. Jullie emigreerden naar Canada in het jaar dat ik werd geboren. Ik ben het petekind van oom Piet en tante Drika. Toen ik in 1978 met Ans van Laarhoven trouwde zijn oom Piet en tante Drika nog op onze bruiloft geweest. Wij wensen de familie veel sterkte met het verwerken van dit grote verlies. Hartelijke groeten van Henk van ome Toon en van zijn vrouw Ans.

Sorry for the loss of your father, father in law grandfather, brother and uncle. My husband Jan and I were in Canada for the 50e wedding marriage from Ans and Bob. Sorry we did not visit you. We were with you 10 years ago and went with you to see all the apple trees. Rest in peace

Beste familie Vugts, Van harte gecondoleerd met het overlijden van jullie vader, opa, broer en oom. Op bijgaande foto zie ik een echte 'Vugts'; een kleinzoon van Peerke Vugts, ons aller 'stamvader'. Als ik me goed herinner, is hij, samen met zijn vrouw, een keer in Nederland op bezoek geweest en zijn we met de hele familie samengekomen voor een reünie. Ongetwijfeld gaan jullie hem enorm missen. Van harte wensen wij jullie allen heel veel sterkte met dit verlies. Warme groet vanuit Esch
