Decease of Geert Verstraete, founder Drukkerij Verstraete

21 August 2019

We are sad to announce the passing of Geert Verstraete, the founder of Drukkerij Verstraete (now Verstraete IML).
Geert suffered from health issues for the last couple of years. He passed away on Monday August 19th at the age of 81, lovingly surrounded by his closest family.

His perseverance, commitment and passion for his work, made him dedicated to Verstraete IML and the labeling business until a very late age. He paved the foundations for what Verstraete IML is today.

We are thankful for all Geert has done for the company. He will be remembered as a righteous, ambitious, dedicated and warm father figure.

No flowers nor wreaths

Geert Verstraete was an advocate for the Kom op Tegen Kanker (Fight against Cancer) foundation, as he believed strongly in its operations, the importance of continuous investigation for new treatments and medication, and the impact the organization makes supporting patients.

As a regular contributor to this good cause, it would make Geert happy to know that any sign of condolence attributes to this charity.
Therefore, a dedicated bank account number within the Kom op Tegen Kanker foundation was created. Anyone who wishes to do so, can donate to the foundation on the bank account number BE03 4886 6666 6684, using the reference 140212285.
