Jakob “Jake” de Boer
July 12, 1934 – September 09, 2019
On September 9, 2019, in his 85th year, Jake went home to be with the Lord surrounded by his family. Survived by his beloved wife of 46 years, Mieke and his sister Nel de Boer. Loving father of Jakob (Bess de Boer) and Marieke (Kieran Murphy). Proud Opa of Hannah, Harry, Finlay and Oliver. He will be greatly missed by his extended family and friends in Canada, Holland and South Africa. He will be fondly remembered around the world for his formidable personality and charisma as a world-renowned television producer and a man of unshakable faith.
