Obituary Jan van Beckum
We were shocked listing to the sad news that our former president Jan van Beckum passed away on Friday, July 31.
Jan was involved with the Ronde van Midden Nederland, via UWTC de Volharding, for many years before he became president of it from 2006 to 2012. In the 15 years that John was active for it, he has worked steadily to improve the organisation and the race for audiences and sponsors. Among others with giving the impetus to bring the RvMN to an international level.
Three years ago, Jan has handed over the gavel but in the background he remained committed to the fortunes of “his Round”. Jan was the icon of the RvMN and all of Utrecht and its surroundings knew him. Jan reached the age of 67.
Jan, thank you for all those wonderful years together and for your enthusiasm, your support and great efforts to organise and expand our RvMN. We will miss him.
Our thoughts are with his wife and his children.
On behalf of the board and volunteers, Rob Moor, president.
