Remmelt Hummelen ImageREMMELT HUMMELEN On March 4, 2019, Remmelt Hummelen passed from this life at 79 years of age. He will continue to watch over his treasures: his wife, Kathleen, and his son, Brendan. Remmelt was the son of Menno and Louisa Hummelen (both deceased), brother of Richard (Hawaii), Lee Dermody (Hamilton), and Jim (deceased). Remmelt was a man of loyalty and courage, with a passion for fairness and justice, and communities creating their vision together and benefiting equally. He acted on his beliefs effectively and tirelessly, locally, nationally and internationally, with Kathleen often working side by side with him on these shared goals and concerns. And when Brendan was born, he immediately joined the team. Remmelt touched many lives. He was deeply loved and will be greatly missed.

A funeral service for Remmelt Hummelen will be held at St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church , 73 Simcoe St., Toronto, on Saturday, March 16 at 3:00 p.m. Visitation will be at 2:00 p.m. in the sanctuary. Following the service, everyone is invited to join the family for a reception in Remmelt’s honour in the Great Hall of the church to share memories, tears and laughter.
