In loving memory ~
Erling Jepsen passed away peacefully at home on October 25th, 2022 aged 88. He will be sadly missed by his wife Jessie, family in Denmark and Singapore and his many friends.
His passion for sailing and adventure took him from Denmark to many countries in the world, often living aboard sailboats that he built, including his pride and joy the "Zigeuner". He finally settled down, moored in Richmond BC, and married Jessie onboard the "Zigeuner" in 1994. After they retired to Nanaimo he enjoyed sailing, using his wood-working skills and many artistic talents. Until recently he walked his favourite neighbourhood dog to the marina daily and loved his cats.
Special thanks to Dr. K. Houghton and palliative support workers who helped Jessie in fulfilling his wish to be cared for at home. There are no plans for a service.
