It breaks my heart to announce the passing of our dear past president, Keith Van Rosendaal on Thursday, June 25th of congestive heart failure while in the company of his family.
Keith and Elizabeth are members of the Mills Chapter of SUP where he served as Chapter President in 2016. The next year he was elected to the SUP National Executive Council and was 2018 National President. It was only last September at the Logan Encampment that he retired from the Board but not from SUP.
Keith “volunteered” to plan and chair the Salt Lake City National Encampment planned for 2021 (now rescheduled for 2022). With his sweet wife, Elizabeth, he visited and spoke at nearly every SUP chapter except Las Vegas, Mesa and Philadelphia.
We are so grateful for the memories of working, traveling, counseling, lecturing and celebrating with a man who loved every moment he spent serving others. During his tenure, SUP made great strides in getting our organization into the public eye through the media, Website development, our online presence, and the nationally recognized Pioneer Magazine publication.
He found and shared joy with every meeting. On our last visit, he told us he viewed his passing as a sacred time to be cherished. We extend our thoughts and prayers to Elizabeth and their dear family.Recommend0 recommendationsPublished in
