It is with deep regret and sorrow that I announce to you, the Internations community, of the passing away of a fellow Internations member and friend, René Kaak, on the evening of January 28, Protected content .
He was scheduled to leave for his home visit in the Netherlands on Sunday January 30, Protected content a few weeks, and sadly did not make it home.
Life is a gift - we shouldn't take it for granted. Life is also about giving as much as it is about receiving. René lived along this principal. He was a very kind and gentle person. Besides taking care of his family in the Netherlands, he also supported two more families in Sri Lanka through a social development project.
René lived and worked in over 10 different countries throughout his life, and has travelled around the globe. He was a father of three.
Please share his loss with everyone he might have known here in Seoul or anywhere else.
