8. Sterfdag: Maandag op 10 November 1947

Note: Taking the death notice as evidence for date of death and not the gravestone, mostly because the death notice which is signed on 19.11.1947 states that he died on Monday 10.11.1947. That date was a Monday (so that seems to confirm accuracy), while the 19th (the date on the gravestone) was a Wednesday.
