    So very saddened by this news! What a gentle loving and caring Individual he was! It was his time to go and the folks on the other side will be blessed to have him in their company forever! RIP dear friend and may God Bless you through all eternity!

    To Honey and the Vandeceveye Family,
    So sorry to here about Julian. I am blessed to have been able to get to know Julian and the other St. Joseph parishioners when I would sub as organist. Julian would come to Mass with Honey before choir practice. I heard from my mom, Berta (Sinnaeve) Maki that Julian was very active at St Joseph church in Perkins – helping out all the time. My mom (Berta) and all the Cyriel & Margaretta Sinnaeve Family will miss Julian. “Honey” we will be praying for you & the family!

    I’m so sorry to hear this about a great man. I’ll miss him at Church. My deepest condolences to Honey and 5he rest of the family.
    May he rest in the peace of the Lord.
    Go Bless you all

    I am truly sorry to hear about Mr Vandecaveye’s passing. He was an excellent teacher, one whom I had tremendous respect for and the only one to ever send me to the principal’s office 🙂 It was deserved as myself and another student were celebrating as we did well on a test and the rest of the class didn’t. Praying you find comfort in your time of loss.

    Dear Aunt Honey,

    We were saddened to learn of Uncle Julian’s passing and we’re very sorry for your loss.

    We were hoping to visit you and Uncle Julian this summer. We’d still love to see you, but now we are not sure when, as we’ll need to wait until lodging is available along the way.

    We’ve been preparing to sell Martha’s house and came across many of her photos and memories, including your wedding invitation. She saved so many cards, letters and photos.

    We’re praying for you and your family, and Uncle Julian. We’ll surely miss Him! May he rest in peace.

    It is with great sadness we learn of the death of Julian. We have never forget how kind and full of attention he was for us many years ago in 1988. We came for France to meet the lovely family who had welcomed our daughter Anne for a year, in WFU program.
    We thank you Julian for all the lovely memories we keep from our stay in Perkins and we will keep in our hearts a very friendly memory of you.

    So sorry to hear the news of his passing! I graduated in 1967 & he was my teacher then! He never seemed to age! Such a good, caring & upstanding man! He will truly be missed! Darlene Anderson Jensen

    I am so sorry about Julian. It was very nice seeing him, whether at the post office or town hall. He always had a big smile and a hello. I never did remind him of the time when he was teaching a class and I (kind of) put my head down and fell asleep. He pitched a blackboard eraser at my desk. Yup, I did wakeup!! He never even got ticked off at me. I always wanted to ask if he remembered that, but never did. He was a very sweet person and the town will miss him very much. Take care. Thinking of you and hope you are o.k.

    So grateful that I saw him a year or two ago at my Uncle Rene’s funeral… I hadn’t seen him in years and he came up and started talking to Pauline and I and knew who we both were… It was good to reminisce Sad to hear of him passing though… My thoughts and prayers are with you Honey…

    We will be mourning the loss of Julian at our Township meetings. He was such a wealth of knowledge and truly a huge presence in our community! Honey, please know we will be praying for you and your family. May Julian rest in the peace of Christ!

    So sad to hear. I still talk about what a great teacher he was. Will miss him.
    He did do much for our schools and community. He always made time to talk and listen.

    Mr. Vandecaveye was my teacher in 1965, class advisor, and basketball coach. Fast forward to 1990, Mary was in Bay College taking classes, one night she was having problems with her algebra and I told her that one of my teachers may be able to help her. She had never met Mr. Vandecaveye, but she called him for some for some help. For the next hour he helped her with the problem she was having. After that, whenever she ran into Mr. Vandecaveye at the Post Office or Town Hall she always gave him a big Hug! Dick and Mary Krouth P.S. Mr. Vandecaveye graduated with my sister, Elizabeth Krouth Bailey in 1948. Whenever we ran into one another, he would always ask how my sister Liz was doing. He will be sorely missed. Our deepest sympathy.
