Justus Anton Deelder 1944-2019

The night mayor went too early or too late. We didn't see it coming.

The city of Rotterdam lost its soul. Jules was an icon, a poet and writer. A reciter who didn't need to mince his words. He was a musician, a bon vivant and a 'Spartaan' but above all was 'Rotterdammer'. That was almost not the case though. I am sure the city annexed my village Overschie because Jules was born there three years later.

Rest in peace.
Local voices should be treasured. It seems that Mr. Deelder's was by many.
