Sebastian de Visser

Sebastian de Visser, also known as Pan, passed away on September 24, 2021, at Wind River Hospice in Whitehorse, Yukon. He was born on May 26, 1941, in Veghel, The Netherlands. He emigrated to Canada in 1963 and spent the majority of his life in the Yukon. He was the eighth child of Sebastianus and Christine (Van Hout) de Visser and was predeceased by his parents, his sisters Hanny, Carla and Louise, his brother Gerard, and his son Peter. 

He is survived by his brother John, his sisters Maria, Thea, Christine and Nancky, his son Christoper, and numerous nieces and nephews.  Sebastian loved music and played guitar in a number of bands throughout the Yukon and Alaska.

He also loved tennis and badminton and could often be seen walking along the Yukon River trail with a racquet sticking out of his black bag. 

Thank you to the amazing people at Thomson Centre, Wind River and Yukon Home Care who cared for him over the past year and a half.

He will be missed by many.

    I met your dad at Dean’s Strings, a local music store. He would come by regularly and play guitar. On occasion he would help answer difficult questions posed by customers. A number of times he got me out of difficult situations. I used to see Sebastien at MacDonald’s where he stood out with his unique style of dress.
    I cannot hear Reinhardt Django without thinking of your dad, such a fine gentleman..
    May God rest his soul.
