Ben Zijlstra Print
Sad news reached me this weekend. Ben Zijlstra passed away on 29 June 2017. Ben was born 4 Feb 1956. He died way too young.
Ben was ill for a long time but remained positive till the end. Even while he was ill, he helped other users on the forum with their problems.

Sad news reached me this weekend. Ben Zijlstra passed away on 29 June 2017. Ben was born 4 Feb 1956. He died way too young. 
Ben was ill for a long time but remained positive till the end. Even while he was ill, he helped other users on the forum with their problems. His last post :

Perhaps we all should take an icecream to cool down. So much trouble in the world....


More than 1100 posts. Most posts were to help others. 
Ben made a lot of projects. Often with Theo a good friend of him. 
Many projects were shared on this forum or his own website. 

Ben was a bascom user of the first hour. he started with B8051 and gave many good ideas for improvements. Ben also beta tested bascom-AVR. 
I visited Ben years ago at his work place. He was very passionate about his work. Ben knew a lot about networks and electronics. A likable man. 

Even before i knew Ben was ill, i gave Ben the 'bascom ambassador recognition' . This because he promoted bascom in a great way. 

While Ben passed away, his projects remain for ever. I was lucky to get some of his hardware projects like a bascom-Rolex and the Weather Station. 

Ben leaves Intisar (his wife) and Nour (his son) behind. I wish them strength. 
I know many of you knew Ben. In case you want to send his relatives a letter : 

Wolvegastraat 65, 5036 AG 
Tilburg 
Netherlands 

Rest in peace Ben!
