    We are the young family that bought the house from Hanspeter. We just found out and we wish to express how saddened we are for this loss. Our son, Jacob had been waiting to go out flying with Hanspeter, as he had left one of his planes behind for Jacob when we moved in. We remember the day when we looked at the house, Hanspeter spent an hour with our son, showing him all his planes and sharing stories. We actually purchased a plane at the beginning of May as he was anticipating the new hobby and hanging out with Hanspeter. We are sorry we did not know him longer or better.

    Our prayers and thoughts go out to Wendy, Brian and all his friends.

    Warm Regards,

    Ken, Kara and Jacob

    Hanspeter passing was a real shock to me; we worked together since before 2003. We have been business partners for the past few years, but even more, we were good friends. I have been talking to him every day or two for years now, it has left a hole in my life and I miss him.

    Hanspeter was always optimistic and happy, he enjoyed life with a passion whether it was flying or working. His passion about gliders was really contagious.

    My heart goes out to Brian, Wendy and his relatives back in Switzerland.

      I just learned of Hanspeter’s passing…. I’m truly saddened to hear about this news. I met Hanspeter from a cold call one day…. I’m a real estate agent and it seemed my timing of my call one day was good for Hanspeter… He invited me to his house for a home evaluation and said that he was going to Europe for a period of time but when he would return, we would do business together. He shook my hand and said he was a man of his word. We seemed to hit it off immediately. Of course on his return from Europe he called me up and we planned for the selling of the family home. Sadly I find it rare to meet someone with such integrity, honesty and good character as Hanspeter Keller. We quickly sold his house (on the first day of listing in fact) and this good news made Hanspeter very happy. We celebrated with a nice glass of Red wine and toasted to the future. My condolences are to Wendy and Brian. I’m sure you will always carry with you warm memories of your husband and dad…. He was a good man indeed.

    Brenda and I were surprised and saddened to hear of Hanspeter passing. I knew Hanspeter for many years going back to Network Systems days when he was working in Switzerland. I also worked with Hanspeter when he moved to Canada to replace me as the Canadian Country Manager. Many, many good and funny stories to tell of those times.
    He was a good man and a wonderful friend and will be missed.

    We were so sorry to hear of Hanspeter’s passing. We heard from him when Inez Miller passed away. We were unaware that he had a health problem.
    Hanspeter worked with Mahlon at Network Systems Corp. We will always remember him as a friend. The family will remember him as a Loved One. May he rest in peace.

    This is so very sad. I knew him from “the good old days” when he was selling CNT equipment to RBC. He was pationate about EVERYTHING.
    It didn’t matter if it was computers, food, planes – he ejoyed life to the fullest.
    Even as the years rolled by, he always kept in touch. A very special person.
