Duppen passed away in his home town of Kropswolde at the age of 58. Only recently, poor health forced Koos Duppen to resign his duties at the University. On Wednesday 18 May 2011, he was decorated as Officer in the Order of Orange-Nassau on account of his services to the University and society.
Koos Duppen loved our University and was deeply committed to educationand research, to the staff and the students. He put his heart and soulinto his work, and will be sorely missed. We will remember him withgreat respect.
