Willem L. Begemann

Pittsford: Willem L. Begemann passed away on April 16, 2024, at the age of 87. He was preceded in death by his parents, Louis and Charlotte Begemann, as well as his siblings Wilma and Charles.

He is survived by his devoted and loving wife of 62 years, Jeane Begemann, his loving children, Spencer (Kathleen) Begemann and Michael (Michele) Begemann and his cherished grandchildren in the United States: Anthony, Grace, Luke, and Owen Begemann. Additionally, he is survived by two daughters Christa and Jolanda, six grandchildren, sixteen great-grandchildren and one cousin Anthony (Tone) Begemann in The Netherlands. He also leaves behind brothers-in-law Ferry Kooijmans, Hart Kooymans and Wayne Callahan, nieces, nephews, and numerous dear friends.

Willem was born and educated in Indonesia and The Netherlands. He served in the Air Force in The Netherlands before immigrating to the United States in 1961. He dedicated over 55 years of his life to work and now his hardworking, loving hands are finally at rest.

An enthusiast of World Cup Soccer, English Soccer, and USA Soccer, Willem himself was an avid soccer player and served as a goalie in the Dutch Soccer League in Rochester, NY. He also passionately coached the Chili Youth Soccer teams and enjoyed watching ice hockey and the Olympics. Willem and Jeane also loved to take cruise vacations to the Caribbean islands.

Special thanks and gratitude to the Comfort Care Team at Unit 4400 of Rochester General Hospital including Dr. Derek Clar, Abby and especially Samantha.
