Blogger Gerard Vlemmings, 67, whose The Presurfer blog ran for more than 16 years, passed away on February 25, just a few weeks after being diagnosed with lung cancer.

The Presurfer was on of my daily stops, providing me with an eclectic mix of entertainment and information.  I, and many others who rejoiced in Gerard's blog, now face days that are no as bright.  He will be missed.

My deepest sympathy goes out to his family and his many friends.


  1. The Presurfer was a prime source for my own blog. I'll sure miss seeing it turn up in my news reader every day.

  2. It's true. I'm his niece. My father and Gerard are brothers. Today was his funeral.
    Gerard lived for his blogs. Everytime I saw him he always spoke of The Presurfer with such passion. He loved all the followers.
    Thank you for posting this on your site.

    Greetings, Yvonne Schellekens-Vlemmings

    1. Hi, I'm sorry to hear that your uncle passed away. For many years I followed his blog, he had very interesting subjects. The computer I used at the time broke down. I lost contact with the blog. This week and by chance, I reviewed the blog, and heard about this sad news. After 3 years, my condolences to the family.

  3. I kept checking, hoping that he would return to The Presurfer. Alas, today I did a search and learned of his passing. My condolences to his family and friends. His blog was a highlight of each day.

  4. I am late finding this information out. I used to email him many years ago about his links and posts, which I really enjoyed.
