Marimus "Dutch" Rovers

May 4, 1949 - April 11, 2014

MORRISONVILLE — CHAZY - Marinus "Dutch" Rovers, 64, died peacefully on April 11, 2014, with his family by his side.

He was born in Altmonte, Ontario on May 4, 1949, the son of Stephen and Pauline (Van de Aa) Rovers. Dutch, with his wife Joyce, owned Rovers Farm, Inc. Initially working with his parents and siblings, and continuing the legacy with his son, Lance.

Dutch's life revolved around two very important things, his family and farming. He accepted people at face value, took time to listen to the needs of others, and was never afraid to share his point of view, whether it related to the latest farming innovations or national and local politics. He was a fair-minded, even-tempered and loyal friend. With his wife, Dutch did a fair amount of traveling and wherever they went, he would explore the local agriculture. He began his life on a tractor (riding well before he could walk) and carried on that tradition with his grandchildren, nurturing a love of the land.

Part of Dutch's nature included community involvement and volunteerism. To that end, he served as a Member of the Farm Bureau, a Board Member of the Office of Real Property Services and Chairman of the Soil and Water District. He was also a Chazy Councilman and a Member of the Champlain Knights of Columbus.

He is predeceased by his parents Stephen and Pauline Rovers; and a sister, Pauline.

Dutch is survived by his wife Joyce (Robbins); his daughter, Robin and her husband Vineet Gauri; his son, Lance and wife Danielle; and four precious grandchildren, Dayton and Kaydence Rovers and Rohan and Rajeev Gauri. He is also survived by his brothers Chris and his wife Annette and Adrian and his wife Stephanie and sisters, Adriana and Elizabeth; as well as nieces, Jory and Kelsey Robbins, Leslie Rovers and her husband Claudio, Aprile, Julia, Laura, and Elizabeth Rovers; and nephews Joseph Robbins and Brad Rovers and his wife Becky.
