Can I apply for Dutch Citizenship?

I'm a child of a Dutch immigrant to the USA. Is it possible for my father, who naturalized as a child to the USA at the age of 10, to renew his NL passport?

My father immigrated to the US from The Netherlands in 1955 at the age of 3.
He because a naturalized US citizen at the age of 10. He is still in possession of his Dutch passport.
I've dug around on a few Dutch websites and have not been able to find a clear answer whether or not someone in his situation would be able to renew their Dutch passport.
If he is able to do so, it's stated pretty clearly online that my brother and I, both his children, would be able to also apply to become a Dutch National.
I have a friend who worked in the French Embassy in DC who believes that this process should be pretty easy for my father to do - if renewing Dutch documents is similar to the French process.
Does anyone have experience with a situation like this, dealing with NL or other EU expired passports from the US?
