I am so saddened to have happened upon this news. Jan was a dear friend throughout high school at TJ. We remained in close contact through college and the first years after graduation, but lost touch of him when I moved overseas. I am now back in Denver and working on our 50th (+1) high school reunion, which led to an internet search and learning of his death. My deepest condolences to all his family - many of our classmates are going to be similarly heartsick when I share this news. His nickname was "Yipper" and he was a terrific all round athlete, particularly excelling in baseball. I have a wealth of fond memories, but mostly recall his sly smile & a devilish sense of humor...though never mean-spirited. He was very well liked and for years, former teammates/friends had hoped to locate him to re-establish contact. So very sorry for your loss and to only now having found out. I hope the intervening time has allowed all his family to grieve, yet also find joy in the remembrance of his gentle nature.
