Jan (Spyke) Spykerman is survived by his five children and their spouses/partners: Janice and Joel Grace, Cheryll and Rick Lewis, Mark and Debbie Spykerman, Denise Smith and Kevin Farenbaugh, and Rose and Eric Burns. He has been blessed with eleven grandchildren: Patrick Haughey, Kalin Shanklin, Gavin Grace, Craig and Kim Lewis, Eric and Keri Lewis, Neal Lewis, Saul and Caitlin Spykerman, Rhiannon and Michael Shinkle, Jennifer and David Pham, Vanessa and Bronson Purdy, and Francesca Smith. He has eleven great-grandchildren: Megan Lewis, Kaitlyn Lewis, Eva Lewis, Alec Lewis, John Paul Pham, Tanner Shinkle, Tatym Shinkle, Elliette Spykerman, Jackson Spykerman, Jillian Spykerman, and Noah Purdy. He will also be missed by his sister and brother-in-law Virginia and Larry Joy and his nieces Kristin, Shannon, and Missy and their families. He was preceded in death by his wife of over 60 years, Barbara Jean Spykerman.

Spyke’s passion was his family and he showed his love with his actions, his example and his commitment. His favorite family function by far was the annual family Thanksgiving get together in Yosemite, a tradition he started in 1971 and carried on for decades. He was very proud of his career of 39 years at the Gas Company. He especially loved the relationships he had with his co-workers. His hobby was taking care of his yard, especially his roses.
