I grew up living beside Jan, Jack and Jeff. We spent hours together playing and sleeping out in their tent. Jan was a great guy and a good friend. Was so sorry to hear he had passed. So many memories of us three going skinny dipping. What times those were.

I'm one of the 3 Jan's that lived in East Sparta. We spent a lot of time together , Jan and his brother Jack. I bought my first car from Jan and Jack. It was a 1936 Dodge. Sorry to hear about Jan. he always contacted me about our class reunions.
We spent a lot of our younger years together. hopefully I'll stop down to see Jeff.
