We have no words for the sorrow we feel for the loss of this great man. Admired by many, Respected by all, and loved by everyone who knew him. Coach had a great life and lived it well. He married the girl of his dreams and what a wonderful couple you both made . Had a son (Jaybo) and raised him to be a MAN. What more could a father ask. Prayers go out to all of you at this time but I must say I am a better man for knowing him. God Bless You All.

I’m still in shock. Loretta and me send our prayers and deepest sympathy to you Joanne, Jay and family. I never forgot this memory, Jan got my son Eddie two outfits when he was born. I always said I wanted to meet Jay and do something for him – Never Did – also tell Jay how considerate and what a great dad. God Bless.

Joanne and family, so sorry to hear about the loss of Jan, Jan was a nice person to be around and a great basketball coach. It will be odd not to see you guys together. May prayers be with you and your family.The only negative thing that I can say about Jan is that he was a BROWNS fan.May the lord be with you at these sad times.

I am saddened with the news of Jan’s passing. He lived his life with a big personality and a strong sense of loyalty to his friends and community. He represented the town like no one else. I remember fondly the sports stories he shared. Love to Joanne, Jay, family members and endearing coworkers at Powhatan Elementary.

So sorry to hear of Jan’s passing. I have such great memories of him at River HS during my days coaching in Woodsfield in the 70s and early 80s. He was one of the funniest guys I ever met and I always looked forward to seeing him. Haven’t seen him in many years but my guess he left a wonderful family and a great many friends with a ton of memories.
