- My Family and I want to thank you all for your kindness and support. We are so grateful for everyone’s condolences, uplifting words and offers of assistance. In my dad‘s honor, we would love to celebrate his life and achievements with the public. The Great Falls Public Schools has graciously offered to host a memorial at the Great Falls High School Davidson Auditorium on Thursday, June 17 at 4 PM. A reception to celebrate his life will follow in the GFHS Commons (Hub). Dad was a champion of education, and so we have decided to establish a scholarship in his memory. Any funds remaining from his GoFundMe page will go to the scholarship. In Lieu of flowers, we ask to send memorial gifts to the Great Falls Public School Foundation or through the GoFundMe page. Jan’s obituary can be found through https://gb774.app.goo.gl/mQXyW

- From the bottom of our hearts, thank you all for reaching out and gracefully helping my mom, my sister and I. Our hearts are full as we brush the tears from our red sore eyes. We wanted to let you know April (daddy’s little girl) was finally able to depart after some international traveling departure issues. She is on her way to Great Falls with open arms and love surrounding her. We will let everyone know further details later, but please take some time this week to reach out to your loved ones. Jan would be so grateful to see his life bring a smile and joy for others. ❤️❤️❤️ Angie, April, and Robert

On Monday, my dad, a former teacher, principal and superintendent from Great Falls Montana had a serious health issue that has resulted him to be in the ICU.
He was part of the education system for over 35 years, and he still serves as a public servant for education as a school board member for the Great Falls education system and superintendent of Vaughn School. His tragic health issue is unsure, but we are hoping for a miracle. He needs all the help and love.
Please take a moment to let your loved ones know how much they mean to you, and we will send updates. He loved his family and the Montana community. Anything is helpful, and we (his children and wife) are grateful for any support/sharing.
Love you daddy ❤️
