    We are very saddened to hear of Jan’s passing. We enjoyed Jan when he came to visit us at Newbury Auto Parts. I will always remember his kindness when he brought me some green beads on St. Patrick’s Day after telling him that I did not have anything green to wear in celebration. He later showed up with the beads! He will be greatly missed. May you rest in peace, Jan.
