A resident of Vermont for more than 30 years, Jan and his wife moved to Amesbury ten years ago. He enjoyed their close proximity to the ocean and visited the shores regularly.

Tonderys and wife Lindsay of Wilmington, DE. His grandchildren, Nicholas, Megan, Lucy and Eloise, were his shining stars. He loved to be called their PopPop. He also leaves four brothers, Gregory and Mark of Worcester, Mass., Terence of West Roxbury, Mass., and Peter of Raynham, Mass., and a sister, Megan Bearce of Brockton, Mass., along with several nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by his brother, Edward.
