Young Tom, with parents Art and Jean,
& grandparents Rose and Gustave Jans


Tom in Leavitt Meadows in the Sierra Mountains getting ready to go back about 4-5 hours into the mountains for some camping and fishing. The date on the back of the photo is August, 1966. Art had this photograph on his wall for many years, so it is very faded. The mountains in the background are where Tom's ashes are laid to rest.
 




Tom and his father camping in the Sierras, probably in late 70's.


Jean Jans passed away in 2007. Later that year a close family friend carried the ashes of both Art and Jean to the Sierra near Tom's final resting place.
