    Rudy and I are so sorry to hear of the sudden passing of cousin Jay. We are saddened we did not get together as we spoke with Jay previously. Rudy remembers getting together with Jay and Scott to play baseball and other activities in Beaver Dam. These are pleasant memories. Jay, we will cheer the Packers on to victory for you. GO PACKERS!!!!!


  12. Barbara Regling Jordanger condolence:

    I grew up with Jay in Beaver Dam. We remained friends for years and kept in contact. Jay was one of our classmates who hosted many annual reunions at Swan City Park. I will miss talking to him.
    We were both members of Grace Presbyterian Church and were confirmed together. One summer we went to Camp Onaway on an island in the Waupaca Chain of Lakes. It was great fun. Jay loved his family and especially enjoyed those annual trips to Green Bay to cheer on the Packers.
    My love and prayers are with you.


  13. Lloyd & Carol Lathrop condolence:

    Our sympathy to Jay’s family. We are fellow classmates of Jays. Always was a pleasure to see and talk with him at class reunions.


  14. Betty Henning (Perreten) Class of '58 BDHS condolence:

    Jay was a classmate. His family was everything to him…which was obvious in every conversation we shared. He was one of the kindest, gentle and genuine people I ever met. He made a sincere effort to stay in touch with as many classmates as possible. Many of us looked forward to phone or computer chats regularly. He will be truly missed. Our sympathy and prayers are with you all.
