Friend of many and. long time moderator

Jan died this morning around 2am after a short but intense battle against leukemia

I will forever wish that I could have gone to him to say goodbye.

Totsiens my vriend

Ag jirre nee..

Jan was one the first members of this forum, a dear friend, beloved husband and father to a young daughter.  A friend with who i did a few bike trips.  But also a private person.  I enjoyed reading his columns in the Rapport then phoning him to joke and chat.  He never took himself seriously.  He was intelligent and witty, - we always joked and laugh.  I didnt even know he had leukemia. We always joked about his heart. 

Nelia, you are in my family and my thoughts.  This is so sad..

Jan was interessante mens.................... maar bowenal a man for all occassions.
Hy kon enigiets doen van Mount Nelson tot die neighborhood pub, tot 'n shebeen.
Een van my most favorite people to have a one on one drink with. Dit het baie minder gebeur vandat ek 6 jaar gelede Hermanus toe getrek het.

'n Man met intellek, insig en 'n vermoŽ om altyd jou 'n ander "angle"/sienswyse op 'n storie te gee.
Dink sy 2weeklikse rubriek in Rapport het dit weerspieŽl.

'n Ervare man met baie verhale om te vertel.
'n Man met 'n unieke Jan - Taljaard-humorsin


Sal nooit vergeet hoe ons Jan amper verloor het vroeg 2011,toe hy baie groot hart omleinings operasie ondergaan het nie.
Hy het net herstel toe hy die  "donkie", sy geliefde KLR opgestart het en na die Vioolsdrif National Bash gery het....
Ek het daai naweek interessante gesprekke oor die lewe en dood met hom gehad.....
Jan was nie 'n loudmouth nie. Maar wanneer hy gepraat het, het mens geluister....

Hy het na sy laatlammetjie dogter verwys as Die Kind. Sy het hom oneindiglike plesier en trots gegee.
Jan se Facebook posts oor hoe hulle 2 musiek(altyd rock) geluister het in die kar as hy haar skool toe geneem oggende  was legendaries.  Die feit dat "Die Kind" so kunssinnige was en oor vir musiek gehad het, hethom oneindiglik plesier verskaf!


Jan....... Jy was a man amongst men....... I salute you!

Ek gaan vanaand ietsie vat en jou salute my vriend!
It was worth my time to know you. You added value.

Mooi woorde Bossie.....die trane rol..

Hy kon ook kragwoorde so mooi gebruik, veral as hy praat oor mense of organisasies wat hy verafsku.  Ai ek gaan hom mis.  Bossie, hy het vir Rudi K verskriklik snaaks gevind. Seker maar daai droe humor wat hulle deel.  Ai ai ai..

Kom ons post fotos van die man hier. Ek weet hulle soek vir sy gedenkdiens.

Ek @ so paar manne

Ek kan spesifieke episode onthou waar jy in Kaap kom vakansie hou het klompie jare gelede .................. Jy het vir Maretha en kinders in Tulbagh by haar broer gelos en vir Cyril gaan optel en by Jan gaan kuier.....
Dink jy weet waarvan ek praat  :lol8:

Dit het in 'n 24 uur bender ontaard :lol8:

Week daarna het die ou vertel hoe julle hom besig gehou het en nie einde gehad het nie........ en hoe hy as "hartlyer" moeg was  :P
MAAR dit was vir hom 'n befokte kuier wat hy heimlik nodig gehad het.
Hy het dit baie geniet, trust me on that ;)

Verseker :lol8:
Dit vat spesiale mens soos Jan om vir Rudi snaaks te vind :lol8:


Fokkit Hein, ons het darem great memories oor Jan!
