The Guest Book is expired.
Jan was born January 27, 1945 in Cleveland, OH where he resided until the family moved to Tucson, AZ in 1960 and the vistas he had admired in the Saturday Western Movies came alive. In 1965, Jan enlisted in the United States Air Force and was a weather observer stationed at North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) at Cheyenne Mountain, CO until his honorable discharge in 1969. Jan worked for KYSN AM radio and the Colorado Springs Sun, then for His, Hers, and Ours FM radio station in San Diego. He attended San Diego City College until returning to Colorado Springs in 1974 where his primary focus was his family and raising his two sons. In the early 1980's he founded Paladin Productions creating computer newsletters and graphics, and political commentary.
Jan is survived by his wife of 46 years, Mary Frances Moorhouse; sons: Paul Moorhouse of Baltimore, MD, and Jason (Thenderlyn) Moorhouse; granddaughters: Alexa (Tanner) Plant and Mary I. Moorhouse; and great grandson, Quinton Plant all of Colorado Springs, CO; brothers Jeff (Fran) Moorhouse of Hemet, CA and Brian (Eileen) Moorhouse of Pittsburgh, PA; sisters: Mary C.

In death, Jan provided the gift of sight to two Colorado residents through donation of his corneas in hopes the recipients might see the beauty surrounding them.
