Law, Gavin  
Gavin Law November 8, 1978 – February 14, 2016 Gavin Law, 37, passed away suddenly on February 14,2016 in his Park City home, surrounded by his wife and 2 daughters. In June of 2015 Gavin was diagnosed with a rare brain tumor that was benign. A neurosurgeon advised it be removed to prevent further complications. However, the surgery did not go as planned and as a result, Gavin suffered many unanticipated and severe complications. He endured three months in the hospital and was then released to recover at home with major life-altering challenges which left him disabled and led to his unexpected and untimely death. Gavin was born November 8th,1978 in Redwood City, California to Clarence William Law, Jr. and Sue Ann Peet. Gavin married Kim Van Veldhuizen in Park City and had two daughters, Bella and Khloe. Gavin lived in Los Altos until the age of 8. His father was a Delta pilot, which led them to move to Park City. Gavin attended Park City High School and then attended ACS Cobham International School in Surrey, Greater London. He then continued his education at Florida State. He also attended and graduated from San Diego Golf Academy. He worked at many golf courses in the Park City and Heber area, and for the last seven and a half years as a private golf instructor and a stay-at-home father. Gavin was full of energy, personality and talents and had a heart of gold. He had the most contagious smile, which opened the door to many friends wherever he was. Gavin's passion was golf! He adored his wife Kim and his two daughters were the twinkle of his eye! Gavin is survived by his wife, Kim Van Veldhuizen ; daughters Bella, 8, and Khloe, 6; father Bill Law and stepmom Kerstin Luker; stepsister Michelle McReavy; mother Sue Zetteler and stepfather Marnix Zetteler; stepsisters Jessica Munafo and Sabine Zetteler; and his 99-year-old grandmother Louise Ramsdell Law.

There will be a fundraiser for his family, a live DJ, pizza, raffles and a silent auction, and of course dancing for the park city local Gavin, otherwise known as the white usher. Special thanks to Dustin Stein and Mustang, Steven Maxwell and Maxwell's, and Sammy's Bistro, who made this event possible. Also to all the family and friends for donations for the event.

Rosenbloom, Marie Lucille (Galavitz)  
Marie Rosenbloom January 12, 1928 – June 21, 2016 Marie Lucille Rosenbloom (née Galavitz), passed away on June 21, 2016 from complications related to a hip injury. Marie was born on January 12, 1928 at the start of the Great Depression, the eldest daughter of Julius and Cecilia Galavitz, whose parents emigrated from Lithuania, and what is now Poland. She grew up in Simpson, Pennsylvania where her father was a coal miner in nearby Carbondale and her mother a seamstress, and was poor enough that she picked up coal from the railroad tracks to help keep the family shack warm. Marie graduated Salutatorian from her high school despite having the highest GPA average, because they reportedly would not allow a female to graduate ahead of a male student. She was awarded a scholarship to Mansfield State Teachers College and worked her way through school by waitressing in the Borscht Belt, finally settling into a teaching job in New Jersey where she met her husband Leonard Rosenbloom in the early 1950s; they later divorced in 1986. She continued to teach until becoming a certified addictions counselor in the 1980s and then continued that work both formally and informally well into her eighties, helping to establish various AA meetings in Park City during her time here. Marie called herself the Polish Bulldog because of her tenacity and stubbornness when pursuing a cause and anyone who knew her understood that she bucked convention and was afraid of no one; once she selected a cause -- or it selected her, as she liked to say -- nothing was going to stop her from pursuing her goal. Special thanks go out to the late Bob Wells and Dr. Robert Barnett, without whom she would not have survived as long as she did. Marie is survived by her two sons, David and Daniel; their wives, Maria and Susan; and her three beloved grandchildren, Alison, Elizabeth and Daniel, all of whom appear to have inherited her gene for tenacity.

Griffin, Charles Thomas  
Charles Thomas Griffin May 8, 1937 – June 9, 2016 Tom was born on May 8, 1937 in Springfield, Ohio, son of Dr. Charles Griffin and his second wife Emmeline Thomas Griffin. "Doc" Griffin was a much-respected veterinarian, one of the first vets to be graduated from Ohio State University, and who served honorably during WWI in the Veterinary Corps. Tom led a charmed childhood, the darling of his elder half-siblings: George, who came home from WWII full of tales of war and heroes to wow a young boy; sister Bonnie, a "Rosie the Riveter " who worked in the war factories, made fudge and took him downtown; and eldest sister Rosemarie, still surviving at almost 99 years of age. Tom's first job was delivering the Springfield afternoon newspaper as a young boy on his bike. Later he would find his career in the big time newspaper world – at a time when newspapers were big. First at the Dayton (Ohio) Daily News, then editor of the New Carlyle Sun, also Ohio. After joining the St. Petersburg Times in Florida in the late 1960s he quickly rose through the ranks, becoming advertising director of the esteemed "last remaining major independent newspaper" in the United States. Moving on to Little Rock, where he gave the Arkansas Gazette a shot in the arm, then to Colorado with a small group of weeklies as president of Griffin Communications. Even after retiring to Arizona, newspaper ink still in his blood, he wound down his career at the Arizona Republic and Scottsdale Progress. Most recently, in Utah, Tom stayed busy as a school bus driver for Wasatch County and later for Park City Day School. Word is that the kids thought he was a bit eccentric, but very cool. He often had a game or a quiz to see who would win the candy bar. Tom had three children from his first marriage of 16 years. They all received the greatest gift he could bestow – that of superior intellects. He supported them well and generously from childhood through their college graduations. Kathryn, who became a math professor at Urbana University in Ohio, suffered an untimely death at the age of only 54; Charles is general manager of numerous automobile enterprises, and Louisa is mother and mentor to three young girls, all high achievers in school and sports. Tom's children and their seven children will remember him with pride. Tom met his second wife, Judith Judd, at the St. Petersburg Times; they were together 44 years. Their odyssey took them across the country from Florida to Arkansas to Colorado, then Arizona and Utah. He was there for her in 1987 when doctors wrongly estimated she had less than six months to live. And in spite of several years traveling separate paths, Judith was there for Tom, with love and care, at his death. They moved to Park City in 2005; Judith currently resides in Midway. The Griffin family appreciates the care and kindness of the many medical institutions and staffers who assisted Tom in his last months. Probst Family Funerals has been especially caring and professional. A graveside memorial will be held at 11 a.m. on Friday, June 17, 2016 at the Midway Cemetery. Condolences may be shared online at ProbstFamilyFunerals.com.

Peterson, Jan Dorny  
Jan Dorny Peterson May 9, 1939 – May 16, 2016 Jan was born on May 9, 1939 to Willis K. Peterson and Elizabeth Dorny Peterson in Salt Lake City, Utah. He died at home on May 16, 2016, at the age of 77, of complications of metastatic prostate cancer. He attended East High School and graduated from the University of Utah with a degree in Marketing and Advertising and served his country in the Utah National Guard in the '60s. He married Amanda Creer in 1964. They had two children, Andrea Terwillegar (Matthew) and Abbey Lee Cordery (Joseph), and two grandchildren, Zackary Robert Terwillegar and Lucy Amanda Terwillegar. He is survived by his family and two brothers, W. Gary Peterson (Merna) and Tim Dorny Peterson. Jan was an avid outdoor sportsman whose skills were instilled in him at an early age by his father. An avid skier, golfer, pheasant hunter and fly fisherman, he worked his way through college as a butcher at Dan's Market in his Salt Lake City neighborhood and his father's shop in Wolf's Sporting Goods store in downtown Salt Lake City. He spent as much time as possible skiing and racing on the slopes of the Wasatch Mountains, golfing and fishing the rivers in Utah. Upon graduation from college, he tried his luck in San Francisco, and soon returned to Utah to begin an advertising career at Gillham Advertising. He and his family moved to Park City in 1971 to open a Wolf's ski shop at the base of Treasure Mountain Resort (now known as Park City Mountain Resort). In 1980, with partners, he opened JANS MOUNTAIN OUTFITTERS and began his career as a premier retailer in the outdoor sporting goods industry, his life-long dream. His charming personality and extensive knowledge of skiing and fly fishing helped him to build relationships among the best suppliers in the country. He built a team of extraordinary employees who over the years have served the customers of JANS with grace and style. JANS began as a small ski shop and has grown to include mountain biking, road biking, fly fishing, guiding services and attire and now enjoys 14 store locations in the Park City, Utah and Beaver Creek, Colorado areas. In addition to his entrepreneurial skills, he gave back to his community in many ways. He wanted all kids to have an opportunity to participate in sports and so he co-founded the JANS WINTER WELCOME, a fundraiser that gives money to young aspiring athletes and programs. He co-founded the Park City Handicapped Sports Association in 1987 (now known as the National Ability Center), an organization that helps kids with disabilities; was nominated to the Park City Ski Team Hall of Fame; and was the recipient of the Chamber of Commerce "Spirit of Hospitality Award" in 2012. He was a member of the Ski Utah Board of Directors, the only lifetime member of the Bulkley River Lodge in British Columbia, a member of the Rotary Club of Park City, founding member of the Board of Directors of the Park City Ski Team, and instilled an ethic of participation and contribution to many other organizations and causes in and around Park City. He was a loving father, husband and mentor. His employees and industry friends affectionately referred to him as "The Coach." He was a true inspiration to his community and everyone around him. His warmth and humor will be missed by many. He has always said that fly fishing was his religion and has asked that his ashes be spread along his five favorite rivers: the Madison River in Montana; the Bulkley River in BC; and the Green River, Provo River and Upper Weber River in Utah. A celebration of his life will be held at JANS, 1600 Park Ave. in Park City, on Saturday and Sunday, June 18 and 19, 2016. Instead of flowers, donations to Youth Winter Sports Alliance would be welcomed. P.O. Box 681698, Park City UT 84068 or YSAParkCity.org.
