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 metastatic prostate cancer. He attended East High School and 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), 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 Wolfs 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 and golfing and fishing the rivers in Utah. On graduation from college, he tried his luck in San Francisco, CA and soon returned to Utah to begin an advertising career at Gillham Advertising. He and his family moved to Park City, Utah in 1971 to open a Wolf's ski shop at the base of Treasure Mountain Resort (now known as Park City Ski Area). 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. 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 so 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 that helps kids with disabilities, was nominated to the Park City Hall of Fame, recipient of the Chamber of Commerce "Spirit of Hospitality Award in 2012. He was a member of the Ski Utah Board of Directors, Only Lifetime member of the Bulkley River Lodge in British Columbia, member 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 5 favorite rivers, The Madison River in Montana, the Bulkley River in BC, the Green River, Provo River, and Upper Weber Rivers in Utah. A Celebration of his Life will be held at JANS , 1600 Park Avenue, Park City, UT on Saturday and Sunday June 18 & 19, 2016. Come as you are. Instead of flowers, donations to Youth Winter Sports Alliance would be welcomed. P.O. Box 681698, Park City UT 84068 or ysaparkcity.org.

Pinder, Robert John "Bob"  
Robert "Bob" John Pinder February 27, 1932 – May 13, 2016 Our free-spirited, giving and loving husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather and best friend passed away on May 13, 2016 as an incident of age. Dad was born February 27, 1932 in Bellingham, Washington, to John M. Buxton and Melba Drake, and was later raised by his stepfather Leonard Pinder. His grandparents, "Mimi" and Clarence Drake, also played an important role in his life. Dad attended and graduated from East High School and the University of Utah. He also served as an officer in the Navy ROTC. He married his sweetheart, Virginia Nelson, on February 5, 1956. Together they had four children and spent 60 years in a very loving and spirited marriage. Our family moved from Salt Lake City to Park City 44 years ago. Dad was first and foremost an oil man and cattle rancher. He was also a very successful and independent businessman, who was involved in many different businesses throughout his life. He owned oil drilling and production companies; trucking and oil service companies; coal and precious metal mining companies; and numerous other ventures. He loved to "roll the dice!" His business dealings put him in contact with very high profile people including John Wayne, who was Dad's partner in several gold mines in Central Idaho. Dad was an excellent pilot who would fly just about anywhere to service an oil rig, or to check a mining operation, even if it meant landing on dirt roads. He fought fires in Idaho and Montana during the summer months starting at the age of 15. In his youth he was an avid hunter, fly fisherman, and loved skiing in Park City. He was a golf and tennis enthusiast. He thought that a hammer and duct tape could fix any mechanical or plumbing problem. We had many memorable summer trips as a family to Lake Powell, Balboa Island in California, and Mexico. We also loved to spend time together visiting our grandparents and family in Cedar City, Utah. Dad was very unique and will be greatly missed by all of us. He was a gentle man and a gentleman with a heart full of loving kindness. Dad is survived by his wife, Virginia Pinder; son, John Pinder; daughter, Jenny Pinder Dudleston; daughter from a previous marriage, Pamela P. Britt and 2 grandsons; brothers-in-law, James Nelson (Linda), and Douglas Graham; sister-in-law, Beverly Joseph; grandchildren Ragan Koran, Taylor Pinder, Jordann Pinder, Nelson C. Pinder, Cody R. Dudleston, and David J. "D.J." Dudleston; one great -granddaughter, Lexi Koran; plus many nieces, nephews, and cousins. He is preceded in death by his parents, John (Betty) Buxton, and Melba (Leonard) Pinder; son, Nelson L. Pinder; daughter, Lynda P. Young; daughter, Lori Pinder; sons-in-law, Donald E. Young and David Dudleston; grandson-in-law, James Koran; sister Jill P. Graham; brother-in-law, Keith Joseph; grandparents; and many aunts, uncles, and cousins – I'm sure there was a great reunion! Rest in Peace… We will love you always! We deeply appreciate the sympathy and support that has already been extended. The family invites all who wish to share thoughts and memories of Bob to do so at www.olpinhoopes.com. Funeral Services will be held on Saturday, May 21 at 11 a.m. at the Park City Community Church, 4501 N. Highway 224 in Park City, with a visitation starting at 10 a.m. After a luncheon at the church, family interment will follow at the Pinder Cemetery located on the family ranch in Duchesne, Utah, where Dad will rest in the beautiful outdoors he loved so much. Services are in the care of Olpin-Hoopes Funeral Home, Heber City, Utah.
