July 22, 1954 – High River, Alberta
July 28, 2015 – Calgary, Alberta

Jan Korsgaard passed away on July 28, 2015 peacefully in Calgary, AB at the age of 61.

Jan’s parents immigrated from Denmark to Canada in 1952 and settled in Okotoks, Alberta. Jan was born two years later in High River, AB in 1954. After 10 years in Okotoks, they moved to Calgary in 1965 where Jan resided until his death. Jan has a large extended family in Denmark whom he visited and kept in contact with.

Jan had a passion for welding and excelled and achieved numerous qualifications in his trade. He was a welder most of his life and retired in 2013. Jan loved cooking but barbequing was his forte. He also enjoyed golfing, skiing and spending time with his cats. People gravitated to Jan’s sense of humor and he could always make people laugh.

Jan is survived by his two brothers and their families; Steen and Bev, of Airdrie, Alberta and Keith, Tracy and Brennan, of Calgary, Alberta. He was predeceased by his parents Aage and Liss Korsgaard, of Calgary, AB.
