Last updated 1/11/2023 at Noon

Family and friends lost Janard “Jan” Everett Allsman of Sisters on December 28, 2022.

Jan was born June 14, 1945, in Oakland, California, to parents Everett M. Allsman and Elsie A. Allsman. In his youth, Jan sang in the National Cathedral Boys Choir in Washington D.C. and graduated from Falls Church High School in the Virginia Suburbs. On his first day at Bluefield College, he met the love of his life, his future wife, Barboura (Barb).

Jan achieved his pilot’s license with multiple ratings and began his 33-year career with the Federal Aviation Administration as the host of Aviation Weather on PBS. He then served as an air traffic controller, procedures specialist, and supervisor at Washington National Airport. After a brief stint at the FAA headquarters, Jan finished his career at the Air Traffic System Command Center in Herndon, Virginia.

Upon their retirement, Jan and Barb relocated to Sisters to live out their dreams, building their welcoming home and traveling the country in their motorhome. Jan was generous and always quick to lend a hand; he participated in many projects in the community through his association with the Sisters Rodeo Association, Sno Cap Vista Homeowners Association, Sisters Folk Festival, and Sisters Habitat for Humanity.

Father to two, but “Dad” to many others, he is survived by his loving wife, Barboura; sons: Christopher (Terrebonne), Jonathan and wife Abra (Fairfax, Virginia); grandchildren: Claybourne, Paige, Jackson, Miranda, Aiden; sister Joyce and brother-in-law Larry Corn; sister-in-law Becky Wirt of Christiansburg, Virginia; and countless friends.

Celebrations of Jan’s life will be held in June in Sisters, and this spring in Fairfax, Virginia. Donations may be made in his name to Sisters Habitat for Humanity or Bend Partners In Care.
