Jan A. Double
Age 74, of McCandless Twp., passed away on Monday, January 3, 2022. Born January 18, 1947, son of the late David and Mary (Neglio) Double. Beloved husband of Patricia (Kane) Double, whom he married on November 13, 1971; loving father of Philip (Destin), Todd (Valarie), and Peter (Nicole) Double; Grampy of Isabella, Hudson, Lyn, and Ryan; brother of Pat (Darla) Double, and Joyce (Paul) Wickles.
Jan Double was born practically perfect in every way on January 18, 1947 to Mary (Neglio) and David Double. He had an older brother, Pat, and a younger sister, Joyce. He graduated from Perry High School in 1964. Shortly thereafter he was drafted and served in the Vietnam War. On June 19, 1967 his squad came under heavy ambush. In the ensuing action he helped evacuate a downed helicopter of wounded soldiers while under heavy fire saving several lives. For these actions he was decorated with a Bronze Star with Valor.
Returning home he began a 42 year long career in data processing and Telecommunications at Mellon Bank, starting in the print pool and ending his career as assistant vice-president. He also met his wife, Patricia, and started a family. They had three boys (Philip, Todd, Peter). He would go on to coach all of them in soccer. He loved all of the Pittsburgh sports teams (even the Pirates), and the soccer team Manchester United.
He was adored by all four of his grandchildren (Isabella, Hudson, Lyn, Ryan). Known for his quick wit and dad jokes, it was not uncommon to hear laughter surrounding him. He was virtually unbeatable in trivial pursuit and prideful over his mastery of useless knowledge. He will be greatly missed.
Family and friends are welcome on Thursday from 2-4, 6-8 pm at Devlin Funeral Home, 806 Perry Hwy, North Hills. A Blessing Service will be held Friday at the funeral home at 11 am.
