Dr. Jan Tatkhin


CONWAY — Dr. Jan Tatkhin died unexpectedly from complications of diabetes April 10, 2017. He was born in Rwanda in 1963. After earning his MD, he practiced medicine there for several years prior to emigrating in 1993 to United States, where he earned a masters degree in public health and a PhD in epidemiology from Johns Hopkins University. After graduation, he worked in Baltimore, Md.

When he later discovered the Mount Washington Valley, he immediately fell in love with the area and soon made it his home. While in the valley, he participated in local running races and enjoyed the White Mountain Miler fun runs whenever he could. Learning to ski was a challenge (having never seen snow before he came) but as with so many other new activities — he tackled it with gusto and enjoyed the challenge. He was active in the arts, and a frequent attendee of concerts by the Mountain Top Community Orchestra and Mountain Aire Strings. He loved playing his guitar and singing folk songs with his friends. He enjoyed coaching, substitute teaching and a variety of other jobs in which he gave back to the valley.

He frequently attended both the Jackson Community Church and the Bartlett Congregational Church, where he met many friends. At the time of his death he was living in an international boarding house in North Conway where he befriended foreign students and helped them adjust to the new environment here.

He leaves behind several brothers and sisters — some of whom are still in Rwanda, while others are in Canada, Belgium, England and other countries.

There will be a joint memorial service for Jan with the ministers of both the Jackson and Bartlett Churches on July 31, 2017 at 4 p.m. in the Jackson Community Church for all who were touched by his life. Officiants will be  Rev. Gail Doktor and  Rev. Norma Brettell. Any donations may be sent to a charity of your choice.
