I just learned today of Dr. Jamrich's passing. What an extraordinary man! I am an employee of Mayo Clinic in Florida and had the privilege of spending precious time with Dr. Jamrich often during or after his playing the piano. I don't remember the exact number of hours he had played but I know it was in the thousands. In fact, he would tell me that he held the record for the most hours played. We became fast friends. He was very personable and a great joy to be around. His smiling face and bow tie will be missed. Rest in Peace my friend!

I was an undergrad at NMU from 1968-72. In March 1971, Van Antwerp dorm hockey team was playing the TKEs at the Palestra for the campus championship. I wrote a hand written letter to Dr. Jamrich and invited him to the game. He showed up, with the trademark bow tie, and stayed the entire game. He sent me a handwritten thank you note saying that he enjoyed the game. RIP Dr. Jamrich.
