Jan Wilson Withrow, age 75 of Ocean Isle Beach, NC, passed away on September 14, 2020 at Myrtle Beach Manor. He was born on December 1, 1944 in Washington, PA to William and Carrie Withrow.
Jan was an avid, lifelong sports fan. He played baseball at West Virginia University where he graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Economics and a Master of Science in Safety Engineering. He honorably served his country and was proud to be a veteran of the United States Army.
