John Herman Loret (Nov. 8, 1928–Aug. 12, 2011) lived a life of adventure, scientific exploration, and continuous curiosity. Throughout his life he loved learning and making it exciting for his innumerable students.
His love of science began early. He falsified his birth date in order to enlist in the Coast Guard where he served for three years, ending in 1949. While on Arctic duty, his ship achieved “farthest north” and then was trapped in the ice for an extended period. During this experience the ship circumnavigated Baffin Island- the first time that had been done.

When I received a recent call from the hospital at 4:00 a.m. that Janice Seyfried had passed away, I was so saddened, even though the prognosis of a recovery wasn’t good. Janice was diagnosed with cancer of the pancreas in June of 2010; however, that didn’t prevent her from giving of herself in so many ways. Up until six weeks before she passed, she continued to be active in the Wantagh Kiwanis Club, as well as with her duties as the public relations chairperson for the New York State District of Kiwanis International. The Wantagh Chamber of Commerce had planned a dinner in her honor to present Janice with their “Citizen of the Year” award, and was to be held on a date just weeks after she passed. Earlier this year, NYS Assemblyman David McDonough awarded Janice a “Woman of Distinction 2010” award for the 19th Assembly District.
