My family and myself

Gerry Van Kooten retired in 2015 after 12 years as a Professor of Geology at Calvin College, Michigan. Gerry and Jan have returned to Alaska where they live on the Kenai Peninsula on the Moose River. They hope to spend time in Washington and Arizona during the winters. Gerry continues to work as an oil and gas exploration consultant for two Alaska Native corporations and plans to help out with Calvin College geology field courses as needed. Gerry and Jan have 2 daughters--Kara is a physical therapist in Anchorage, Alaska, and Crystal is an Assistant Professor of Writing and Rhetoric at Oakland University, Michigan, and we are proud of them both!
