The Kansas Highway Patrol confirmed that 73-year-old Jerry D. Slykhuis and his 70-year-old wife Jacqueline Jane Slykhuis, both of Cedar Falls, were killed Monday in Seward County, Kansas, when a truck didn’t stop at a stop sign and hit their car.
Two men in the truck were not injured. Troopers say everyone involved was wearing a seat belt. Slykhuis coached high school sports for more than four decades, including 36 years at Cedar Falls High. He retired in 2008.
