Historic Bridge Named for John Van de Kamp

Hundreds gather to commemorate “a neighborhood hero.”

Pasadena, California has honored our former Chairman of the Board, member of one of our founding families and distinguished citizen, John Van de Kamp, who passed away last spring.

During a public ceremony June 24th, the newly restored 103-year-old bridge two miles south of the Rose Bowl and not far from John’s longtime home was renamed the John K. Van de Kamp Bridge.  Formerly called the La Loma Bridge, it remains listed on the National Registry of Historic Places.

Hundreds attended the event where they heard friends, family and civic leaders speak endearingly of the man a local publication called “a neighborhood hero.” John and Andrea Van de Kamp’s daughter, Diana, noted that, since her father always sought to build bridges between people, rededicating the bridge in his name was especially fitting. Andrea thanked the city, leant her hand in the official ribbon cutting and led the crowd in the first walk across the elegant neoclassical-style structure.

The John K. Van de Kamp Bridge will remain a lasting tribute to a life dedicated to the service of others.
