John was my first boss as a co-op student intern at IBM Endicott in the Spring of 1987. I have thought often of my early experiences in manufacturing engineering at this facility. John was a thoughtful and gracious mentor; I remember well his words of encouragement to a young graduate student who wanted nothing more than to do a good job for him. His willingness to hire me for those few months led directly to other internships with IBM and to my later career with Lockheed Martin. I'm glad I happened to be thinking of John and these experiences recently; Although I'm sad to learn that he passed awhile ago, I hope that these remembrances give some comfort to his family that his was a life well-led that made a difference to others. Sincerely, Lowell Mills, Marine, lllinois

John's nickname was Sonny. And that's what we all called him. I was seven years younger than him, and he was my idol , .joined the marines at age 15 ! ,CAN YOU IMAGINE GOING TO CAMP LEJUNE AT THAT AGE! (then the chaplain found out his age, and sent him with an honorable discharge. What does he do ?when he reached 17 he joined the Navy, and served aboard the USS Norfolk ,as a gunners mate 1 ST CLASS. not knowing he was learning everything he needed for his position with IBM.He loved to fish and crab when he came to visit in new jersey. Bye sonny I'll miss you bro!!!!
