John and I worked together at Raytheon for a number of years and at one time I was John's Section Manager. A person of strong views, John always made a full contribution to proceedings, which were often tinged with a sense of humor. He usually had photos of family on his desk and seemed to enjoy his family very much. He was utterly reliable and dependable. A person who will not be easily forgotten. I wish he had been able to enjoy more of his well-deserved retirement years.

So sorry to hear of John's passing. I was John's secretary at Raytheon from 1990 to 1995. I sat right outside his door for those five years. We had many laughs together. Such a wonderful person of whom I have very fond memories.
