John died on May 5, 2000, in Baltimore from pneumonia, a consequence of treatments for recurring non-Hodgkin's lymphoma.
Born in New Haven, John matriculated from the Taft School to Princeton, where he majored in English. In 1962 he earned a JD from the U of Michigan. In 1966 he joined the legal department of Kaiser Aluminum and Chemical Corp., where he spent 34 years. From 1977-82 he managed Kaiser's Australian office and later served as the company's v.p. for international activities.
Following his first bout with lymphoma in 1988, John lived life with renewed vigor. While continuing his Kaiser duties, he earned two business degrees and indulged a passion for biking and travel. In 1994 he fulfilled a dream of managing a small business and purchased Worth House, a Victorian bed and breakfast in Wilmington, N.C.
To Francie, his wife of 42 years, and his children, Kirsten, John, Dana, and David '89, the class sends it deepest sympathy.
