John retired in 2020 and enjoyed sailing, skiing, and collecting. He was active in his community, coaching youth and high school hockey and lacrosse for decades. He was an orange-and-black fixture at his daughters’ Princeton field hockey games and tailgates, truly embodying the Tiger field hockey family. He will be remembered for his generosity of spirit and welcoming personality.
