John died Sept. 3, 2016.

He came to Princeton from Turtle Creek High School in Turtle Creek, Pa. He majored in chemical engineering and was a member of Charter Club. He participated in varsity swimming all four years and was a research assistant. He was a captain in the University dining halls.

After Princeton, he earned a master’s degree in chemical engineering at the Carnegie Institute of Technology and worked for Standard Oil Co. In our 10th yearbook, he reported that his specialty was refinery economics, primarily long-range refinery planning and investment studies. He enjoyed overseas operations in particular. By our 50th reunion, he had retired and was enjoying skiing, hiking, and other outdoor activities.

He is survived by his wife, Sharon; and three daughters by a previous marriage, Leslie, Diana, and Lauren. The class sends condolences to his family.
