John Post died Feb. 23, 2013, at home in Littleton, Colo.
He graduated from Princeton on an accelerated war-years schedule with a bachelor’s degree in aeronautical engineering and served as a pilot in the Air Force through the conclusion of World War II. John’s business career included engineering sales and management, securities-investment management, and entrepreneurship in manufacturing. At Princeton, John served as president of Elm Club.
An avid woodworker, John crafted and sold floor looms now spread to each of the seven continents. John could make or repair most things because he understood how and why they worked.
John is survived by Virginia Foss Post, his wife of 67 years; their children, John M. Post, Nancy P. Messinger, Steven D. Post, and Geoffrey F. Post ’77; 10 grandchildren; and two great-grandchildren.
