Known to Princeton friends as Skip, and to family as Judd, Skip died April 28, 2022, at his home in Binghamton, N.Y. He was a lifelong resident of Binghamton. 

At Princeton, Skip was a member of Tower Club, managed the marching and concert bands, and majored in philosophy. Junior and senior years he lived in Cuyler with suitemates Don Adams, Jeff Caso, Don Cowles, Bill Floyd, Mike Gehret, Tom Muller, Roger Schmenner, Tom Welch, and Gary Wright. 

While Skip considered following his revered father into the medical profession, he instead developed a deep interest in thought. He loved philosophy and wanted his friends to love it as well. While Skip always had time for a friendly conversation, he was also very private. It was a character trait that continued after graduation. 

Skip served in the Army National Guard, where he trained as an operating room technician, then worked in his father’s operating room after returning to Binghamton. Skip, always a lover of sound, started JSG Audio, and designed and installed high-end sound systems and home theaters. Over many years, he worked to design the perfect audio speaker, a project that consumed him until just before his death. 

Skip is survived by his sisters and their husbands, Terri and Keith Harvey, and Wendy and Phil Demartini. The Class of 1969 joins them in mourning the passing of this gentle soul.
