John graduated from Carlton in 1960 and proudly served in the Navy as an officer when he met the love of his life, Kit, in Old Cape Cod. The were happily married for 49 years and were known to bring the laughter, joy and fun wherever they went. John was an amazing father and family man. He enjoyed welcoming his children's friends to the porch for a game of trivia or a hearty debate. He was hard to beat at both. He was a father figure to many, without even knowing it. He and Kit, and later in life Kay, had the opportunity to travel the world. Some of the places he was lucky enough to see were Korea, Africa, Europe, Iceland, Australia and India and he chronicled it all through his love of photography. John is remembered by all for his kindness, generosity, and welcoming spirit. His bright light, love of dirty limericks and radiant smile will be missed by all who love him.
