I will always cherish the memories I have spending time with my Grandpa John. He was a kind and caring man who was also very accomplished, traveling all over the world for his work. I was lucky enough to visit during his time working in London and will fondly look back at the fun times I had getting to know him there. He knew I was an avid tennis player, so he always let me stay with him to go to the US Open in Flushing. He always was interested in what I was up to whether over the phone or in-person, even traveling to some of my many tennis matches to root me on. I will miss him very much, but know that he is in a better place now.

We fondly remember John, as a father, grandfather and father-in-law.
We will always remember and cherish the time we spent with him in New York, Washington D.C., Cincinnati, at our cottage in Michigan and in London.
John was always such an easy person to have around, always so pleasant to be with. He was most interesting and it was fascinating to talk with him, especially about his extensive travels. His love of learning was admirable, reading voraciously and even learning a new language in later life.
We loved him dearly and will miss him.
Paul, Nancy, Andrew and Jonathan
