John was always more concerned for others than himself. He was a great friend to everyone!!
I have a long running pool for the NCAA college basketball championship. John won the pool the year our oldest son was going through some medical issues with a brain tumor. When the tournament was over, John wouldn’t accept the monetary reward for winning. He was only worried about the pride and bragging rights for being the champion. We forwarded the winnings to NYU Brain Tumor Foundation in honor of John. I am proud to have known John MacD!! This year's tournament will be conducted in the honor of John ... :) ... Prayers for all to remember the good times and cherish that John is at peace in Eternal Life.

Met John while doing a major HR project at Western Electric back in the 70's. He was very helpful and the project went well. I'll remember him for his sense of humor. RIP John.
