What a privilege to have know John.
Diane--Too bad he's not closer to Wagner, who went the other way. Margery and I are thinking of you and offering sincere condolences.
John was a very kind and generous man, and he will be missed by all who knew him. I knew John through his knowledge of the Japanese language and philately, which he had a profound interest in, and was ever so helpful in our translation project many years ago. His many interests in Japanese culture and his remembrance of time spent in Austria will always be remembered.
John was quite a scholar of the gentlemanly variety, with a sly wit, who bore his learning and blue-blood heritage lightly, and had a wonderful appreciation of music. A sportsman as well. What great stories he told about Japan, and dogs, and why we should visit a certain restaurant on the way to Vienna because it still knew how to prepare and serve tea the right way.
