I also had the privilege to have John as a teacher. I learned a lot from him, not only solid-state chemistry but also a lot for my life. He was a great teacher and a good man. I will always keep him in good memory.

Julia & Jim -

Our thoughts and prayers are with you at this time. I have fond memories of our time together many years ago on Orcas Island - one of the few times when I was able to spend time with you cousins and Uncle John and Aunt Irene. It has been comforting to learn more about John and the many lives he touched. His life was full and he will always remain an inspiration to us.
Love,
John and Ann Corbett & family

I had the privilege to work with John through the Materials Chemistry Program at the Ames Lab and to also attend church with him at St. John's. I loved to talk with him about the history of the Lab and even interviewed him once about his thoughts on science policy in the United States. I was always amazed at his energy and enthusiasm. I will really miss him.
