John spent his professional career with Royal Dutch Shell Oil, first in New York, then a much longer, final tenure in Houston as a proud, active resident of Southampton Place. In the early phases of that career, John participated in the development and implementation of the initial computerization of Shell.
John was preceded in death by his parents and his friend and life companion, Carlos de Cespedes. He is survived by his sister, Joyce Fannaly and loving friend Carolyn Perseveaux, and many friends too numerous to name.
In tribute, a memorial service is scheduled for Saturday, September 14 at three o'clock in the afternoon at the Bradshaw Carter Home, 1734 W. Alabama Street, Houston, Texas 77098.
