Obituary Condolences

RUDY, John Owen Of West Newton, on August 16, 2016. Beloved husband of Susan Herman. Devoted father of Sara Rudy and Paula Rudy. Brother of the late Paula Sternberg. After graduating from the MIT class of '73 with a BSEE, John started his technical career at Gordon Engineering and Analogic. He then founded a small airplane simulator company, Aviation Simulation Technology, purchased by Sippican Corp. He served as Director of Instrumentation at Orion Research and Angenics, and was one of the founders of Medica. The second half of his career was focused on his work with ground penetrating radar (GPS) technology as a designer, architect, engineer and Director of Research and Development for Geophysical Survey Systems, Inc. His intelligence was impressive, but he will be most remembered for his kind and generous nature, his off-beat sense of humor, and the countless personal and professional friendships that he cherished.

For directions, go to www.jcam.org Memorial observance at his residence on Friday from 2-6 pm. Family and friends are invited to gather and share remembrances.
