He wore the uniform proudly in the naval service on the USS Wasp from 1968 through 1974. He returned to work in Poughkeepsie at IBM. In 1979, he transferred to IBM RTP, where he met and married his best friend and love of his life, Melinda, in 1989. John retired from IBM after 30 years as an HR Manager. He started his second career with North Carolina State government as a manager for the ESC where he worked for over a decade. John loved music of all genres, playing the piano and singing 60's songs, especially the Beatles and Stones, although he could never carry a tune. He excelled as an athlete throughout his life and always cut a fine figure. John recalled with joy the years he spent coaching his children's soccer teams, trips to Disney with three generations, and everything surrounding his family.
