John F. (Henry) Flemming, Jr.
Born November 21, 1945 to John and Nora and raised in St. Louis, MO. Henry developed a lifetime love of pizza and drag racing before joining the US Air Force and serving in the Philippines, Vietnam, and Germany. He traveled the world and made lifelong friendships. After the service he worked for Los Alamos National Laboratory as a Telecommunications Group Leader at NIE-TS and as Radio Shop Team Leader. He received an MBA degree from the College of Santa Fe and was awarded two medals from the US Air Force: The Air Force Commendation and Bronze Star from Viet Nam. He retired from LANL after 38 years. A longtime resident of Los Alamos and White Rock he passed away at home June 10, 2019 at age 73.
