So sorry to hear this. Thought things had started looking up, but this is not a great time to be in medical distress.

Wow. No words.

I echo Patís words about the NARCON 2018 Saturn V tour (as I was there as well). Amazing wealth of knowledge and willingness to share.

I'm really sorry to hear this. I didn't know John personally, but I am aware of his body of work which won't be forgotten. My 10 year absence from rocketry has taught me that number of fine people have passed away and I will miss them all and their contributions to our hobby. My condolences to his family.
