Career:
Top executive with Oldsmobile and later Cadillac (Vice President of Advertising) for many years after the war.

In Depth:
John had a very prominent association with General Motors Parade of Progress, which toured America from 1936 to 1956. I think at the time he may have been associated with the Oldsmobile Division. The time frame would have been post-war.

Residence:
John lived at Bloomfield Hills, Michigan, as did many General Motors executives, and later after retirement he and his wife moved to Sedona, Arizona. They first settled in a condo in the Village of Oak Creek, and later, when their new home was completed, moved to the Chapel area, below the Chapel of the Holy Cross.

Notation:
Names of parents and John's sister may be inaccurate.

Even though I never met you, I still remember Geri showing me your memorabilia albums from General Motors. You accomplished great things and were involved in some very progressive times.
