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.

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.

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.
