    John was a wonderful human and great Marine serving with distinction in his final years as the Operations Officer for USMC Air Station Beaufort, S.C. He will be sorely missed by country and Corps. Those of us who knew and served with him always knew he had our back as we carried out the many duties of Air Station Flight Ops. Always helpful with that great smile could warm ones heart. Our hearts and prayers are with family and friends as we say good bye to this great American.
