He married Anne Rumsey Moreland in West Hartford, Conn., on September 13, 1958. John attended Northwestern Military and Naval Academy in Lake Geneva, Wis., where he graduated in June of 1943, and then immediately enlisted in the U.S. Army. Upon returning from Europe at the close of World War II as an infantry sergeant with three battle stars, John attended MIT, graduating in 1950 in chemical engineering and business. He did postgraduate study from 1951-53 at the Harvard Business School, and Northwestern University from 1969-1971 in Organization Theory. He had a successful technically oriented business career spanning the development of international standards. John also became quite involved in community activities, chairing the Hinsdale Community Chest and many more. The past 53 years John also directed the foundation his father established for encouraging the study and broader knowledge of Theosophy. The Kern Foundation, with John as former vice chairman, has provided grants to Harvard's Center for the Study of World Religions, the California Institute of Asian Studies, Loyola University Chicago, and the University of Chicago. He loved sharing meals with his family and close friends and always had room for dessert, with perhaps an extra scoop of ice cream. Welcome Our Newest Beta Upsilon Brothers
