He served in the U.S. Army and Army Reserve, rising to the rank of captain and was a member of the American Legion. A business executive who started at the bottom, John rose quickly through the ranks of The American Tobacco Company to executive vice president in 1973. In that same year, after a near-fatal bout with polio, John started on a journey to rebuild his life and career in a wheelchair. John always will be remembered for his remarkable compassion for people and service to others above all else. His can-do determination to tackle obstacles in life was an inspiration for many, and he was energized by people of all backgrounds. Brother Updates Bob F.
