John joined Portsmouth Rotary in 1984, with the classification psychiatrist.  An extremely loyal Rotarian, club members will recall his strong attendance and his perpetual seat at the table to the right of the podium at PCC (except on the couple of occasions last fall when the media swarm tried to land in John's lap, at which time he made quite clear the line between press freedom and personal liberty).   We miss his smile and his quiet, thoughtful conversation and presence.
