Condolence & Memory Journal

Our son Russell is married to John's daughter Susan and on many occasions he would be at family gatherings for Christmas, and especially at grandchildren graduations from high school through college and this gave my wife and myself to get to know John and talk with him. We always found him very interesting and enjoyable company and will miss him very much.

Sorry to hear that one of the Chemistry ole timers has departed. I've known John since his arrival in chemistry. We always called him Dr. Chase and it seemed odd to call him John. He was a worker and loved his family dearly. He never failed to encourage them and he gave all he could for them. Keep making him proud.
