Dear Charlotte, Diane, Mary Ellen, Joan and Acurio Family: I am terribly sorry for your loss. John sounds like he was an amazing human being. Obviously he was incredibly intelligent being essentially a rocket scientist, but his life during WWII and storied career was amazing. With all of his gifts and abilities, the best part of his story is his obvious devotion to his wife and family. With everything he did and achieved in his life, I am sure his proudest moments were being a devoted husband, father and family man. God bless, Brian S
