Just learned of Dr. John's passing today. I worked with John at Cotton Incorporated for over twenty years before his retirement from the company. He was truly an inspiration to me and others and a tremendous resource for us as co-workers. He was a mentor to me and I learned much from his knowledge and experience. We worked on a number of projects together and his willingness and unselfish nature to share his knowledge was a blessing to me. John made significant contributions to the textile industry.
