After 31 years, John retired from IBM on September 30, 2003. IBM provided a party complete with cake and a professional photographer. The pictures from this event begin and end with the photos of the cakes.

Afterwards, the party moved to the North by Northwest Restaurant & Brewpub for several more hours. The remaining photos (taken by Jane) capture many of the 50+ people who came to help celebrate.

Many thanks to everyone who attended these two events. It was a great career full of terrific people.
