Fred Thompson reports

Posted by dlucier at Monday, Aug-25-2008 03:12 PM
Virginia and I have heard from Noreen Bottomley that John passed away on July 18th in Queensland Australia where they have been living since he retired from GETSCO.

John was a talented steam and gas turbine field engineer who was well liked by customers.

Our families became aquanited when John and I were working out of the Rome office in the late 1960's when Bob Knorr was the manager there. Later on John was in a supervisor's position in the Bahrain field engineer office before retiring.

John was 92 years of age and he and Noreen were married 66 years.

Noreen's address is:

7, Eucalyptus Court, Capalaba-4157, Queensland, Australia.

Dave,

Sorry to read about John Bottomley.

I was in Trinidad putting 2nd-stage nozzles in a couple of Fed Chem fr 5's in the mid-1960s when I met John. I introduced him to Vern Twombly, the GETSCO manager for field engineering services, and the rest is history.

Regards,
Lee Pike
