Hello David
I joined the Stolt Nielsen chartering department in December 1982 during their Panocean Anco acquisition. I was transferred from Houston to Greenwich Ct. and for a while I was in the batchelor quarters apartments at Green Glen. I shared the accomodation with John for the first couple of months until I found permanent housing. At the time he was consulting on Stolt newbuildings at a shipyard in Korea.
My recollections of John were :
He insisted on the Mcneill-Lehrer report for the news every evening.
He organized the budget for food and drink in the apartment (we lived like kings - I was sorry I had to move out when my wife arrived...)
Stolt and the Korean yard were not on the best of terms at the time and John could relate some tales about incidents during his visits to Korea. (Tank lids mysteriously shut and dogged during Stolt inspections and so forth)
I think he moved on to Panama City Fl. when the shipowning group was relocated and other than crossing paths in the Greenwich office once in a while we lost touch.
