      • Scientific article dedicated to my dad

        I remember how excited my father would be if one of his articles got published in Nature of Advanced Materials. Now a recent article published by "science friends" of my dad has been dedicated to him. What a great tribute. Thanks!

      • My father's dear friend
        reactie 77   |   niet OK
        John was one of my father's best friends, and I have many fond memories of John through their friendship. My father, Irwin Taub, was also a chemist, and when I was a boy John used to visit us annually just prior to attending the Gordon Research Conference in New Hampshire. John struck me as a super-cool guy, and my dad (and I) really looked forward to his visits. John always asked me about my interests, and he was sincere about hearing my responses and perspectives -- he always had something funny and introspective to add. My impression in those days, as a boy, was that many of my dad's friends were very smart and interesting, but most of them were quite serious people. John fell into the category of someone smart, and certainly interesting, but also very funny -- he brought out a sense of humor in my father that I didn't often get to see. In the mid-90s we arranged to all meet in Delft, at the time of a scientific conference (for them) and visits to Europe (myself, my sister) and we had an amazing time. It was only a few days, but we spent a lot of time together and had an authentic Dutch experience with the Warman family as our gracious hosts. I'll never forget this wonderful experience, and I think of it often when I remember my father and want to think about the good times we shared. I'm saddened to hear of John's passing, and wish the rest of the family strength during this difficult time. My father had a true friend in John, and that friendship was indeed cherished and reciprocated.

      • My COOL brother-in-law
        reactie 76   |   niet OK
        I was just 12 years old when my sister Marilyn told me she was dating a guy from ENGLAND! It was around 1965, and the Beatles were my heart-throbs. Long hair and a British accent were enough to send me into pre-teen ecstasy. Imagine my delight when I was able to fly, all by myself, to Pittsburgh meet this wonderful John Warman. John was MUCH BETTER than a Beatle.....he was funny, smart, engaging, and I could tell he loved my sister. I was delighted to be a 13 year old bridesmaid, and it was incredibly cool that John's friend played bagpipes at the wedding. John was the best brother-in-law a girl could ask for!

        Fast forward over the 50 years, seeing John embrace his roles as father, husband, scientist, loyal friend, and loving grandpa. It has been wonderful having John in our family. May the road rise up to meet John, may the sun shine warm upon his face, may the rain fall soft upon his fields, and may God hold him in the palm of his hand.

      • John, mijn tweede promotor!
        reactie 75   |   niet OK
        Ik hoor pas net van goede vriend Wouter dat John is overleden. Mijn gedachten gaan terug naar een geweldige promotietijd waar ik als OIO werkzaam was bij Jan Verhoeven. Er was een intensief samenwerkingsverband met Michael Paddon Row Uit Australië, John en Thijs en Jan en Jan. Ik ben wat keren met de trein naar Delft Zuid gegaan, daarna lopend naar het IRI en dan onder begeleiding van John, Ken, later Stefan meten aan de geweldige verbindingen van Michael PR. Liefst op vrijdag want dan kon ik de vrijdagmiddagborrel bijwonen, want gezellig was ie met veel humor. Ik ben John enorm dankbaar voor zijn belangrijke aandeel in de vorming van mijn academische vaardigheden en het was een eer dat hij in mijn promotiecommissie zat en mij het nog even lastig maakte voordat ik de doctorstitel mocht gaan gebruiken. Beste John, rust zacht...

        You were the best scientific mentor I could have wished for. I am so grateful to be one of your PhDs.

        Hi John
        You will be sorely missed not only by your immediate family but by your many friends and colleagues in and outside the academic world. What most impressed me about you was that you wore your learning and academic achievements so lightly. I know of many in that world who put on airs and graces to impress others with their achievements - but that was not you. You came across as "Mr. Regular Guy" and I was surprised, when I first got to know you, to hear from a mutual friend how highly regarded you are for your scientific achievements. You had not a sniff of arrogance and remained open and friendly to all. You even kept your northern accent and no assumed BBC British! That's not to say that you withstood fools lightly. You fearlessly criticised others if you didn't agree with them - even those higher up in your heirarchy. That takes courage and strength of mind!
        In short John you are a role model for the rest of us mortals from whom we can learn an awful lot.

      • Lieve buurman
        reactie 70   |   niet OK
        Sinds drie jaar woon ik op de Menno ter braak flat. Het was fijn om buren zoals John en Marilyn te hebben. Ik voelde mij direct welkom. Altijd in voor een praatje en een grapje. Dat ga ik heel erg missen.

        Lieve buurman, het was een eer u gekend te hebben. Rust zacht.

        Heel veel sterkte voor Marilyn en de rest van de familie in de aankomende, moeilijke tijd.

        I am so very saddened to hear of John's passing. He was a colleague and much treasured friend of my late husband Dr. Ron Cooper and I spent some wonderful moments with he and Marilyn on our various overseas trips and also back here in Melbourne. I still have a photo of John, Ron and Myran Sauer outside a kiosk in the main square with glasses of beer and Oude Genever prominant on the table in front of them. I remember John with great affection as a generous and intelligent man in so many different ways. Aside from his considerable professional talents, his great love of family, of his friends, of travel, and of his adopted home town of Delft were so patently obvious to all who knew him. I feel privileged to have known him and to have experienced the generosity and kindness extended to me by him and his wonderful family. If there is a world on the other side, he and Ron will have so much to share and reflect on! When the pain of loss subsides a little I know Marilyn, Andrea, Peter and extended family will have wonderful memories of a life truly well lived.
        Affectionately, Ngaire Johansen
